Chelsea went into the break level despite creating two clear-cut chances to score against Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte revealed after the game that he urged the players to remain calm and stay in the game.
“[It was] A good win,” Conte told Sky Sports.
“Everton are a strong team and they prepared the game well, so we must be pleased.
“We had a lot of patience for the right moment to hit, and we deserved the win.
“In this type of game it’s easy to lose your head, lose your balance. For this reason at half-time I told them to be calm and to stay in the game.
“We scored an amazing goal with Pedro, then the second and third, but it was not so easy. This gives us lots of confidence. Now it is important to prepare the final rush.”
