Against Everton, Chelsea’s performance didn’t quite live up to expectations.

They huffed, and they puffed but they couldn’t quite blow the Everton defensive house down.

Whereas, on Thursday night against Bate Borisov in Belarus, the woodwork had come to Chelsea’s rescue, against Everton it was to thwart us on this occasion with a shot from Marcus Alonso only being kept out by the upright.

On other occasions, Chelsea may play worse and win, such is life when it comes to this sport of ours.

However, the 0-0 draw sees Chelsea remain unbeaten this season and in touch with the leading duo of Manchester City and Liverpool, although dropping two home points, against Everton, has seen the gap between ourselves and City extend to four points.

But, perhaps, the one point we should emphasise regarding the draw against Everton is that Maurizio Sarri has put his name in the record books.

In starting the season with a twelve-game unbeaten run, Sarri has beaten the long-standing record of eleven games held by the former Nottingham Forest boss, Frank Clark, a record that has stood since 1994.

Our congratulations go to Maurizio on a fine achievement.

  • sarri deserves all the accolade bcos since his introduction as Chelsea coach this season, he has tirn Chelsea team into a good style football play.Also known as “sarri ball”.
    up sarri! up Chelsea.

  • But the last two games have not been encouraging, players have shown signs of old habits. I hope am wrong.

  • i would say he and the players have exceeded expectation at this moment,but most matches were won either by luck or by moment of brilliance from certain players.the only thing i see now is improved percentage of possession of the ball,i know this is still the primary stage of the system but when jungle should mature,i strongly expect some casualties where it concerns some players, some are not confortable with the ball in tight areas,like kante,willian,morata,azpi,even alonso using his pace, so i hope the players would buckle up more,however congrats to sarri.

  • congrats to sarri and the players,but the matches were mostly won by either luck or moment of brilliance from certain players,at this stage,i can only see an improved percentage of ball possession,though some players are still uncomfortable with the ball in tight areas as the system demands,so to take the team and system to another level,there must be casualties to the current first 11. i hope they all keep improving.

  • Sure we blues have change from the formar style succefully and we also won our matches diligently but also need to improve much on the percentage of our striking. While because, now a day strikers put more emphasis on winning against opponants but ours are not.
    Anyway CONGRATULATUONS to SARRI and his TEAM
