Chelsea earned three more points proving wrong everyone who expected them to stumble at Goodison Park, and Antonio Conte was full of praise after the game for two players who were used to being regulars, but now have to… be ok with starting on the bench.
I think Cesc is a player who in this part of the season is showing to be decisive in every moment, no matter if he starts the game or if he comes on during the game
the Chelsea manager said, talking about Cesc Fabregas, who was involved in the third goal of the Blues against Everton.
Also Willy, I know very well that it’s not easy for a player who is used to playing every game and to come on during the game
the Italian told reporters about Willian, scorer of Chelsea’s third goal.
I must be pleased with them because they are showing me to be great men and fantastic players
Conte continued, having seen his team score three goals in the second half, to remain four points ahead of second-placed Tottenham (who beat Arsenal a couple of hours later). Pedro had opened the score, and Gary Cahill had given the Blues a two-goal cushion, before Willian finished the game off with his own goal.
