Chelsea’s winning streak came to an end on Saturday as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Everton at Stamford Bridge. The Blues had the chance to move up in the Premier League table and close the gap on the top four, but they failed to capitalize on their opportunities and allowed Everton to snatch a dramatic point.
Chelsea took the lead twice through Joao Felix and Kai Havertz, but they were pegged back by Abdoulaye Doucoure and Ellis Simms, who scored his first Everton goal with a superb solo effort in the 89th minute.
The result left Chelsea 10th in the standings, while Everton moved two points clear of the relegation zone.
Lack of defensive solidity:
Chelsea have been praised for their improved defense under Graham Potter, but they showed some vulnerability against Everton’s set pieces and counter-attacks.
Lack of killer instinct:
Chelsea had more possession, shots and chances than Everton, but they could not convert them into more goals.
Lack of consistency:
Chelsea have shown glimpses of brilliance under Potter, but they have also been inconsistent and unpredictable.
Chelsea will hope to bounce back from this disappointing result when they face Real Madrid in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. They will also need to improve their form and performance in the league if they want to finish as high as possible.
