Premier League campaigners, Chelsea, were on Sunday evening, November 11 held to a barren draw by rivals, Everton, at Stamford Bridge.

The clash saw Ross Barkley benched against his boyhood club before being introduced late in the second half.

Chelsea were looking to continue with their impressive run of results under new manager, Maurizio Sarri, and a win against the Toffees would have seen them put more pressure on Premier League pacesetters Manchester City and Liverpool.

However, the frustrating draw left them rooted third on the EPL standings with 28 points, two behind Liverpool who stunned Fulham to go top at Anfield.

The visitors started the Sunday clash promisingly with a well-organised shape, very compact, squeezing the shape.

Ahead of the fixture, Chelsea were boasting of a good record over the Toffees, having won 13 of their 23 Premier League meetings at Stamford Bridge, drawing 10 of those.

The homeside first pulled the strings minutes after half-time, with Pickford denying Morata who was superbly set up by Hazard.

The Spaniard should have put the Blues ahead in the 66th minute, but his thunderous low effort hit the post.

In the 72nd minute, Morata's goal was ruled offside to deny him a glorious chance to put his side ahead.

The two sides eventually shared spoils, as Maurizio Sarri set another Premier League record, making the longest unbeaten start in the Premier League by a manager.
