Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri says his side need to “sort out the problem” of how they “approach” games after they were held to a scrappy goalless draw by Everton.
Sarri’s Blues had the better chances at Stamford Bridge but missed the opportunity to briefly return to the top of the Premier League.
“I think we have to sort out the problem of the approach of the match,” said Sarri. “Because in the last two or three matches we haven’t been approaching the games right.
“At the beginning we moved the ball too slowly, so it is easy for the opposition to defend and impossible for us to be dangerous.”
However, the result means Chelsea have now stayed unbeaten in their opening 12 top-flight games for only the second time in their history.
It also secured a small piece of history for Sarri himself, who has become the first Premier League manager to avoid defeat in their first dozen games.
