Chelsea have not won the Premier League title since the Antonio Conte era in 2016 and they might have to wait until 2023 at least if they don’t get their acts together at Stamford Bridge. The Blues have one of the best away records in the Premier League this season, but it’s their home form that has threatened to derail their title challenge even before the halfway stage of the season.
Chelsea needed to keep the pace up with leaders Manchester City after their impressive 7-0 mauling of injury-hit Leeds United by beating a clearly under-strength Everton team. In the end, they could not beat the Toffees after young defender Jarrod Branthwaite cancelled out the goal from Chelsea playmaker Mason Mount as the two teams settled for a share of the spoils.
The 1-1 draw with visitors Everton makes it three draws in four home games for Chelsea who are now four points adrift of leaders Manchester City on the Premier League log.
