And that's it. Everton grew into the match while Chelsea just looked like they could no longer be bothered. Everton were competent and clinical, but not special. Chelsea were pitiful, growing worse by the minute.
Giroud sends a point-blank shot at goal from yards out and Pickford is there too sav-... watch Azpilicueta block it away.
Gana and Digne foul up their attempts at a clearance before Schneiderlin hoofs it away.
There have been five minutes of added time indicated.
Davies, full of energy, gets a free kick as Loftus-Cheek handles his ball forward.
The fans are fed up.
- OffGylfi SigurdssonEverton
- OnTom DaviesEverton
Davies is on for Sigurdsson.
Hudson-Odoi wallops a shot at goal from distance which forces Pickford to beat it over the bar. He just offers more than the other wingers in this side (Pedro and Willian obviously, not Hazard).
Sigurdsson releases a pass for Walcott to chase beyond Azpilicueta, and his well struck shot brings a smart dive from Kepa.

Here's old man Walcott.
Alonso is booked for a shove on Richarlison to dirsupt a counter-attack.

GOAL! Everton 2-0 Chelsea. Sigurdsson scores - Kepa guesses correctly with a dive to the right, and Sigurdsson is able to make amends with the follow-up.
PENALTY! Richarlison seizes on a loose ball in the box, he has his foot trodden on by Alonso, and Anthony Taylor makes an easy decision.

Schneiderlin on for Gomes.
- OffGonzalo HiguaínChelsea
- OnOlivier GiroudChelsea
Giroud and Loftus-Cheek on for Barkley and Higuain.
Barkley is clutching his left calf, in a manner that suggests that is him certainly done for today.
- Yellow cardAntonio RüdigerChelsea
Rudiger is booked for handing off Bernard, who took his reaction to extremes.
- Yellow cardAndré GomesEverton
Gomes gets booked for a trip on Pedro.
Calvert-Lewin tips a foot up at Digne's cross from the left but sends it parallel to goal. A moment later, Keane heads well over from a corner.
The ball runs to Alonso as it ran over Hazard's head, and Alonso is on hand at the back post to lash a volley into the side netting.
Chelsea have had most of the ball since the goal, but Everton are organised well in their own half.
Pedro is absolutely flattened by a forceful Mina side tackle. Fair but tough.
GOAL! Everton 1-0 Chelsea. Richarlison scores - Corner on the right for Everton. Sigurdsson takes, Calvert-Lewin heads down for Kepa to block, and Richarlison is on hand to nod in from a couple of yards out.
Gomes leans back on the edge of the box and curls in a shot from the edge of the box that Kepa acrobatically tips over.
- 2nd Half
We go again. Calvert-Lewin sends in a ball to the back post that is just a couple of yards ahead of Bernard, with Kepa scrambling.

Half time. See you in 15 minutes.
Here's a pleasant banner.
There are two minutes of added time indicated.
A minute left for someone to do something.
Pedro spins on the corner of the box, shrugs off a shove, beats three players and from just on the edge of the D, sends a low shot inches wide of the post.
Barkley boshes a free kick into the wall.
Hazard is running away from goal, and Richarlison slides in to concede a free kick, just on the left of the box.
Chelsea have yet more of the ball, but someone needs to move it quicker, and make some space to attack.
Here's some hot action.
- Yellow cardMarcos AlonsoChelsea
Sigurdsson curls in a free kick to the near post, but Calvert-Lewin can only head over.
Richarlison is tripped by Alonso - booked - after getting down the right wing behind the full-back.
Hazard plays in Barkley, who toes a shot inside for Higuain at the near post, and he lifts his effort over the goal.
Luiz rakes out a pass to Azpilicueta, who finds Pedro inside him, and Everton need a couple of headers to clear the ball away.
Chelsea move forward fluidly but so slowly that Everton can get back in numbers. Hazarnd an Pedro move it left, the Spaniard plays a one-two with Alonso on the overlap, and Pedro slices a side-footed shot wide of the far post.
Corner on the right after Digne's back post rolls past Mina, who missed the path of the ball.
Chelsea and Everton have reached a stalemate.
Pedro whips in an early cross that is just a yard or two ahead of Hazard, trying to burst behind the defence.
Gomes digs out a shot from distance towards Kepa, and the 'keeper does well with an effort that bounces just in front of him.
Calvert-Lewis is penalised, and he seems to have trod on Jorginho's fingers as he ran towards the ball after bundling him over.
Bernard pulls back Kante as he attempts to drive into the box, but he's tackled after losing the moment, and the ref lets it go.
Higuain tees up Jorginho to a strike at goal, and he whistles in a show that goes low and straight to Pickford.
Chelsea are forcing Everton to just go long whenever they attempt an attack.
Barkley is, unsurprisingly, not too popular with the home crowd so far.
Everton are in Chelsea's half, briefly, before going back to the defence. Another attack ends when Coleman's low ball inside is cut out. The ball is then worked to Calvert-Lewin after Digne intercepts a pass from Chelsea, and the striker curls over.
Sarri appears to have a tab filter on the go.
Chelsea fans were cross before the game got undeway.
Gueye can continue, for now at least, and we get going again.
Gueye is hurt and down for treatment. It's not obvious what happened to him yet.
Chelsea are controlling the ball with Everton sitting deep. They can barely get a touch before Chelsea have them on the back foot, one move after another.
Hazard has room on the edge of the box to shoot, space in front of him, and he whips in an effort that beats Pickford and clangs off the post. Seconds later, Higuain springs the offside trap, brings it down brilliantly and scuffs a shot at goal that Pickford can save.
Digne comes out to put the ball out of play with Pedro ready to attack down the right.
Chelsea's turn to settle down with the ball with their back four.
Everton are keeping the ball in defence for now, but Rudiger wallops Calvert-Lewin as the two go for a high ball just inside Chelsea's half. No booking.

The match gets underway.
And we know Everton are here, which is good.
The players are warming up.
Please send your very intelligent comments to @lxndrnthrtn on Twitter.
Marco Silva: "All of us, we know, not just in football but in life, that we cannot achieve important things without consistency. You cannot be a winner without maturity and consistency. It's one of those things that we are missing. We have to sort it out."
Here's Maurizio Sarri on the club's attacking play:
‘We are looking more consistent in terms of defensive solidity, first of all,’ Sarri said. ‘We are conceding less than before. In this moment the most important thing for us is to be solid.
‘We are more consistent with our results, but not at the moment with our performances, especially in the offensive phase. Sometimes we have played with very good quality in the offensive phase, sometimes not. Now we need to start in the offensive phase playing every match with the same ideas.'
Chelsea continue to feature Hudson-Odoi on the bench, so expect some zesty tweets from the furious if things don't go their way.
Everton start with 30-year-old Theo Walcott on the bench, whose career has kind of stayed exactly the same. Quite good, but that's it.
