CHELSEA 2-0 EVERTON
In the end, a comfortable afternoon for the Premier League champions, who are up and running at home and head into the international break on six points and in the top four.
For Everton, it's a first defeat of the season, courtesy of first-half strikes from Cesc Fabregas and Alvaro Morata.
90+2: Throw-in to Chelsea down the right as Azpilicueta works it over to the other side to Willian but Everton eventually clear.
90+1: Kante is stopped by a brilliant challenge from Besic, who has done a very effective job this second half in difficult circumstances.
90: We're into three additional minutes at the end of this second half.
89: SHOT! Batshuayi wins the aerial ball and finds Willian, whose shot through the legs of Williams is saved at the second attempt by Pickford.
87: Andreas Christensen comes on for Moses as the free-kick is gathered by Courtois.
87: YELLOW! Azpilicueata goes into the book for a foul on Lennon on the left side. Free-kick to Everton in a dangerous position.
86: SAVE! Lennon sets up Gueye who fires towards the top corner, but Courtois is equal to it, tipping the ball over for a corner. The positive changes from Koeman are forcing the issue now.
85: Willian and Batshuayi fail to make the most of a break down the other end as Rooney clears from Fabregas' ensuing corner. Alvaro Morata has an ice pack on his head. I don't think he's got a lump on his head. Just a measure of how hot it is!
84: CHANCE! Good period of possession from Everton, as the ball is worked out to the left to Sigurdsson, and the midfielder's cross is onto the head of Williams, but he can't find the far corner. That's a great position and he should be working Courtois.
83: Everton are making their third and final change as Jagielka leaves the field and on in his place comes Aaron Lennon. He was a second-half sub in Split, so a tactical change from Koeman.
81: CLOSE! Rooney's free-kick is cleared, but only as far as Besic who heads the ball back into the box, and Williams hooks it over his head towards goal, but his effort sails just onto the roof of the net.
80: BLOCK! Jagielka is careless in possession as Willian runs free down the right. He finds Bakayoko on the cut-back, but his shot is blocked by Besic. A let-off for the Everton skipper.
79: Everton win the free-kick after a powerful run forward from Rudiger. Positive play from the centre-half.
78: Second substitution for Chelsea and Stamford Bridge rise to applaud Alvaro Morata. He is replaced by Michy Batshuayi.
76: Moses catches Leighton Baines, it's completely not needed and he is the latest player to be yellow carded.
75: Tiemoue Bakayoko is going to be handed 15 minutes here as he replaces Pedro. The diminutive Spaniard has been outstanding again, especially in that opening half.
74: Williams has enjoyed more success in his duel with Morata this half, but no soon have Everton regained the ball that they concede possession with an aimless lump forward.
72: Everton look so much more complete with Calvert-Lewin running the channels this second half. He looks up but there's no one in a grey shirt running into the box. Koeman's side might as well go for it, and they are starting to assert themselves belatedly.
71: Rooney's afternoon has just got even worse as he's been giving Jon Moss too much verbal for the referee's liking. He's into the book.
70: Everton break away as Calvert-Lewin wins possession for his team, and the ball finds its way to Rooney outside the box. He tries his luck from distance, but he gets his shot horribly wrong, and the ball trickles out for a goal-kick.
68: Holgate does well to usher Alonso out for a corner, after Pedro breaks again menacingly from midfield. Rudiger has gone forward but the ball is played towards Azpilicueta whose shot is blocked.
67: Pedro is clattered by Besic. Antonio Conte will be putting his plans together over the international break for the Champions League return. He's yet to make a substitution today.
PIC: Antonio Conte is suited and booted again on the touchline and has been energetically barking out instructions all game.
66: Pickford looks to immediately release Calvert-Lewin, who again shows himself to receive the ball. He's already putting himself about, giving his side an outlet they desperately need.
65: Bizarre pause in play as Marcos Alonso has managed to break the corner-flag with his cross.
