Tuchel will be pleased with how his side have played so far, especially with how they’ve limited Everton’s attack. They’ll need to be more clinical in the second half though. As for Everton, they’ve done well defensively, but they have to find a way to get their forward players into the game more, even if it means taking more risks.
Godfrey’s own goal separates Chelsea and Everton at the break. Chelsea dominated possession throughout the first half and it was Alonso’s cross that caused the visitors a problem. Havertz flicked it on at the near post, only for it to hit Godfrey which took it over the line. Pickford then made a great save to tip Alonso’s shot wide of the near post, while Everton haven’t really troubled the hosts at the other end.
