Add David Moyes to the club of managers who have won 300 Premiership matches. It was also his very first win over Chelsea. Landon Donovan continues to impress with his form at Everton. The US will be happy with their chief playmaker getting such invaluable experience which should stand them in good against England in the World Cup. And Moyes will also be particularly pleased with his decision to bring Donovan to Goodison Park.
John Terry looked unfocused and was partially responsible for both of Saha’s goals. First failing to stop Saha’s nicely timed run to the near post to head the ball home from a Donovan’s corner. The winner came when a slack Terry missed the flight of Sylvan Distin’s lofted long ball completely with Saha coming up with it and slamming the ball past Petr Cech.
Saha could have had a hattrick but he failed to put away a penalty awarded when Ricardo Carvalho brought down Landon Donovan.
