|TERRY RATING VS EVERTON
The Chelsea captain returned from injury to replace David Luiz and showed true leadership by popping up in added time to help bundle the ball over the line following Lampard's free-kick.
Chelsea captain John Terry has confirmed his eagerness to sign a new contract with the Premier League leader.
Terry was involved in late drama at Stamford Bridge on Saturday as Chelsea claimed a precious 1-0 win over Everton.
The fit-again center half challenged Tim Howard from a late Frank Lampard free kick and saw the ball find the net, with confusion surrounding who actually got the goal.
Terry, whose current contract expires at the end of the season, subsequently confirmed he is keen to remain with the club he first represented in 1998.
"I certainly hope I can stay. You'll have to ask the club that question - I can't answer for them," the 33-year-old told BT Sport.
Meanwhile, the Chelsea skipper was under no illusions as to how important the winning goal was against Roberto Martinez's men.
"Recently dropping points away to West Brom, it's important to pick up three points at home," he said.
"We're top of the league and sitting well. It's down to the others now to catch us.
"[It was a] great ball from Lamps, [I] just managed to get a touch on it and I think it came off Howard in the end as well but [I'm] delighted with the win and the three points.
"They made it quite difficult but they're a very good side and playing well under Martinez and it was a tough game today."
