Ballack: Europa League Should Not Be Priority for Chelsea

Maurizio Sarri also beat the previous record held by Nottingham Forest's Frank Clark back in 1994 as the new manager with the most number of unbeaten games under his belt.

So far the Blues are unbeaten in 18 straight matches in all tournaments.

While the draw was certainly a huge blow for Maurizio Sarri and his men but after the game, the Italian has managed to set a unique record with the Blues.

"I don't think it is a physical problem, in the second half we played at another speed, intensity, so I don't think it is physical, maybe mental". It is part of the game, I guess.

"I am feeling the wear and tear, I have been playing football as a professional for more than ten years now", he said. "I don't know. I don't think the problem is a physical problem because, in the last two or three matches, the effort was the same." .

"At the moment, we are doing well and that's why I am doing well".

The England goalkeeper was the Toffees' star performer with a string of excellent stops as Chelsea missed the chance to go top of the Premier League above Liverpool, with Manchester City able to reclaim top spot with at least a point against Manchester United.

Pressed again on whether he will leave west London in early 2019, Christensen said: "I don't think so".

"I don't think so", Sarri added. It is very hard to stay close to these teams.

Walker says that Sarri is not used to such a packed schedule with no winter break and he is keen for the Chelsea boss to use the current worldwide break to organise for what is to come.

The match was often ill-tempered, with Jorginho and Marcos Alonso fortunate not to be sent off for risky tackles on Gylfi Sigurdsson and Theo Walcott respectively as well as frequent angry exchanges between the Chelsea and Everton benches. We can't give up on him, else we'll live to regret it - again.
