Chelsea toiled all day at Goodison Park on Saturday but to no avail as the Blues could only get a draw from that game.
Thibaut Courtois believes Everton’s decision to park the bus with eight players behind the ball made it difficult for Chelsea to get a goal.
Courtois said: “They had eight or nine players in their box. We tried to move the ball and tried to find space because with the quality of Willian and Pedro and Eden, we tried to have the gaps to shoot. The only thing we could maybe have done more is more shots on target, try to shoot from distance rather than always a cross because we did not have the big guy up front in this game.
“When we lost against West Ham we did not have a good game. We started a bit slow and were not as strong as they were, and they won that game. Maybe against Everton if you were losing 1-0 early, maybe you could have the same difficult game so we were very concentrated in the beginning, trying all the game to keep the clean sheet which was a good thing about today, and we tried to score but we couldn’t.”
