Chelsea dropped yet more points in the English Premier League on Saturday, drawing 0-0 away to Everton at Goodison Park.
It was a frustrating 90 minutes for Antonio Conte’s side, who peppered the Toffees’ goal, only to be denied by goalkeeper Jordan Pickford who made some excellent saves and defender Phil Jagielka who was on hand to make crucial goal line clearances.
Although not losing many matches over the last couple of months, the draw means the Blues are now a massive 16 points behind Manchester City, with Manchester United having the chance to extend the gap over the Stamford Bridge side too.
Supporters were frustrated with the result and the lack of creativity in the final third, especially in the wide areas where players like Willian and Pedro failed to impress.
Fans are losing patience with Willian in particular, believing he is getting worse in a Chelsea shirt, rather than better.
Is it time to drop him?
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Willian and Pedro have degraded to a new low ,we should start thinking of replacing them.
May be in the upcoming transfer window. #CFC

What a disappointing performance.Not our day at all.It is crystal clear that Willian,Zappacosta, Alonso and Batshuayi are not good enough and are holding us back.Pedro is a back up at best.Painful to see Hazard playing with those.We need a LWB,RF and back up striker URGENTLY #CFC

Pedro and Willian have gone off the boil completely, lacking any creativity. Need a winger or two. Batshuayi isn’t the answer so let him go! Limp title defence over at Christmas, left only to fight for a CL place, not good enough! #CFC #KTBFFH

I would understand if Hazard & Courtois decided to leave Chelsea at the end of the season to play for a club with more ambition and alongside world class players instead of donkeys like Willian. #EVECHE #CFC

Anyone else counting how many times Willian has lost the ball today. Think it’s over 20 now #CFC

Willian has the composure of a wet piece of paper. Shocking #CFC

#CFC Willian is complete liability, unnecessary flicks, after you have scored you can show your tricks. We need a goal and we need it soon! We have played well but Everton is looking for a small slip o score and then park the entire bus! Wake up Chelsea! We need 3 points Come on
