Jordan Pickford

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois didn’t have to make any save today at Goodison Park vs Everton, but on the other end of the pitch, his colleague Pickford denied the Blues the chance to go back home with three points.

After the game Courtois spoke to Sky Sports admitting that also with Alvaro Morata it wouldn’t have been easy to beat Everton:Coming here was always going to be tough, they`re on a good run so we expected a tough game but we tried our best to win. Their goalkeeper made a few good saves and we had to be careful on the counter but other than a few free-kicks they didn`t have many chances. It`s not easy when a team falls back, I think we could`ve had more shots on target but we didn`t have a big guy up front despite lots of crosses into the box. We concentrated hard on keeping the clean sheet, which is a good thing from today of course, but we`re not happy we didn`t create the chances to score. “I`m not sure it would have been different with Morata, it was just one of those days”.

Chelsea are dominant at Goodison Park but they end their trip to Liverpool with a goalless draw despite 25 shots on goal.

The Blues are not able to convert their chances so to find three more points to reduce the gap from Premier League leaders Manchester City ( now 13 points up, but with one game in hand to be played against Bournemouth this afternoon).

Toffees goalkeeper Jordan Pickford offered an amazing performance, saving at least three dangerous balls, two by Eden Hazard, that was the best of his team hands down.

Anyway, it was probably Everton that went closer to score with Willian deflecting on the bar a ball kickes by Moses with 15 minutes to go and Calvert-Lewin throws a clear chance in the end of the first-half ignoring Sigurdsson, alone in the centre of the box and in a perfect position to beat Courtois.

A disappointing result for Chelsea that, however, will remain in third place ( 39 points) until after Boxing Day at least, since Liverpool and Arsenal drew 3-3 last night and remain 4 ( 35) and 5 ( 34) points behind.

The Blues will face Brighton at Stamford Bridge in the day after Christmas.

Jordan Pickford, 22 year old Sunderland’s keeper, is attracting attention from various Premier League’s team and Chelsea is reportedly among them.

The Blues are monitoring the young player’s situation, but there are also other candidates: especially Manchester City, Arsenal are all linked to a possible Pickford’s signing during the summer transfer window.

Obviously, much depends on whether Sunderland stay up and, as far as Chelsea is concerned, also on Asmir Begovic’s future with the Bosnia-Erzegovina star linked to Bornemouth last January, but who, at the moment, is willing to stay at Stamford Bridge “if the club count on me and want me to stay here”.
