Chelsea beats Everton to close in on Premier League title
LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — Pedro Rodriguez scored an eye-catching long-range goal as Chelsea closed in on the Premier League title by beating Everton 3-0 on Sunday.
Antonio Conte will be guaranteed the trophy in his first season in charge of Chelsea if the leaders win three of their last four games.
Everton's eight-match winning run at Goodison Park ended after Pedro broke through the home resistance with his 25-yard (meter) strike in the 66th minute. Defender Gary Cahill and midfielder Willian also scored as Chelsea looks to regain the trophy from Leicester.
Chelsea moved seven points ahead of Tottenham, which was hosting Arsenal later Sunday. Europa League-chasing Everton is seventh.
