Chelsea were forced to a barren draw at home by Everton on Sunday as they lost ground to fellow title-chasers Liverpool who won earlier in the day.

Chelsea needed three points after Liverpool's 2-0 win over Fulham but they could not make their home advantage count against a well-organised Everton side and failed to score for only the second time in the league this season.

After a tight and often scrappy first half, Chelsea improved in the second period but, despite remaining unbeaten in the league, they were unable to convert their chances.

The result left Chelsea in third place on 28 points, two points behind Liverpool and one behind Premier League champions Manchester City who host local rivals Manchester United later on Sunday.

That said, the Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri has now gone into the history books as the manager with the most games unbeaten in their debut season in the Premier League.
