Stamford Bridge—London, England.

Chelsea 2-1 Everton

Chelsea rounded off a long, hard season with a home win over Everton.

Juan Mata gave the Blues the lead after Tim Howard spilled Demba Ba's shot as early as the seventh minute, but Steven Naismith equalised after stealing the ball off of David Luiz's toe.

Everton were by far the better side across the opening 45 minutes, but after the break Rafa Benitez's boys came out swinging.

They battered the Toffees' goal with shot after shot and eventually found the breakthrough: Fernando Torres with a laced finish from close range.
