Chelsea are currently on a blip, as the Blues have gone from winning games with ease to grinding results and conceding easy goals.

Chelsea were expected to beat a weakened Everton side, but the Blues struggled to break down the Toffees defence, and with Mason Mount scoring in the 70th minute, Chelsea conceded five minutes later as Jarrad Branthwaite met a free kick from close range.

Speaking after the game, Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel admitted that the players were frustrated in the dressing room after the game.

“Today we were not in the lead at half-time, obviously, but we could have been in the lead at half-time, easy,” he said.

“We have to be careful now, also myself, because it is easy to point the finger and say it happens again, it happens again, but we have a huge chance to sit here after the same game and talk about a 3-0 and how impressive things are when we miss so many players.

“It’s a huge possibility because it’s one free-kick and we got punished again. If we look back it seems that it happens too often. We need to consider that sometimes when looking back we also do a lot of mistakes when analysing and finding patterns which are maybe not there. But you can be sure we will not look away, the dressing room is so very disappointed, I’m very disappointed, of course.”
