Chelsea press conference LIVE: Thomas Tuchel on Everton, Frank Lampard, Loftus-Cheek, Havertz


Good afternoon and welcome to live coverage of Thomas Tuchel’s post-match press conference after Chelsea’s 1-0 Premier League defeat to Everton at Goodison Park.

This was a game that Everton almost certainly had to win to keep their hopes of survival alive. It’s why the Toffees’ team coach was greeted by more than a thousand supporters, why the atmosphere inside Goodison Park was raucous.

It wasn’t until early into the second period that Everton responded, though. A mistake from Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta allowed Richarlison to score a vital goal – much to the frustration of Thomas Tuchel.

The Blues did look to respond. Mason Mount saw an effort strike both posts and Jordan Pickford produced a fine stop to deny Antonio Rudiger from a Chelsea corner. But it wasn’t enough for Chelsea.

Everton remain two points from safety but have a game in hand on the sides above them in the Premier League table. Frank Lampard will still feel side can pull out of the relegation zone before the campaign comes to an end.

Tuchel is unlikely to be a happy man, however, and we are in position to get the post-match thoughts from the Chelsea head coach from here at Goodison. Live updates will appear below.
