In a display that was probably both an Evertonian’s nightmare and a defensive coach’s dream, Sam Allardyce once again managed to cause murder amongst a set of fans that believe they are entitled to beat everyone as they pass them by with a pat on the back and a smile.
But when you’re coming to Goodison you can swerve your pats on the back and you can take a sucker punch from an angry Jordan Pickford. Combine that with a biblical two-footer from Idrissa Gana Gueye and a flailing elbow from Jonjoe Kenny and you can create Chelsea tears in about 3 seconds flat.
And if Keane’s header found the net, oh my, that’s a night sorted isn’t it. But as Everton remain Everton, you’re never getting 100% satisfaction across ninety minutes so alas, 0-0.
Anyway there were some things to be excited about going forward and some things that need to improve ( And one that needs to be dealt with).
