Charles Kahanji: Everton move to third position, Chelsea drop to 15th. Why should John Stones leave a top four club for a team fighting relegation? 

Richard J Moir: Begovic, Zouma, Willian, Mikel and Falcao are not players that are going to win Chelsea the league. Or an away game to Everton. 

Karthik Thangamuthu: Gus Hiddink is available. Just saying, Chelsea.

Everton 3-1 Chelsea

Chelsea had 61% of possession but only managed two shots on target at Goodison Park, one in each half. 

They did have 15 shots at goal but, before people start talking about a fake result, Everton managed 14, with nine on target.

Player reaction

Everton 3-1 Chelsea

Everton forward Steven Naismith, speaking to BT Sport: “There was some interest in me on transfer deadline day and it’s always hard when you’re not playing but the manager decided he wanted to keep me. Hopefully I showed my worth today.”

Everton defender Phil Jagielka, speaking to BT Sport: “John Stones has been supreme all season. There has been a lot of talk about him but all the players have backed him. He’s been playing really well and that shows what kind of character he is.”

"Jose is under real, real pressure"

"That result was very unlike Chelsea. Jose won't be going anywhere, but you cannot afford to start the Premier League sluggishly and they have done. They are treading water, or really going backwards. 

"This is the first time in his Chelsea career that he has been under real, real pressure."

Everton 3-1 Chelsea

So, Everton are up to third, for a couple of hours at least, after that win. Chelsea drop two places to 15th and could in theory drop lower. The champions could also find themselves 11 points behind Manchester City if the leaders beat Crystal Palace.

"What a terrific show by Steven Naismith. He will long remember the day he got three against the champions. And John Stones' performance says so much about his maturity. 

"Chelsea don't look like their former selves. They were very thin until Nemanja Matic's goal. Jose Mourinho really has to sort this one out very quickly. His first priority? Defence."

FULL-TIME

Everton 3-1 Chelsea

Chelsea lost three times in the Premier League in the whole of last season. They have now lost three of their first five games of this campaign.

Everton 3-1 Chelsea

Everton's hat-trick hero Steven Naismith is lucky to avoid a more serious injury after Asmir Begovic comes off his line to collect a high ball into the box. Only seconds left...

YELLOW CARD

Diego Costa gets his name in Andre Marriner's book, bringing down Ramiro Funes Mori to end a promising run from the Everton new-boy.

"Chelsea had all the momentum since the beginning of the second half but the point is basically this: the end product is not there. 

"And more than that, their defence, normally so reliable, is leaking goals. That is why they went for John Stones."

INJURY TIME

Everton 3-1 Chelsea

There will be four minutes of stoppage time at Goodison Park before Chelsea's worst start to a top-flight season since 1986 is confirmed.

Everton 3-1 Chelsea

Willian just pings a 40-yard pass straight out of play as he tries to find Eden Hazard. That sort of sums up the way things have gone in attack for Chelsea today. As for their defence... that's been even worse.

YELLOW CARD

Everton 3-1 Chelsea

Another yellow card for Andre Marriner to dish out as Cesar Azpilicueta sends Aaron Lennon tumbling. No sign of a late Chelsea fightback - that third goal has finished them off.

YELLOW CARD

Everton 3-1 Chelsea

John Stones has hardly put a foot wrong in the Everton defence today but he just blotted his copy-book slightly after being shown a yellow card for kicking the ball away as Chelsea try to take a quick free-kick. The home fans react with another chorus of "money can't buy you Stones."

Everton 3-1 Chelsea

The Everton fans are chanting "Going down" at their Chelsea counterparts and "You're getting sacked in the morning" at Jose Mourinho. I don't think he can claim this defeat is another "fake result" either.

"What a substitute eh? Everton's best move of the finish half, in fact their only real move of the second half, is finished by Steven Naismith.

"Asmir Begovic was a bit too eager coming out towards the edge of his six-yard box, and Naismith, coming in on the angle, hits it home. Hat-trick. The second half has belonged to Chelsea but that should win Everton the points."

GOAL - Everton 3-1 Chelsea

Steven Naismith (82 min - Hat-trick)

Amazing scenes, especially for Steven John Naismith. Ross Barkley is at the heart of things for this goal, driving at the Chelsea defence, but it is Naismith who finishes things off, picking up Barkley's precise pass, taking a touch and sliding the ball past Asmir Begovic to complete his hat-trick. Game over? It looks that way.

