Everton 0 – Chelsea 0
It ended all-square at Goodison Park on Saturday as Sam Allardyce did another job on a top six Premier League.
After a 1-1 draw away at Liverpool in the derby, Everton frustrated Chelsea in round 19 of the season.
The Blues had the better chances in the game. Ashley Williams almost scored an own goal when his header crashed against his own bar. But in the end Big Sam’s unbeaten record with the Toffees extended to six games.
Chelsea’s ugly chant at Everton
With Christmas just around the corner, a certain breed of football chants are heard on the terraces.
One of the common chants sung by rivals to Liverpool and Everton fans during this period is ‘Feed the Scousers’.
Chelsea fans sung it loudly at Goodison Park on Saturday.
Liverpool fans call out Chelsea
It’s worth noting that Sam Allardyce recently spoke about the importance of food banks at this time of year.
Everton spent time helping the needy in a foot bank in Liverpool before the festive football schedule kicked in.
If you watch anything today, make it this. 🎧

The chant is obviously in poor taste.
And that point was flagged up by the popular Liverpool Twitter account, the Anfield Wrap, during the Everton game.
It seems obvious that many people are offending by the ‘Scousers’ chant.
Is it just good banter or does it cross the line?
The social media reaction is below.
Chelsea fans in early with “Feed the Scousers” at Goodison. Because poverty and not being able to feed your family at Christmas is the best kind of “football banter” isn’t it?

"Feed the scousers, let them know that 1,182,954 people in the UK rely on food banks"

'Feed the Scousers' is the most Tory chant going, wouldn't expect anything less from Chelsea fans like #EVECHE
