Comments:

League position: 4th Chelsea remained unbeaten in their 11 games in all competitions under manager Thomas Tuchel (won eight). The Blues had now kept a clean sheet in five consecutive home games in the Premier League for the first time since January 2015. They had now won 11 of their last 15 games in the Premier League played on a Monday (lost two).

Comments:

League position: 6th This was Everton's first defeat in their last ten away league games (won seven); their longest such unbeaten run since May 1985 in League Division One. The Toffees had now conceded seven more own goals in the Premier League than any other team in the history of the division (53). Lucas Digne made his 100th appearance for Everton in all competitions.
