Chelsea held 0-0 by Everton, lose ground in title race

Mateo Kovacic has told his team-mates to act with caution when they face Bate Borisov

Chelsea named Eden Hazard in his starting line-up for the first time in the Premier League since October 20, while Marco Silva handed a first start to summer arrival Yerry Mina - and the two were involved in the game's first talking point on 22 minutes.

Liverpool, having beaten bottom club Fulham 2-0 at Anfield, will go into the global break in second place after receiving a favour from neighbours Everton, who held Chelsea to a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge. "It's hard to answer".

Speaking ahead of the game, he said: "I have always wanted to come and play in the Premier League and my agent was aware of that and kept me informed on interest".

Frustrated by Chelsea's failure to turn possession into goals, Sarri said: "Usually yes we are sharp enough, but not in the last three matches".

"I think we played very well for 65 minutes, but we can do better".

The 27-year-old missed three matches with a back injury and on Thursday night made his first start since the October 20 draw with Manchester United.

At Stamford Bridge, Maurizio Sarri's unbeaten start as Chelsea boss in all competitions stretched to 18 games, but the hosts couldn't find a way past inspired England No. 1 Jordan Pickford.

"I am very proud of my record, but I have to say thank you to the club because they gave me a strong squad and I have to say thank you to the players and the staff".

A former high school classmate of Long also revealed that he was teased and bullied over his lazy eye, which deeply affected him. Investigators have not established a motive for the shooting, and knew of nothing that connected Long to the shooting site.

"I am really very happy with the record, but I'd prefer three points today".

If Sunday was all about the teams at the top end of the table then Saturday was very much a time for some of the bottom half sides to have their day in the sun.

It didn't help that, despite scoring twice against Crystal Palace last weekend, Alvaro Morata once again struggled to impose himself.

Alonso came closest for Chelsea on two occasions.

Bernard was involved in a flare-up just before half-time, moving his head aggressively towards Antonio Rudiger after the Chelsea defender confronted him over his failed attempt to win a free-kick.

"It was a tough match".

Eden Hazard may not play a full 90 minutes for Chelsea until after the worldwide break against Tottenham. Only the woodwork denied Chelsea when Alonso's low shot hit the far post, while Hazard clipped a shot narrowly wide as the Blues' frustration mounted.
