Everton absolutely taking it to Chelsea. Up 2-0 after 22 minutes and could have had a couple more if not for some great saves.

Naismith didn't start, came on around 10' as an injury replacement, and almost immediately scored twice. Chelsea doing lots of standing around defensively

It's like the entire team turned in to a pumpkin all at the same time. Quite impressive really.

Kyle Martino with a nice line about Chelsea: "Same names on the back of the jerseys, but different players wearing them."

Lovren starts AGAIN
 
A poor showing from Lovren and Rodgers's seat begins to get warmer IMO.
 
I'm beyond any hope of understanding what is in the skull of Brendan "Bobby Valentine" Rodgers.

The Slums of Shaolin
De Gea, Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Shaw, Carrick, Schweinsteiger, Herrera, Memphis, Mata, Fellaini
 
 
Rooney is obviously out injured so Fellaini has to start up front while Martial is on the bench.  I don't mind it because his physical presence could be an asset today.  Martial could come on as a sub later.
 
I'm baffled by Schneiderlin on the bench.  A Carrick/Schweinsteiger midfield is very slow.

I'm interested in seeing how Firmino tries to go after them. He's not a track star, but he's very shifty. Could be a threat to draw yellows.

California. Duh.
I do like the all-white away kits. They even managed to not throw a bunch of random mid-90's-inspired patterns all over them.

Takeaways from the Sky Sports stream:
  • I love Martin Tyler.
  • They call Memphis "Depay." Which is awesome since he's such a cunt on the field.
  • British commercials are insanely awesome.
Edit: Clarity.
