Chelsea pay the price for set-play horrors

Published Add your comment

Chelsea's dreadful defending from set-pieces allowed Everton to grab a point in a 3-3 draw at Stamford Bridge.

An own-goal from Petr Cech put Everton in front in the 12th minute but goals from Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka gave Chelsea the edge before Yakubu levelled in first-half injury-time.

Drogba restored Chelsea's lead in the 58th minute but Saha scored a lucky equaliser as Carlo Ancelotti's side again failed to deal with a free-kick.
