Blues are held by Toffees in home stalemate (0-0)

Chelsea endured an afternoon of frustration at Stamford Bridge against a dogged and well-organised Everton.

The Blues dominated for long periods of the second half with Eden Hazard, Willian and Marcos Alonso all going close to breaking the deadlock, but were left to settle for a point that maintains our unbeaten start to the campaign and makes Maurizio Sarri the first Premier League coach not to lose a match in his opening 12 games.

Pedro played the final stage of the game (68’) after a 90-minute performance in mid-week Europa League win away to BATE.

On Sunday evening the home side was unable to find a goal to win the game despite it was a good performance by the team with several opportunities to break the deadlock. Alonso clipped the outside of the post while Hazard and Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford seemed locked in a personal battle for parts of the second half, and Alvaro Morata had an effort chalked off for offside.

Credit should go to the visitors too, who provided stern opposition and threatened on occasion themselves.
