Comments:

League position: 14th Including six games on loan at Nottingham Forest, this was John Terry's 700th club career appearance in all competitions. He became the third player to score at both ends in a Premier League game in this season (also Troy Deeney, Watford v Manchester United and Olivier Giroud, Arsenal v Sunderland). The last Chelsea player to score a goal and concede an own goal in a Premier League game was Scott Minto at Derby County on 1 March 1997. [c/o Infostrada] Diego Costa had now scored five goals in his five appearances under recently appointed manager Guus Hiddink. Reigning champions Chelsea had now conceded 33 Premier League goals; more than they had in the entire 2014-15 season. John Terry scored in the eighth minute of added time in the second half. He was booked for excessive celebration after this late equaliser. The Premier League’s Goal Accreditation Panel ruled on the following: - Chelsea’s second goal against Everton on Saturday 16th January 2016 has been confirmed as a Cesc Fabregas goal. (Circular 15 – 21st January 2016)

Comments:

League position: 11th John Terry became only the second opponent to score at both ends in an Everton league game after Tony Cascarino of Aston Villa on 5 May 1990 in League Division One. Both games ended in 3-3 draws. [c/o Steve Johnson, Everton Complete Record] This was Toffees boss Roberto Martinez's 250th game as a manager in the Premier League. Since 28 November 2015, Everton had now dropped a divisional-high of 11 points from leading positions in nine Premier League games. They remained as the only Premier League team who had yet to win a game against opposition in the top half of the table in this season. Ramiro Funes Mori was booked in the second minute of added time in the second half for excessive celebration following him scoring Everton’s third goal.
