Pedro, Gary Cahill and Willian goals keep Chelsea in control of the Premier League

Premier League leaders Chelsea took a big step towards winning the title as three second-half goals saw them thrashed Everton at Goodison Park.

Pedro's 25-yard impressive strike, Gary Cahill's close-range finish and Willian's tap-in kept Antonio Conte's men four points clear of second-placed Tottenham, who beat Arsenal 2-0 later on Sunday.

It means Chelsea could drop three points in their remaining four games and still claim a second title in three years, even if Spurs win all of their remaining fixtures.

Chelsea had to be patient, with Pedro's left-footed, long-range strike not coming until the 66th minute.

Cahill sealed the win when Maarten Stekelenburg parried Eden Hazard's free-kick onto the onrushing defender, before Willian slotted home from Cesc Fabregas' cutback.
