At this stage of the season, when you are so close to winning the Premier League title, getting the points on offer is far more important than the performance.

The 3-0 win, at Goodison Park, put the pressure back on Spurs and Chelsea know that if they win three out of their last four home games the title is theirs.

But there are no easy games in the Premier League, the game at home to Crystal Palace showed that.

After the fine win, Antonio Conte spoke to the media about the win and not getting ahead of ourselves, remarking,

‘A good win. Everton are a strong team and they prepared the game well, so we must be pleased. We had a lot of patience for the right moment to hit, and we deserved the win.

‘In this type of game it’s easy to lose your head, lose your balance. For this reason at half-time I told them to be calm and to stay in the game. We scored an amazing goal with Pedro, then the second and third, but it was not so easy. This gives us lots of confidence. Now it is important to prepare the final rush. If in the next game against Middlesbrough you don’t win you lose this victory. We must look step by step.’

So near yet still so far?
