Chelsea win without brilliance over Everton to start their season!

After Liverpool’s slip against Fulham (2-2), who had just been promoted to the Premier League, and Tottenham’s big win over Southampton (4-1), the first day of the English championship continued on Saturday. At Goodison Park’s lair last season, Everton hosted their 16th, Chelsea who finished third the year before. For this encounter, Tovez, bereft of Andre Gomes (muscle injury), Andros Townsend (cruciate ligament), Asmir Begovic (ankle), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (knee) and Tom Davies, presented themselves in a 3-4-3 with Gray . McNeill and Gordon are on the front line of the attack. In the absence of Ross Barkley (groin) and Timo Werner (Ishio), Thomas Tuchel led 4-3-3 with Koulibaly, Azpilicueta and Sterling, the new Blues players.

In a relatively closed start to the game as the Toffees and Blues neutralized each other, Everton suffered the first blow. She hit the right ankle after a foul on Havertz’s feet, and Godfrey quickly made way for Holgate (18). A few seconds later, Mount took advantage of a superb three-way set to fire a superb shot but Pickford saved well. Frank Lampard’s men were worried, too. On a cross from Mikolenko from the left side, Gordon put a sharp header, but Mendy deviated with one press to deflect the ball over the crossbar (24). They dominated the match, but the Blues still struggled to be dangerous. And if Sterling thought of scoring his first goal for the Blues in the Premier League, shortly before the break, Craig Pawson finally punished the English striker from an offside position (43).

Chelsea starts in earnest!

Checked out, Chelsea used ten minutes of extra time at the end of the first term to make a difference. Unbalanced by Doucouré in the area, Chilwell earned another Jorginho penalty without shaking (0-1, 45+9). In front of the break, the London club was very afraid when they came back from the locker room. Gray ran deep, much faster than Silva but the Brazilian defender finally came back to convert the ball and save Mendy (48). In the aftermath, Doukuri also tried his luck after a big mess in the Blues but Mendy was still there (52nd). Master of debates, but anxious at times, Chelsea quietly (also?) dominated this meeting.

Determined to preserve this slight advantage, Thomas Tuchel brought in fresh blood a few minutes after the end of this game. After Loftus-Cheek and Pulisic, the new London recruits Broja and Cucurella appeared. However, the new faces found in Goodison Park did not change the rhythm of a particular and choppy meeting. Solid defensively, Chelsea thought of doubling down, but Sterling, whom Cucurella found well, finally saw Mikolenko stepping into a disaster (82nd place). Not too bright but collectively serious, Chelsea kept that tight lead on the scoreboard. With this result (1-0), Thomas Tuchel is sixth. For his part, Everton occupies the sixteenth place.
