Chelsea welcomed Everton at Stamford Bridge earlier this evening as they focused on earning maximum points at home in the Premier League. The Blues made a solid start to the game but were held to a scoreless draw at the half-time break.

Joao Felix finally broke the deadlock for the home team in the 52nd minute. However, Everton managed to equalise via Abdoulaye Doucoure’s effort in the 69th minute. Kai Havertz restored Chelsea’s lead from the penalty spot just seven minutes later. However, the Toffees refused to go down and scored the equaliser in the 89th minute when Ellis Simms found the back of the net. The contest ended with the Blues being held to a disappointing 2-2 draw in front of their home supporters.

Let’s take a look at how each Chelsea player fared during the match against the Toffees.

GK: Kepa Arrizabalaga – 6/10

The Spanish keeper made one good save in the game but conceded two goals in the second half.

CB: Wesley Fofana – 7/10

Fofana defended his penalty box really well and won his fair share of aerial duels.

CB: Kalidou Koulibaly – 6/10

Koulibaly struggled to prove his worth on the defensive end of the pitch.

CB: Benoit Badiashile – 6.5/10

He did his fair share of defending and was accurate with his passing as well.

RW: Reece James – 7.5/10

James caused a few headaches for the opposition defenders and was a strong presence in the air.

CM: Enzo Fernandez – 7/10

The Argentina international got stuck in with a few solid tackles and was lively on the ball as well.

CM: Mateo Kovacic – 6.5/10

He engineered a few decent chances for others around him and got replaced in the 80th minute.

LM: Ben Chilwell – 8/10

Chilwell managed to create a few inviting chances for his teammates and came back to defend as well when needed.

RW: Christian Pulisic – 6.5/10

He had a couple of bright moments in the final third but could last only 61 minutes.

ST: Kai Havertz – 8/10

The German talent was a constant menace in front of the Everton goal and kept his composure to score from the penalty spot in the 76th minute.

LW: Joao Felix – 7.5/10

Felix had a few bright moments in the game and scored the opening goal in the 52nd minute.


CM: Conor Gallagher – 6/10

He added some energy to Graham Potter’s midfield.

CM: Ruben Loftus-Cheek – N/A

Loftus-Cheek came on for the final few minutes of the game.

CM: Carney Chukwuemeka – N/A

He hardly had any time to make an impact.

CB: Trevoh Chalobah – N/A

Chalobah didn’t get enough minutes to warrant a rating.
