Chelsea beat Everton 2-0 last night.
It was a comprehensive win against a resurgent Everton side and the Toffees boss Carlo Ancelotti admitted that the Blues were superior.
“They played better than us. They deserved to win,” he told BT Sport. “We were good defensively for 30 minutes. When they scored the game became difficult for us. They are a good team.”
“The game that we planned was what we got for 30 minutes. We didn’t have a lot of opportunities,” he added. “Richarlison had a chance. But we have to be honest, we are not at the same level.
“We cannot play an open game against this kind of team. It was the plan to play the same way as we played against Liverpool, but against Liverpool we scored early.”
“We are looking to fight for Europe. This is good for us,” he continued. “We will be there until the last game. We are disappointed for this defeat but no tragedy. We look to the next game.”
The win was Tuchel’s 8th in 11 games, making him the first PL boss ever to keep 5 clean sheets at home in first five matches in charge in England.
