Comments:

League position: 9th In their last home game of the year, this was the first draw in the Premier League at Goodison Park in 2017 (played 20). Everton had now kept three clean sheets in their five Premier League games under recently appointed manager Sam Allardyce; the same total they had kept in their previous 18 games in the competition. This was the Toffees' first goalless draw in the Premier League at Goodison Park since the visit of Liverpool on 7 February 2015.

Comments:

League position: 3rd Chelsea had now lost one of their last 11 games in the Premier League (won eight). This was the Blues' first goalless draw in an away game in the Premier League since their visit to Watford on 3 February 2016. They failed to score for the second time in their last 12 away games in the Premier League.
