Potter Frustrated By Chelsea Defence Against Everton

Chelsea coach, Graham Potter has rues his team’s defending in the disappointing 2-2 draw against Everton at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

The Blues thought they had the maximum points sealed after Kai Havertz’s penalty gave them a 2-1 lead.

Substitute Ellis Simms restored parity for Everton in the 89th minute after helding off Khalidou Koulibaly.

“Ultimately, the first goal is really disappointing from a set-piece perspective. We talked about that before the game. And then the second goal, we haven’t attacked well enough and then exposed ourselves to a big space to defend and we haven’t done it well enough,” Potter said.

“When you look at how much we put into the game, how much we tried to attack, to be cheap with the goals we conceded is frustrating,” he said.

However, Potter said he was pleased with his team’s overall performance.

“I think results-wise, it’s a step back because we wanted to win. But performance-wise it’s step forward. There was a lot good in the game. We attacked well,” he said.

Chelsea remain in 10th spot in the Premier League, 11 points adrift of Tottenham Hotspur in fourth.
