Chelsea show title credentials as they sensationally whitewash Everton 5-0 (Match analysis/photos)

Chelsea football club, under Antonio Conte, is here to stay! The London 
Club showed real EPL title credentials on Saturday as they thrashed 
Ronald Koeman's Everton 5-0 and are now 1st on the table, with 25 
To say Chelsea was impressive is an understatement.

They bulldozed Everton's defence every time they had the ball in the 
opposition area, and almost a year since Jose Mourinho was sacked by the
club, Chelsea could be entering a redefining era. 

Chelsea started with a 3-4-3 formation, their main formation this 
season, while Everton started with a 3-5-2 formation with Lukaku and 
Bolasie upfront, a tactic that backfired from the very start for the 
Merseyside club.

Chelsea's starting 
line-up for the game included Courtois, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill, 
Nigeria's Victor Moses, Kante, Matic, Alonso, Pedro, Costa, Hazard while
Everton started with Stekelenburg, Coleman, Ashley Williams, Jagielka, 
Oviedo (Mirallas), Funes Mori, Barry , Bolasie , Barkley, Cleverley and 
Romelu Lukaku.

Diego Costa got 
seriously fouled with blood dripping down his ankle at the 7th minute 
and even  when everyone taught he couldn't continue, he came back to 
lead his team to victory.

Bolasie, starting 
upfront for Everton, fouled Victor Moses in the 14th minute then in the 
17th minute, Moses, one of the most in form players in the EPL at the 
moment, had a shot on target.

GOAL!! Eden Hazard received a wonderful assist in the 19th minute from Diego Costa to score Chelsea's first goal.

Chelsea scored again! A low Pedro cross in the 20th minute found Marcos
Alonso at the back post, whose low shot goes straight through the legs 
of the Everton keeper.

A yellow card was given to Jagielka of 
Everton for raising his voice at the referee when David Luiz shielded 
the ball from him and Nigeria's Victor Moses in the 33rd minute fired a 
shot that hit the bar.

Chelsea were marauding the opposition 
and seemed to have more possession than Everton who were still getting 
to grips with the early goals.

GOAL!! In the 
42nd minute, Diego Costa scored from a corner kick. Stamford Bridge was 
lit! The home fans couldn't believe the football they were watching. 
Chelsea entered half time 3-0 up.

Halftime- Chelsea 3-0 Everton.

second half began, with Chelsea still maintaining their tactical 
balance and formation and in the 49th minute, Diego Costa missed a goal 
after his shot suffered a deflection from a defender.

Hazard, then showed why he was truly a contender for Player of the 
year, as he scored Chelsea's 4th goal in the 56th minute after a stylish
'one-two' pass with Pedro.

Pedro finally 
scored the 5th goal after a rebound  which fell perfectly for Pedro, and
the Spaniard calmly slotted into the net. Everton's fans started 
leaving the stadium as they saw there was no coming back for their 
beloved team.

Full-Time - Chelsea 5-0 Everton

no mistake, Chelsea are the most in-form team in the league at the 
moment and physically, tactically and mentally have themselves to blame 
if at the end of the season they don't win the league (or at least end 
up in top 3)
