– Stream ESPN FC Daily on ESPN (US. only) – Are Pulisic’s missing minutes at Chelsea a concern?

Blues boss Tuchel, who had won seven times and drawn three times since joining Frank Lampard, gave Kai Havertz a start, while US. International Christian Pulisic failed again to make it to the XI

Callum Hudson-Odoi’s outstanding first-half game kicked off Chelsea when he met Marcos Alonso in the penalty area on Havertz to get a shot from Ben Godfrey into the net and score an own goal by Everton

Alonso was back in goal before halftime and had an excellent chance to double the home team’s lead, but Everton’s goalkeeper Jordan Pickford reacted great to the Spaniard’s snap and Chelsea took a 1-0 lead at the break

Jorginho doubled in 65 Minute, Chelsea took the lead with a penalty, sending Pickford the wrong way after the Everton Havertz goalkeeper pulled down in the area to give the hosts a chance

The result leaves Chelsea, who have not conceded nine goals since Tuchel took office, with 50 points from 28 games, four ahead of fifth Everton and three behind third-placed Leicester City

Due to Monday’s closure, Tuchel became the first manager to clean up in each of his first five home games in the Premier League

Tuchel praised Havertz, who was knocked down by COVID-19 in November and then mainly used as a substitute before sustaining an injury last month

“It was the trust we gave him and he took advantage of the trust we gave him. He’s a player with the ability to be a dominant offensive figure and he’s strengthened”, said Tuchel
