Havertz dazzles as Tuchel writes name in Premier League folklore

Blues now unbeaten in 11 since Tuchel's appointment

Chelsea moved to within 4 points of second placed Manchester United after they defeated Everton 2-0 at Stamford Bridge in their Matchday 28 meeting in the English Premier League.

Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel made a number of changes to the starting lineup, citing freshness and rotation as his reasons for the changes. Three of the players drafted into the starting XI combined after half an hour to open the scoring for the home side. Callum Hudson-Odoi received the ball and pirouetted away from a number of Everton players before releasing wingback, Marcos Alonso who had gone beyond Everton’s Alex Iwobi. Alonso’s cutback into the box was met by German midfielder, Kai Havertz whose shot was deflected into the goal by Everton defender, Ben Godfrey for an own goal to make it 1-0 to Chelsea. Chelsea scored a second 20 minutes into the second half after a line-breaking pass from Mateo Kovacic set Havertz free and he rounded the Everton keeper, but was brought down doing so. Jorginho stepped forward to score the resulting penalty and double his side’s advantage as they held on for the win and clean sheet.

Chelsea are now unbeaten in 11 games under Tuchel, with the German tactician yet to taste defeat in Chelsea blue. Tuchel also became the first manager ever in Premier League history to keep 5 clean sheets in his first 5 home.matches in charge of a club.
