Chelsea held in check by Everton

They cracked in the very last minutes. As they headed for a fourth straight win in all competitions, Chelsea players conceded a 2-2 draw this Saturday at home against Everton. Graham Potter players can harbor regrets: they led twice in this game and were caught each time.

After a scoreless first half, Joao Felix gave the Blues a first advantage by scoring in the 52nd minute. The visitors equalized through Abdoulaye Doucouré, who scored with a header, following a corner (69th, 1-1). Mowed down by Tarkowski in the area, Reece James offered a penalty to his team which Kyle Havertz (76th, 2-1) was responsible for transforming. The Londoners probably thought they had done the hardest part, but Ellis Sims dropped off Kalidou Koulibaly to equalize again for the Toffees, who had the merit of never giving up (89th, 2-2).

This result obviously does not suit Chelsea, still stuck in the soft underbelly of the Championship while Everton temporarily rises to 15th place, moving away from the red zone.
