In the 13th minute, after a center shot by Hakeem Siak, Jordan Bigford was forced to intervene when he touched the ball with his fingertips.

The shelling continued for the next few minutes.
Mason Mount’s shot in the 36th minute had to be saved by an Everton goalkeeper. The spectators never threatened Chelsea’s goal in the first half.

Four minutes later, what some expected happened. Anthony Gordon spun the ball perfectly from a free kick. Jared Brantwhite jumped to this bite and hit the ball into the goal, right post. It was 1: 1, and in light of Chelsea’s previous advantage, this result should be considered sensational.
Bigford was in trouble for the last quarter hour. Diego Silva’s shot in the 79th minute was saved by the England national team goalkeeper. Chelsea, who rushed to attack, were a bit careless in defense, but Everton failed to plan for her.
