Coaches Discuss Chelsea and Everton Sharing 2 Goals and 2 Points

While Mason Mount secured the initial goal at home, Stamford Bridge, on Thursday night, 19-year-old Jarrad Branthwaite equalized soon after. So, in yesterday’s football news, Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea couldn’t stop Rafael Benitez’s Everton from levelling at 1-1 with the hosts. And now, the two club’s coaches discuss Chelsea and Everton sharing 2 goals and 2 points, one each, last night.

Coaches Discuss Chelsea and Everton Sharing 2 Goals and 2 Points

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has expressed his frustration over Everton sneaking in a 1-1 late draw with the Blues.

“Yes, of course (it is frustrating) to give away another lead,” German head coach Thomas Tuchel told BT Sport.

“If we see the effort we bring in a match like this, the effort we need to score one goal and the effort the opponent needs to score an equaliser; it is hard to swallow,” Tuchel went on.

“We missed big chances to get the result in the first half and second half we did not find the rhythm consistently and tried to bring on some energy from the bench, but it was hard. We had the lead and give it away with one free kick.”

Meanwhile, on Thursday night yesterday, former Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez returned to Stamford Bridge under pressure after poor results recently. (But, of late, it’s not been all too bad under Benitez.)

On top of that, Benitez was working with a limited, shorthanded Everton squad, without the recently-injured Richarlison and Andros Townsend. These two powerhouses, as well as long-term absentee Dominic Calvert-Lewin, were among many of those unavailable for the away side.

“The game plan is always there and it depends on the players,” Benitez told BT Sport.

“The players, fans all together, the spirit of the Blues as they say, the issues with senior players not available, so we needed spirit, commitment and intensity against a good team. Really pleased and a good point,” the former Blues manager said about each side winning one point after drawing 1-1.
