98 min goal. Terry.
They were absolutely woeful against us, it's laughable that some people thought they'd hit title winning form under Hiddink.
Best second half I've witnessed all season.
Bumping this before the final whistle. That offside goal is basically entirely your fault.
Terry was a yard offside for their 3rd goal
Somewhat saved us, Everton would have been 2 or 3 points behind us if they won.
discounting todays game, it's worrying that we have the same points as them in the last 10 games.
After being given an extra minute by the ref.
The extra time was so long, it was only fair that it get its own extra time.
We have one win in eight.
3 wins in ten.
Just trying to explain that our form in the last ten games is relegation standard.
Everton's goal fell at 90:00 and the game resumed at 91:20 again. So actually the ref was in his right to let the extra time go on another minute
I know...that was my point.
Get a room, you two.
Two home draws for Chelsea in a row. Away to Arsenal and Watford next. Amazingly Watford are four points ahead of them at the moment with a game in hand.
For Chelsea to finish on 70 points (standard top four finish total, though it may be lower this year) they need 45 points from 16 games - 2.81 PPG. Not going to happen.
For them to finish on 62 points and beat Blackburn's 61 from the 1995/96 season (which I believe is the worst title defence in the Premier League) they would need 37 points from 16 games - 2.31 PPG. That form over a 38 game season would accumulate 87 points.
Interesting post. Good insight, thanks.
I suppose they could just use Liverpool's 'next year is..' logic to get over just how bad this season is for them.

Good post. Not wanting to sound too negative about our situation if we won every home game and drew every away game remaining we would finish the season on 69 points (1 less than last season). Doesn't look good does it.
A bad game salvaged into a decent result. The second half was great end to end stuff.
That's really a moot point given the blatant offside for the last goal
At least he gives more interviews than Abramavich.
Referee's are incompetent. They are constantly fecking up every single game and are completely unaccountable for their incompetence, leading to a lower standard of refereeing. Sometimes Chelsea are helped by it, most of the time, they are not.
Martinez needs to wind his neck in considering his side got away with a clear foul on Sterling in the box mid week. Didn't see him getting irate about that decision.
The debate about added time has been done to death, the time shown is a minimum. 5 minutes added on allows upto 5:59 to be added. Everton scored so another minute was added. It's not controversial at all.
No, the referee can play on for as long as he wants so long as it is justified. If he adds on 5 minutes and then a player gets a bad injury within in the added on time and stays down for 10 minutes, then the referee should be playing on until about 105 minutes.
I alluded to that at the end of my post.
Oh OK, you mean before any other interruptions it's 5:59. Got you now.
That's not true actually. Howard Webb spoke about it the other week and said that the ref got it wrong by letting it run for 3 minutes and 40 seconds when it said 3 minutes on the board. The "minimum" element only refers to their ability to add on extra time if there's significant events (injuries, goals, an extended break in play for a foul) as you say. If nothing like that happens (and this includes if there's a number of throw-ins, free kicks etc. which eat up half that time) then the amount shown on the board should be seen as the maximum.
He didn't say that exactly but that was the jist. I thought it was weird and pretty stupid but I suspect he knows what he's talking about.
So you're saying, if a team is one-nil ahead, with three minutes added on, they can have a player go down injured and be subbed off, taking the whole of added time?
That's basically the opposite of what I said...
What if a team celebrates for 2 minutes?
Of course. Never claimed otherwise.
So that's two out of three...next up, fouls?
So the ref was right to add on the time.
But wrong to allow the goal.
