Everton 2-0 West Ham United 

Everton took all three points in front of their home crowd at the Goodison Park last night in the Premier League. The Toffees are attempting to keep the gap close between them and the top 5 teams in the league table and they were on that direction when Romelu Lukaku scored his milestone 50th goal in the league for Everton in the 50th minute of the game when the West Ham keeper only managed to parry Seamus Coleman's long range effort which was chased down by Bolasie as he crossed the ball back in the waiting head of Lukaku which he nods softly on the open goal. Then in the 76th minute Ross Barkley put the game away when he scored the goal after a great cross in the box by Lukaku. 

Southampton 0-2 Chelsea

Since Chelsea 3-0 defeat to Arsenal on Matchweek 6 of the Premier League, The Blues have since won three in a row without conceding a goal in the process, among those victories were the 3-0 victory over the defending champions Leicester City and a 4-0 win over Manchester United. After their last defeat to Arsenal, Antonio Conte switched to three defenders at the back and the change in the formation so far has been a success, last night they extended their winning streak to 4 games and once again without conceding a goal. Chelsea already in front after just 6 minutes when Eden Hazard scored a goal after some beautiful dribbling to get away from the defender inside the box. Then in the 55th minute Costa doubled his side lead when he scored a fantastic curling ball outside the box which left the keeper no chance.
