John Terry scored two goals on a day that the two sides, his Chelsea team and Everton will be grateful for.

His 50 minute own goal, gave Everton the lead at the Stamford Bridge in their 3-3 drawn league match on Saturday which was followed by a controversial 98th minute equaliser to earn Chelsea a point.

The Toffees, again extended their lead with a Kevin Mirallas left footed shot from the centre of the box from a Leighton Baines assist.

Guus Hiddink’s men had to probe till the 63 minute when they got a relief from Cesc Fabregas’ initiative that saw him provide an assist to his Spaniard compatriot, Diego Costa to send a right footed kick home. Costa comfortably rounded Howard to make it 2-1 after Phil Jagielka failed to deal with a long ball forward by Fabregas.

Everton would have to lay the blame at their defensemen who looked lethargic and were caught ball watching on most occasions. One such moment gave Chelsea the equalizer through a Cesc Fabregas deflected goal three minutes after their first; it was a Costa provider to put it at 2-2.

Chelsea led in ball possession and looked like finding the needed winning goal when Ramiro Funes Mori restored Everton's lead in the 90th minute from Deulofeu assist that followed a corner kick.

John Terry took advantage of a goal area scramble to send in a back-heel from close range from an offside position which saw the Everton players protest vehemently.