64: Chelsea won't want to give Everton any encouragement, as Calvert-Lewin is straight into action with a challenge on Courtois to concede a free-kick.
62: Sandro looks over, and it is him who comes off to be replaced by Dominic Calvert-Lewin. The youngster has certainly made a name for himself so far this term with an excellent performance at Manchester City last Monday. What can he do here...
Willian is a 10/1 Price Boost (form 9/1) to score the next goal with our betting partners Sky Bet. A 2-2 draw is now a 50/1 shot.

60: SHOT! Williams does all the hard work in snuffing out Morata, but he doesn't clear his lines and Moses is onto the loose ball. He shoots low with his right foot, but Pickford gets down to save.
58: WIDE! Now it really should be three as Sandro loses the ball and Pedro runs forward and rather than shoot across goal, he tries to find the near post, but his effort is wide of the target.
57: Everton avoid conceding a third as Azpilicueta's low ball is left by Williams, and the ball goes through a body of players and out for a throw-in.
56: Willian has been everywhere for Chelsea and a lot of his classy touches are being pulled off. He is there to put pressure on Besic deep in his own penalty area to win back possession after the Bosnian is forced into a hurried clearance.
55: Morata links nicely with Willian, but Michael Keane is there to cut out the danger. Chelsea just warming into the half now. Gueye gives the ball away far too cheaply to turn over possession.
53: Chelsea are yet to really get going in this second half with Morata subdued so far. Baines is sloppy as he looks to get clear of Moses, but the Nigerian winger snaps in to win it. He plays a one-two with Willian, but Besic is across to snuff out the danger. Let off for Baines.
50: CHANCE! Everton pick up on a rare lapse from Chelsea as Rooney charges forward with the ball and releases Sandro, but the Spaniard's shot is dragged and deflected wide. First real chance for the visitors.
49: Remember, Besic is playing amid reports his father was shot on Saturday in Bosnia. Let's see how he fares with his side already trailing 2-0.
48: The set piece comes to nothing, but Chelsea come forward again as Pedro looks to bend his left-foot shot around Williams, but he doesn't catch it clean.
47: Everton weren't an attacking force in the first half and Rooney will now look to get closer to Sandro. But Chelsea start the second half as they ended the first as Pedro wins a corner off Keane.
46: Chelsea get us back underway for this second half. Everton make a change as Muhamed Besic replaces Tom Davies.
Morata to add another is a 5/2 Sky Bet Price Boost (from 9/4) at half time. With Chelsea in control, a repeat of last year's 5-0 scoreline is into 22/1. It had been 50/1 at kick off.

CHELSEA DOMINATING AT THE BREAK
Chelsea are comfortable at the break thanks to strikes from Cesc Fabregas and Alvaro Morata. Plenty to ponder for Ronald Koeman, who may feel the best form of limiting the damage now is to attack.
45: Rooney is fired up as he goes right through the back of David Luiz in an aerial challenge. He's not happy with the service he's receiving.
45: There will be two additional minutes at Stamford Bridge.
44: Everton's three-man defence was designed to nullify this Chelsea forward line but the game is going the same way as last season, with the ball continually coming straight back towards the visitors' goal. It ended 5-0 to the hosts last November.
42: Chelsea on the front foot again as Fabregas finds Pedro running off Keane's shoulder, and it is Fabregas who then tries his luck from range but Pickford gets down to gather.
GOAL! CHELSEA 2-0 EVERTON (Morata, 40)
Morata has his second of the day. It's a quality ball in from Cesar Azpilicueta, and Pickford is in no man's land as Morata rises to head home. Michael Keane just got sucked under the ball. Chelsea well worth their 2-0 lead.
CHELSEA 1-0 EVERTON
39: Keane clears Fabregas' measured ball towards Morata. That was very nearly the perfect pass, you can see Morata and Fabregas are on a very good wavelength.
