For the second consecutive match to open their season, Everton let a lead slip away and had to settle for a draw, the one today with Arsenal being particularly heartbreaking as the two sides finish 2-2.
For about the first 75-80 minutes of this one, everything was going swimmingly for the Toffees. Seamus Coleman picked up where he left off last season, opening his account for Everton's first goal when he collected a lovely lob pass into the area from Gareth Barry and finished easily. Then, just before halftime, the Toffees were on the break with loads of space. It was Steven Naismith, the beneficiary of a blown offsides call, who split the defense and scored his second goal in as many games. With Ross Barkley reportedly at least a month away from returning, Naismith appears to have secured himself a spot in the XI and is beginning to raise a few eyebrows in the fantasy community. His classification as a forward makes it hard to prefer him to others at his position, but with a current (and I mean current as of this very second) price of 7.59m, he at least needs to enter one's thinking in plus matchups.

After a goalless first half, Everton and Fulham found their attacking feet in the second, combining for four goals, all from substitutes, but it was the Toffees who got the better of it in a 1-3 win.

A calf injury to Ross Barkley was the unexpected catalyst to get the action started, as Steven Naismith enjoyed 45 minutes of some of the best football of his life. The opening goal went as an own goal for Fulham keeper David Stockdale, but it came from a Naismith strike. Kevin Mirallas would regain the lead for Everton after the Cottagers leveled, scoring from the bench himself. Then, in the closing minutes, Leighton Baines fed Naismith for the only goal he would be credited for, but he was all over the place and could have finished with a hat trick, if not more.

On his 27th birthday, Steven Naismith celebrated in style, grabbing the only goal Everton would need to defeat Chelsea 1-0 in a thriller at Goodison Park.

It was an outstanding performance from Roberto Martinez's side, particularly by newcomer Gareth Barry, who dictated the flow of the game and helped the Toffees win the battle in the middle third. Naismith's goal was lucky as it came from a header with seconds left in added time at the end of the first half, but Everton deserved the three points regardless. They stand with Merseyside rivals Liverpool as the two remaining unbeaten clubs.
