    After Mason Mount’s strike hit the post, England’s first-choice goalkeeper recovered to save Cesar Azpilicueta’s strike.

    Pickford then made another outstanding stop from Antonio Rudiger a few moments later.

    Below is a video of a heroic save.

    That is one of the most impressive Premier League saves in recent memory!

    What role might that save play in the team’s fight to stay out of the relegation zone?

    Against Thomas Tuchel’s side, Everton took a surprising lead just after half-time through Richarlison, who had started the afternoon five points from safety in 18th position.

    What is Pickford’s record in the upcoming season of 2021-22?

    Pickford came into Sunday’s match against Chelsea with only five clean sheets to his name in 30 Premier League games to his credit.

    He was, on the other hand, acutely aware of how crucial it would be for Everton to keep the top-four hopes at bay on their own turf.

    Toffees supporters were out in force before kick-off outside Goodison Park, with the goal of inspiring those taking to the field on the day in question.

    Following a mistake by Azpilicueta, Richarlison put Everton ahead against Chelsea early in the second half, before Jordan Pickford added to the frustration by confounding Thomas Tuchel’s team at the other end of the field.

    Even though Everton needed to hold on for the final seven minutes of stoppage time, they were able to do so and cut the gap between themselves and 17th-placed Leeds United to just two points.

    With the win, Chelsea moved into third position, five points ahead of Tottenham Hotspur and six points ahead of Arsenal, who still have a game in hand.
