What we saw today?
After the win against Liverpool in the FA Cup we saw Chelsea play a little bit more confident.
They dominated in the first and the second half. The Blues created chance after chance while Everton lack of confidence was obvious.
However, Pickford was solid at goal and despite the two goals in the first half, but if it was not him there were going to be more goals for Chelsea. He made a great save after an attempt by Willian to find the net.
After today we won't be fair not to mention Billy Gilmour. He made a great impact over the game.
The 18-year-old was just great in midfield. He made a total of 72 passes, two good interceptions and two tackles.
As it seems Chelsea have a promising talent on their side.
