Richarlison scored the only goal of the game as Everton produced one of the shock football scores of the weekend in the Premier League. Despite the three points, they find themselves two points behind Burnley and Leeds with a game in hand against relegated Watford. Richarlison scored the only goal in the 46th minute with Jordan Pickford making a number of crucial saves for the hosts.
Everton boss Frank Lampard: “Difficult. They are always a team that will put you under pressure late on. We did brilliantly. The team, stadium, and the fans were men of the match today. From the drive into the support, which we need. Thanks to them. The fans are in the middle of this. I am pleased the players could see on the way what it means to the fans. They know that and understand it. They got behind us, and were nicely aggressive, this place has to be a hard place to come. Results have been good here at Goodison before I came, we have to maintain that.”
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel: “We hate to lose, we are responsible for it. It was our responsibility in Old Trafford to not have more – we struggle to have consecutive clean sheets and top performances and that is why we lost today. We have to be without mistakes, disciplined in our positions, and don’t make mistakes. When you have that much possession, we did not play our best match, but we were in control, and then we gave a goal away and it kills the game for us because it is everything the opponent wants. It is a huge pattern in our season. We struggle with concentration and determination levels and you see that in the last four matches.”
