Many thought that Chelsea would drop points against Everton, but it wasn’t to be.

The Blues were reminded of Everton’s home record this season times without number before the game; they had lost only once at home this season and were on an eight game winning streak prior to the Chelsea game.

Chelsea defeated them 3-0 on their own turf, and Cesar Azpilicueta has revealed that the team prepared really well for the game.

“We prepared well, we knew it would be difficult and we were mentally ready,” said the Spaniard.

“Even after the first half, which was 50-50, we were able to play a great second half. It was an amazing goal from Pedro and after that it became a bit easier.”
