Chelsea rattled in two first half goals against Everton, and the first was particularly impressive.
It was a lovely take, turn and shoot from Mason Mount at the end of it, but before then the move had built up smoothly from the back, involving left back, right back, both centre backs, midfield interplay, then the move unfolding down the left with Pedro and Mount interchanging rapidly.
There were 20 passes in the buildup, according to OPTA, the second longest chain we’ve had in the buildup to any goal this season.
