Chelsea moved seven points ahead of Tottenham, which was hosting Arsenal later Sunday.
A sustained period of Chelsea pressure pushed Everton deep into their own penalty area and when the ball was worked to Pedro, the Spanish winger uncorked a fierce 20-yard strike that flashed into the roof of the net for his first goal since February.
A brilliant strike from Pedro in the 66th minute broke the deadlock and then goals from skipper Gary Cahill and substitute Willian made sure of the three points for Antonio Conte's side.
"To be above Arsenal for the first time in 22 years is fantastic for our fans.it is fantastic for us too, but we want to win the title".

Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur continued their fight for the English Premier League (EPL) football title, while Manchester City and Manchester United played respective draws here on Sunday. After that it makes it more hard to create really open chances and if they get a little bit more space they are a team who will kill the game. "We are exhausted", United manager Jose Mourinho said.
