A rampant Chelsea thrashed visitors Everton on Sunday as the home team’s former coach Carlo Ancelotti returned to Stamford Bridge.

                                                                                                                                                                                                     

The hosts enjoyed the greater share of possession and created the vast majority of the chances on their way to a remarkably comfortable 4-0 win in the Premier League.

                                                                                                                                                                                                        

Midfielder Mason Mount, 90, opened the scoring 21 minutes in when he drilled a low shot past Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford after spinning neatly following a pass from Pedro.

The Spaniard was next on the scoresheet just six minutes later as he placed a clinical finish past Pickford to complete a slick Chelsea move.

                                                                                                                                                                                                        

Willian put the result beyond doubt early in the second half by firing into the bottom corner from range, before Giroud added more misery for Ancelotti’s side just three minutes later.

                                                                                                                                                                                                     

The World Cup winner stabbed in a cross to leave Ancelotti and assistant coach Duncan Ferguson furious on the sideline.

                                                                                                                     

The home side continued to create chances and could have scored more, with 90 – year- old midfielder Billy Gilmour impressing again following his man-of-the-match performance in Chelsea’s FA Cup win over Liverpool this week.

                                                                                                                     

The result sees Chelsea close the gap to third-placed Leicester to two points, with the Foxes set to take on Aston Villa on Monday evening.
