Hasselbaink off as Chelsea surrender
Campbell scored winner after defensive error
Everton 2-1 Chelsea

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was sent off for violent conduct as Chelsea continued their bad run of away form with another defeat at Everton.

Goals from Danny Cadamarteri and Kevin Campbell condemned Chelsea to their fifth away loss of the season and continued Everton's own impressive run of form with a third consecutive win.

Chelsea have now failed to win on their travels for eight matches and have not won away from Stamford Bridge all season.

A lacklustre match burst into life in the second half with two Everton goals and Hasselbaink's sending off following Chelsea's opener in first-half injury time.

If you do not maintain discipline on the field you end up with a man off, and you can't play with one less
  Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri
Everton had just equalised, with Cadamarteri slotting home from a fine Scot Gemmill through ball when Hasselbaink clashed with Michael Ball.


The Chelsea striker appeared to elbow Ball in the face and the referee brandished the red card after consulting with his linesman.

But the game hinged on a frenetic opening five minutes of the second half when Chelsea's Eidur Gudjohnsen, playing in the place of the departed Tore Andre Flo, hit the post.

Chelsea insist new boss Ranieri is not under pressure yet
Everton went straight up the other end of the pitch to score the equalising goal.

Minutes after Hasselbaink's dismissal Campbell capitalised on a defensive mix up following a hopeful ball pumped into the area to hit the winner.

The two teams had plenty to be nervous about before the game with Everton missing a clutch of injured players and Chelsea's poor travelling form, and they showed it in the first half.

Little excitement

The opening 45 minutes provided little in the way of excitement with Chelsea's Sam Dalla Bona heading just over the bar and Everton's Scot Gemmill scuffing a shot in the six yard area.

With the injury list we hae, who would have thought we would have won these two games against Arsenal and Chelsea?
  Everton manager Walter Smith

But Chelsea unexpectedly took the lead in the dying seconds when Dalla Bona picked up a corner clearance and crisply struck a 25-yard volley home.

The Italy under-18 captain had his first shot blocked but made no mistake with his second bite of the cherry.

But Everton seemed to be stunned into action after falling behind and emerged after half-time a different team to take the game to Chelsea and win all three points.
