Chelsea fans react on Twitter to Lampard & Terry impact: 'This is what champions are made of'

Chelsea fans have reacted on Twitter to the late goal that gave them a 1-0 win over Everton.

Some victories are more important than others.  In truth they should not be. After all, every league win produces the same amount of points.  But there are those matches that turn tides, and that ultimately win titles.

Chelsea's 1-0 victory over Everton had Stamford Bridge may prove to be one of those matches, as a late Frank Lampard free-kick was deflected in off the visitors' goalkeeper Tim Howard.

Some people are crediting the American with an own-goal, while others are giving it to Lampard or John Terry, whose role in the strike cannot be underestimated as he put Howard under pressure.

But in truth it does not matter, with the three points proving the most important factor for a Blues side who know just how important every single point will be in arguably the tightest title race in Premier League history.

Everton had more possession (53% to Chelsea's 47%) but the hosts had far more chances, Jose Mourinho's men having 24 shots in total - although only seven of those were on target.

It took all three substitutes and a slice of luck to give Chelsea the win.  But it was also down to the experience and presence of Lampard and Terry; two men who have been praised following their latest rescue-act.