Everton 2-1 Chelsea

Chelsea are running into a line of Everton defenders every time they get near the edge of the Everton box. The visitors keep forcing corners - surely one of them will lead to something?

Everton 2-1 Chelsea

Chelsea are about to take their 13th corner of the game, once Diego Costa gets the ball from the crowd that is. Willian hoists it into the box but Steven Naismith nods clear.

"With these changes Jose Mourinho really is looking for Chelsea to stretch the game.

"Radamel Falcao is up there, young Kenedy is out on the right hand side, Willian is back in too and all this should see Eden Hazard back into the thick of things as well. This is a really good watch now."

Everton 2-1 Chelsea

This rash of changes continues. Seamus Coleman tweaked something a few moments ago so £9.5m new-boy Ramiro Funes Mori will replace him for the last few minutes. Everton are going to have to reshuffle at the back, though.

Everton 2-1 Chelsea

There was a fair bit of pressure on John Stones today, given he was up against the team who tried to sign him, but he has been class personified in the Everton backline again and again. Cool, composed and rock solid. No wonder Jose Mourinho was so desperate to buy him.

"Why didn't he shoot? Diego Costa has only got one to his name so far this season. It's the confidence factor (see 71 mins).

"That was a big chance for Chelsea. Branislav Ivanovic did really well."

SUBSTITUTION

Everton 2-1 Chelsea

Here comes that Everton change. Aaron Lennon is now a permanent Toffees player, rather than a loan one, and he is on for his first appearance in a blue shirt since his move from Tottenham.

Everton 2-1 Chelsea

Radamel Falcao's first touch is a good one, finding Branislav Ivanovic with a delicious pass as Chelsea break quickly. He plays in Diego Costa on the left of the area but the Spaniard chooses to cut inside rather than let fly and runs into trouble. He is crowded out before he can get a shot away.

"The home crowd are livening up a bit now. Romelu Lukaku is always a threat - his shot was saved by Asmir Begovic - yet another stop - but this is a good spell for Everton."

SUBSTITUTION

Everton 2-1 Chelsea

Changes afoot for both teams. First for Chelsea - Radamel Falcao is coming on, replacing Pedro. 

Everton 2-1 Chelsea

Everton want a free-kick when Branislav Ivanovic sends Steven Naismith tumbling but they have to settle for a corner. Chelsea clear but the home side keep the pressure on and Asmir Begovic is forced into action to keep out Romelu Lukaku's skidding low shot.

YELLOW CARD

Everton 2-1 Chelsea

A crunching challenge by Brendan Galloway stops Pedro in his tracks but referee Andre Marriner lets play continue and the visitors' attack ends with Tim Howard charging off his line to punch a Diego Costa cross clear.

Marriner books Galloway for that earlier foul - the first yellow card of the game - before the corner can be taken but a good spell of Chelsea pressure ends when Pedro fouls Steven Naismith.

Everton 2-1 Chelsea

These are only half-chances for Everton but they are more than Chelsea can muster at the moment. We are more than an hour in and still just the one shot on target so far by Jose Mourinho's men.

Everton 2-1 Chelsea

Another Everton half-chance. Romelu Lukaku seems keen to bag against his former club, letting fly from an impossible angle on the right of the area and finding the side rather than the back of the net.

Everton 2-1 Chelsea

Yep, Chelsea are less than convincing at the back at the moment - this time Romelu Lukaku charges through but sees his shot blocked by Asmir Begovic.

The visitors get a bit lucky when John Terry taps the loose ball back into the hands of his keeper with Lukaku looking to gobble it up. That should be an indirect free-kick about 10 yards from goal but instead play continues.

Everton 2-1 Chelsea

Everton have not done much attacking of late but they seem to fancy their chances against this Chelsea defence when they do come forward. Ross Barkley tries to wriggle his way through and evades a couple of challenges before running into the human roadblock that is Nemanja Matic. End of run.

Everton 2-1 Chelsea

Chelsea have had 74% of possession in the second half but are yet to pose a serious threat. Time for an attacking change by Jose Mourinho - Kenedy on for John Obi-Mikel.
