Niko Kovac watches Everton vs Chelsea from directors' box

Caretaker Everton manager Duncan Ferguson

Caretaker Everton manager Duncan Ferguson

Everton were led by caretaker manager Duncan Ferguson for the first time, with the Scot taking the reins from Marco Silva following his dismissal two days ago.

Silva watched on as Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored a brace for Everton, with Richarlison also scoring, while Mateo Kovacic found the net for Chelsea. The win saw the home side rise to 14th in the table ahead of the rest of the weekend's fixtures.

Ferguson appeared the most satisfied with the win, celebrating not once, but twice with the club's ball boys, embracing his players in bear hugs for good measure.

"Honestly, I won't be going asking for the job", Ferguson said.

Everton ended last season in promising fashion with one defeat from their final eight games and six clean sheets during the run.

Meanwhile, the result marked a third defeat in four league matches for Chelsea, whose victory against Aston Villa on Wednesday followed losses to West Ham and Manchester City.

However, Spurs boss Mourinho has insisted that he is not concerned about Chelsea FC's transfer situation because he thinks they will struggle to find players better than what Frank Lampard already has at the club. "Then the other two were just really poor defending from us. We looked like we were getting back into the game at 2-1, we can't give away the ridiculous goals we gave away".
