    LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — Jorginho’s late first-half penalty was enough to give Chelsea a 1-0 victory over Everton in the English Premier League on Saturday for the London club’s first win at Goodison Park in five visits. It was far from a convincing performance from Thomas Tuchel’s team, though, against an Everton side that was playing without a recognized striker and lost two players to injuries. Ben Godfrey was carried off on a stretcher early in the first half and taken to hospital with a serious-looking lower leg injury, while center back Yerry Mina also exited in the second half. Godfrey’s injury meant there was eight minutes of stoppage time in the first half, and Jorginho converted a penalty seconds before the interval after Abdoulaye Doucoure pulled down Ben Chilwell. Everton created more pressure in the second half but never looked close to getting an equalizer and coach Frank Lampard — the former Chelsea midfielder and manager — will have to find a solution to the team’s attacking problems.

    LONDON (AP) — Arsenal finished the season with a 5-1 win over Everton on Sunday but it wasn’t enough to dislodge archrival Tottenham from fourth place in the Premier League. Arsenal had to settle for fifth place — and Europa League football next season — after Tottenham grabbed the last Champions League spot with a 5-0 win at Norwich on the final day of the campaign. It made for a bittersweet finale for the Gunners, who had a firm grip on fourth place just 10 days ago, before consecutive losses at Tottenham and Newcastle handed the advantage to Spurs. Arsenal, which hasn’t qualified for the Champions League since 2016 after 19 straight seasons in Europe’s top competition under Arsene Wenger, finished two points behind Tottenham — having been four points ahead before a 3-0 defeat in the north London derby on May 12. Gabriel Martinelli and Eddie Nketiah put Arsenal 2-0 up after 31 minutes at the Emirates Stadium before Donny van de Beek pulled a goal back for Everton just before the halftime break.

    LEICESTER, England (AP) — Everton held on for a 2-1 victory over Leicester in the Premier League on Sunday that gave the team renewed hope of avoiding relegation. The win moves Everton up to 16th in the table with 35 points, one more than Burnley and Leeds and still with a game in hand over its relegation rivals. Leeds dropped into the relegation zone after losing 2-1 at Arsenal. Vitalii Mykolenko’s volley from the edge of the area put Everton in front but Leicester leveled in the 11th minute after poor defending. Yerry Mina and Seamus Coleman went up for a header, only to collide and allow Patson Daka to run through and beat goalkeeper Jordan Pickford. Everton regained the lead on the half hour when Mason Holgate nodded in after goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel had saved Richarlison’s header. Leicester dominated much of the second half but came up short against Pickford, who managed to protect the lead by turning away multiple scoring opportunities. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/hub/soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.

    LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — Everton gained a huge win in its fight for survival and further damaged Manchester United’s flimsy top-four hopes with a 1-0 victory in the Premier League on Saturday. Anthony Gordon’s shot from the edge of the penalty area deflected into the net off the outstretched leg of United defender Harry Maguire in the 27th minute at Goodison Park. It was another lackluster performance by United, which brought two great saves out of Jordan Pickford — both from efforts by Marcus Rashford — early in the match and was frustrated by some obdurate and at times desperate defending by Everton in the second half. Whoever is hired as the full-time replacement for interim manager Ralf Rangnick — Ajax’s Erik ten Hag looks to be the favorite for the job — is set to arrive at Old Trafford with United out of the Champions League and potentially not in any European competition.

    LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — Alex Iwobi’s goal in the ninth minute of stoppage time gave 10-man Everton a 1-0 victory over Newcastle on Thursday that ended a four-game losing streak in the Premier League and boosted the club’s hopes of avoiding a relegation scrap. Everton’s recent run of poor form had seen it drop to just above the relegation zone when Brazilian midfielder Allan was sent off in the 83rd minute, it seemed a point was the best Frank Lampard’s team could hope for. But with 14 minutes of added time due to the incursion of a protester who tied himself to a goalpost and the VAR check for Allan’s dismissal, Iwobi finished off a quick attack with one of Everton’s most important goals of the season. It was only Everton’s third top-flight win since September, but it now has a three-point gap to 18th-place Watford with two matchers in hand. It was also just the team’s second clean sheet since November. For Newcastle, it was a second straight loss after an eight-game unbeaten run...

The Brazilian midfielder wiped out Allan Saint-Maximin as the Newcastle danger man launched a counter attack. His tackle initially got a yellow card from Craig Pawson but after a VAR review he was instructed to go and watch the replays on the monitor. And Lampard - who felt his side should have had a penalty moments earlier - was absolutely furious with the decision. But the lengthy check - plus an eight-minute delay after a protestor tied his neck to...

