Terrific Toffees earn draw at Bridge

Date published: Saturday 12th December 2009 5:21

Everton took a shock 12th-minute lead when a Louis Saha header off a Leighton Baines free-kick hit the post and rebounded into the net off the back of Petr Cech.

But Chelsea hit back and goals from Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka put the Blues in front only for substitute Ayegbeni Yakubu to pounce from a throw-in to level the scores in first-half injury time.

Drogba restored Chelsea’s lead but another blunder from a free-kick allowed Drogba’s attempted clearance to bounce off the back of Saha to make it 3-3.

Everton became the first team this season to leave Stamford Bridge with any reward but Chelsea should have put this game beyond the Toffees long before half-time.
