Everton vs Chelsea Highlights: Premier League 2022-23, EVE 0-1 CHE – Chelsea get off the mark in the Premier League with a 1-0 win over Everton on the opening day at Goodison Park. Jorginho scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot after Ben Chilwell was brought down in the box in first-half stoppage-time. It was a game of few chances, but the visitors were resilient enough to fend off the few attempts Everton made to notch an equaliser to secure the three points.

Everton vs Chelsea Highlights: Chelsea beat Everton 1-0 at Goodison Park in season opener

Having been left without a striker through Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s knee injury and Salomon Rondon’s suspension, Frank Lampard’s hosts sat deep and successfully frustrated Chelsea early on.

But Everton’s resistance was finally broken when Jorginho converted from the spot on the stroke of half-time, and the Toffees were unable to find a way past Edouard Mendy despite an improved showing after the break.

That meant Chelsea won their Premier League opener for a third consecutive season despite failing to produce a fluid performance on Merseyside.

Everton suffered an early blow when Ben Godfrey was carried off with a serious lower-leg injury, but they forced Mendy into the first meaningful save through James Tarkowski’s 24th-minute header.

Chelsea debutant Raheem Sterling was denied by the offside flag 42 minutes in, having stabbed home after Jordan Pickford fumbled N’Golo Kante’s effort, but Chelsea made their dominance count nine minutes into a lengthy bout of stoppage time.

Abdoulaye Doucoure hauled Ben Chilwell down as the wing-back burst into the area, allowing Jorginho to convert neatly into the bottom-left corner as Pickford went the wrong way.

Everton found Mendy in inspired form as they looked to respond after the break, with the Senegal stopper denying both Demarai Gray and Doucoure with strong saves.

Ten minutes of additional time were signalled after a medical emergency in the crowd required a brief stoppage, but Chelsea’s experienced rear-guard stood firm.

What’s next?

Everton are next in action on the road to Aston Villa next Saturday in the Premier League. Chelsea host Tottenham in their first home match of the term next Sunday.
