Ellis Simms’s late goal ensured that Everton left Stamford Bridge with a point following their 2-2 draw on Saturday evening.

The host was looking for a fourth straight win in the league and things seemed to be going in their direction when Joao Felix gave them the lead early in the second half but the Toffees struck back at a set piece little over a quarter of an hour later when Abdoulaye Doucouré converted from James Tarkowski’s flick-on at the far post before the Londoners retook the lead through a Havertz penalty after Reece James had been sent sprawling.

However, Sean Dyche’s side snatched a point in the final minute of normal time through substitute Ellis Simms producing a superb individual effort.

In another game of the day, Southampton earned a last-minute draw at home to Tottenham thanks to James Ward-Prowse’s stunning penalty.

Right on the stroke of half time, however, the away side went ahead. Pedro Porro found himself in acres of space inside the area and fired in past Gavin Bazunu. Adams bundled in from a Theo Walcott cross to level matters but Antonio Conte’s men went ahead for the second time just after the hour mark as Harry Kane headed home.

And the win seemed to be cemented with 15 minutes to go as Ivan Perisic finished with aplomb to net his first Spurs goal. But Southampton weren’t having that as Walcott finished neatly from eight yards out to make the last 10 minutes a thriller.
