In a highly contested match, Chelsea was held to a 2-2 draw by Everton in the Premier League on Sunday. The game saw Chelsea take the lead twice, but they were denied all three points by a late goal from Everton substitute Ellis Simms in the regulation time.

The Blues started off strong, with Joao Felix scoring his first goal for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge since joining them on loan from Atletico Madrid.

However, Everton was quick to respond, leveling the score line through Abdoulaye Doucouré's flick header.

Chelsea regained the lead through Kai Havertz's penalty after Reece James was fouled in the box.

Despite Graham Potter's men looking likely to secure the victory, Simms made a powerful run past Kalidou Koulibaly to score a much-needed equalizer for the Toffees.

While the result saw both teams maintain their positions on the table, with Chelsea remaining in tenth and Everton in fifteenth, there were some standout performers on both sides.

Unfortunately, there were also a few players who did not perform as well as expected for Chelsea.

Benoit Badiashile had the worst performance of the back three, giving away silly and unnecessary fouls that allowed Everton to apply pressure on the Chelsea goal.

Overall, it was a frustrating result for Chelsea, who will be looking to bounce back in their next match. With important fixtures coming up, they will need to regroup quickly and find their winning form once again.
