It was a tightly contested affair, as games involving Jose Mourinho teams tend to be, that was only decided by Willian at the death. Here are the THREE things we learned from Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Everton:
Many suspected Willian would be the one to make way following Juan Cuadrado’s move from Fiorentina, but following the former’s match-winning display against Aston Villa, it was his compatriot to lose out. Oscar’s talent has never been in question, but his consistency has.
Everton were unbeaten in the 11 previous games that Stones and Jagielka had completed together, but couldn’t manage to keep this record up against the league leaders. Many have blamed Martinez for the loss in defensive solidity between his and Moyes’ reign, but there doesn’t seem to be too much of a problem when he has the right personnel available.
Ridiculous how good John Stones is at 20 years old
