Chelsea’s seventh defeat of the season leaves X Reacts as Everton takes the win

In the latest Premier League action, Chelsea suffered their seventh defeat of the season at the hands of Everton, who secured a 2-0 victory on Sunday. The goals came from Abdoulaye Doucoure and Lewis Dobbin in the second half, adding to Chelsea’s recent run of disappointing results.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino made several changes to the starting lineup in an attempt to boost the team’s performance after their midweek loss to Manchester United. Armando Broja’s selection over Nicolas Jackson received a positive response from Chelsea fans on social media, who hoped it would bring success.

However, Chelsea captain Reece James suffered another injury setback and was forced off in the first half, deepening concerns about his long-term fitness. The somber half resulted in a midfield battle that hindered the flow of the game until the break.

Despite a quiet first half, the action picked up in the second as Everton’s Dwight McNeil tested Chelsea goalkeeper Robert Sanchez and eventually reached Abdoulaye Doucoure, who capitalized on a rebound to give Everton the lead. Chelsea struggled to mount a comeback, with a notably lackluster performance in the final third.

As frustrations grew among Chelsea fans, their misery was compounded in the final minutes of the game when Sanchez was also forced off with an injury. Everton’s Lewis Dobbin then scored the second goal of the match, securing a 2-0 win and prompting a storm of disheartened reactions from Chelsea supporters.

The defeat adds to Chelsea’s growing list of woes, leaving many fans questioning the team’s direction and managerial decisions. The loss will undoubtedly intensify the pressure on Pochettino, raising doubts about his ability to steer the club back to success. As the season progresses, Chelsea will have to address their issues to avoid further disappointment on the pitch.
