Chelsea beat Everton 3-1 in the Premier League on Saturday for its first win over David Moyes' team since the 2009 FA Cup final.

In a mostly dour game, Daniel Sturridge set the hosts on their way when he tapped in Ashley Cole's first-time cross from the left in the 31st minute.

Captain John Terry took advantage of a mistake by American goalkeeper Tim Howard to make it 2-0 on the stroke of halftime before Ramires all but sealed the win by converting Juan Mata's cross in the 61st.

Apostolos Vellios grabbed a consolation goal for Everton in the 81st only seconds after coming as a substitute.

Chelsea, which ended a six-game winless run against Everton, stayed third in the standings, three points behind leader Manchester City.
