    Half time – Chelsea v Everton

    Stalemate so far in West London.

    Chelsea have had 81% possession and most of it in Everton's half.

    However, Everton have sat back and played a nice shape.

    They have limited Chelsea to six shots on goal, most of them straight at Pickford.

    Mason Mount's one-on-one was the best chance of the half.

    Rudiger played a part in it and Mount danced through the Everton defence, found himself staring down Pickford but England's number one saved with his feet.

    Chelsea 0-0 Everton

    34. Ziyech with a nice one-two with Pulisic but his strike is dragged wide.

    24. Everton will be reasonably content with this so far.

    Although they don't look like creating much.

    Chelsea have the lion's share of possession but Everton are focussed on the defensive end.

    Chelsea retain the ball, passing from left to right and right to left but can't find a way in despite Loftus-Cheek's effort with a silky Cruyff turn.