    EVERTON fans are facing up to their worst nightmare when champions Manchester City come to Goodison on Saturday evening. Defeat against Pep Guardiola’s men could see the Toffees slump into the relegation zone by the full-time whistle if results elsewhere go against them. 3Frank Lampard's Everton host Man City on Saturday evening in desperate need of a winCredit: Getty But a win – and boy do they need it right now - would hand their neighbours and bitter rivals Liverpool the clear advantage in the Prem title race. Relegation is unthinkable for Everton - but the thought of the Reds parading their silverware through the streets is difficult to stomach too. Frank Lampard’s men have had the week off since their defeat at Southampton - but even so it has been an uncomfortable one for the blue half of Merseyside. Burnley’s surprise win over Tottenham – on the back of their victory at Brighton – means they are now in 18th place and just two points behind Everton.

    SOUTHAMPTON, England (AP) — Stuart Armstrong and Shane Long struck rare Premier League goals as Southampton overwhelmed Everton in a 2-0 win on the south coast on Saturday. If Armstrong was ecstatic to end a drought running from April 4 last year, Long stepped off the bench to top that sense of relief with his first touch. The Ireland striker’s last league goal for Saints came in a 2-0 win over Aston Villa on Feb. 22, 2020. Just as Saints’ goalscorers are enjoying a resurgence, so too is Ralph Hasenhuttl’s team. Southampton extended its recent fine run to just one defeat in 11 matches in all competitions with another impressive showing. Southampton dominated in every area of the field as James Ward-Prowse and Oriol Romeu’s mix of industry and ingenuity buffeted Everton off its stride, Kyle Walker-Peters dominated the left flank and Armando Broja was unfortunate to end the day without a goal. The win cemented Saints in 10th spot and left Frank Lampard’s Everton floundering in 16th, puncturing the optimism generated by a 3-0 home win over Leeds on...
    NEWCASTLE, England (AP) — Kieran Trippier scored off a dipping free kick to cap Newcastle’s 3-1 win over Everton that lifted his team out of the bottom three and pulled the beaten visitors closer to the relegation mire in the Premier League on Tuesday. The England right back, one of five new signings for the Saudi-owned club in the January transfer window, completed Newcastle’s comeback in the 80th minute at St. James’ Park in just the team’s third victory of the season. Everton, playing its first league game under Frank Lampard, took the lead through Jamaal Lascelles’ own-goal — only to concede barely a minute later when Mason Holgate put the ball into his own net, too. Newcastle went in front for the first time through Ryan Fraser’s close-range finish in the 56th before Trippier’s crowning goal. In jumping out of the relegation zone, Newcastle moved within a point of Everton, which is only three points above the bottom three. Two high-profile players signed on transfer deadline day last month — midfielders Dele Alli and Donny van de Beek —...
    PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN and Everton are threatening to wreck Newcastle’s hopes of signing Dele Alli.

Alli would also prefer linking up with his old Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino in the French capital - although it is thought ex-Liverpool star Wijnaldum is not enthusiastic about this proposed return to the Premier League. Everton are also eyeing a shock swoop for Alli after owner Farhad Moshiri boosted their coffers with a further £100m investment this week. But the Toffees currently being without a manager could put Alli off a permanent switch to Goodison Park. The England 2018 World Cup ace looks certain to leave Spurs after not even being named on the bench for their 2-0 defeat at Chelsea on Sunday.

    LIVERPOOL legend Jamie Carragher was quick to take to social media to make light of Rafa Benitez's sacking at Everton.

The Magpies were said to have won the race to add the left-back and compliment recent signing, Kieran Trippier, on the right hand side of their defence. Chelsea were hoping to snag the French full-back amid their injury crises. Digne would have been replacing a crocked Ben Chilwell, who will be out for the remainder of this season.

    CHELSEA have reportedly cast their eyes at Lucas Digne as one option to replace the crocked Ben Chilwell. The Blues lost their star left-back to a serious knee injury that will likely keep him out for the rest of the season. 2Lucas Digne has fallen out of favour at Goodison ParkCredit: Getty 2Ben Chilwell is set to miss the rest of the season with a knee injuryCredit: Reuters The 25-year-old is set to undergo surgery on the ACL he damaged during the Champions League victory over Juventus last month.

    NICOLAS PEPE’S future at Arsenal is looking increasingly uncertain after the latest snub by boss Mikel Arteta. The Gunners' £72million record signing was an unused substitute for the 2-1 defeat at Everton on Monday night. 3Arsenal winger Nicolas Pepe has been an unused substitute in the last five Premier League gamesCredit: Getty 3Gunners striker Eddie Nketiah came on for Gabriel Martinelli against Everton ahead of NketiahCredit: Getty Most fans expected him to step in when Gabriel Martinelli went down with a hamstring problem with 19 minutes remaining. But instead Arteta turned to youngster Eddie Nketiah – who looks certain to leave the Emirates in the summer after turning down a new contract. The decision could have paid off as the England youth international wasted a golden chance to restore Arsenal’s lead – heading a point blank header against the post. But it leaves questions over where Ivory Coast star Pepe is in the pecking order – as he has not featured at all since October 30. And even in that game against Leicester he was limited to just five minutes...
