Chelsea 2-0 Everton: Havertz shines as false nine as Tuchel’s love story continues

Chelsea’s unbeaten run under Tuchel continues after a 2-0 win over Everton.

It was Godfrey’s own goal that broke the deadlock in the first half when Havertz’s shot hit the defender and crossed the line.

Havertz’s turn to stake his claim and the Germany international put in the kind of show that suggested he could well be the missing piece for Chelsea’s forward line.

Making his first league start since Tuchel’s debut game in charge against Wolves, Havertz was deployed in a central role between wide forwards Werner and Callum Hudson-Odoi, playing as a ‘false nine’.

His influence continued to be felt, however, it’s was Havertz who also won the penalty  he was fouled by Pickford and Jorginho steps in to convert the goal which sealed all three points for Tuchel’s side.

This game was all about Havertz and the impact he could have on this side going forward as he combined well with both Werner and Hudson-Odoi.

The hosts could’ve had more if not for the goalkeeper as he made good saves to withhold Werner, Alonso and Mount.

That’s 11 games on the row without defeat under Tuchel for Chelsea in all competitions and they stay in fourth, four points above Everton.

Next up for them is a trip to Leeds United.

Everton’s nine-game unbeaten run away from home comes to an end as they stay in fifth for now, with West Ham kicking off soon.

Ancelotti will be hoping they can bounce back against Burnley next time out.
