Chelsea gave their top-four ambitions a boost as they secured a 2-0 win against Everton at Stamford Bridge on Monday night, Completesports.com reports.

Alex Iwobi was in Everton’s starting eleven but had little impact before going off on 56 minutes for Tom Davies.

A Ben Godfrey own goal and Jorginho penalty sealed the win for the Blues.

The win means Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has become the first manager in Premier League history to see his side keep a clean sheet in each of his first five home games in charge in the competition. 

The London club are unbeaten in 11 games since Tuchel’s appointment, winning eight and drawing three.

Also, the defeat ended Everton’s nine-game unbeaten away run.

The Toffees are now in sixth position on 46 points while Chelsea occupy fourth spot on 50 points in the league table.

Chelsea took the lead on 31 minutes after Kai Havertz’s shot took a big deflection off Godfrey before ending inside the back of the net.

And in the 65th minute Chelsea doubled their lead thanks to Jorginho who converted from the penalty spot, following a foul on Havertz by the Everton goalkeeper.

    How Ancellotti could not understand that Gomez n not Iwobi was the weak link baffles me. A Gomez playing as central midfielder and always passing sideways or backward. These managers sometimes do things that raise lots of questions. Same thing Roy Hudson did yesterday pulling out one of their real threat Eze, against Tottenham for Wilfred Zaha. Just hoping football fans are not being fooled by football games being pre arranged.
