Chelsea Top Four Hopes In Tatters After Everton Win




Chelsea are in serious trouble after their latest Premier League defeat left them with a lot of do in the race for a top-four spot at the end of the season.

The Blues missed out on a fantastic opportunity to close the gap on the teams above them on the table following their 2-0 defeat at the hands of Everton.

Tottenham Hotspur (third), Arsenal (fourth), Manchester United (fifth) and Chelsea (sixth) are all battling for the top four places on the Premier League table with just four points separating the aforementioned four teams.

The top four places will guarantee Champions League football next season.

An away win over Everton would have taken Chelsea to within one point of Tottenham Hotspur in third place and level with the Gunners in fourth place but the Blues missed out on that opportunity.

Chelsea dominated the first half with Star player Eden Hazard hitting the post in the first ten minutes.

The Blues wasted several opportunities in the first half and that came back to haunt them against a rejuvenated Everton side in the second half.

Richarlison gave the Toffees the lead just four minutes into the second half before Gylfi Sigurdsson added a second goal in the 72ND minute after scoring the rebound from his saved penalty.

It was the Toffees’ first league win at home for over two months.
