    Chelsea 5-0 Everton

    Chelsea boss Antonio Conte for BBC Sport: "It was a great game, a good performance.

    "The players deserve this because they show me great commitment and I can tell they are working very hard.

    "It is great for Thibaut Courtois, in some games we would conceded two or three goals but now situation has changed. The team has more balance defensively, but we don't lose our offensive situation, we are creating ore chance to score goals.

    "It is important for confidence to be top of the league. We have to continue as Everton is now in the past."

  4. 'The whole team is playing well'

    Chelsea 5-0 Everton

    Chelsea wing-back Marcos Alonso, speaking to BT Sport: "I am very happy to score my first goal, the whole team is playing very well and that is important. Now is time to rest over the international break and come back with the same concentration."

    A good performance, Antonio? Just good!? I think it was a bit better than that...

  6. 'A good performance'

    Chelsea 5-0 Everton

    Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, speaking to BT Sport: "It was a good performance, I am pleased. I think we played good football, we created chances to score and kept a fifth clean sheet in a row.

    "I am pleased for the players, they were fantastic. We must continue to work hard.

    "Eden Hazard played an impressive game. We all know he is a talented player, I see he is working a lot for the team and his teammates are very happy for this. He must continue, he is showing his talent in every game.

    "It wasn't easy for Marcos Alonso to arrive in England, change leagues, so I am very happy for him.

    "It is fantastic to be top of the league, today it was important to play and to win."

  7. Post update

    Chelsea 5-0 Everton

    Everton manager Ronald Koeman, speaking to BBC Sport: "The difference was too big between Chelsea and Everton, the one positive thing is it is only three points."

  8. 'Chelsea showed us how to play'

    Chelsea 5-0 Everton

  9. We didn't compete - Jagielka

    Chelsea 5-0 Everton

    Everton defender Phil Jagielka: "We were second best all over the park - we thoroughly deserved to lose. 

    "Every time they went forward they had a chance of scoring a goal. Frustration for the fans coming down, but hopefully it is just one game and we can bounce back. 

    "You don't want to give any side a 2-0 head start - never mind someone of their quality - because then you're just chasing the game.

    "You have to come here and compete and we didn't do that."

  10. 'Five beautiful goals'

    Chelsea 5-0 Everton

    Chelsea goalscorer Eden Hazard, speaking to BT Sport: "It was an unbelievable win. We scored five beautiful goals and could have scored more. I am enjoying my football, we are playing well, we are creating a lot of chances and scoring a lot of goals.

    "Top of the table is a good place and we want to stay there until the end."

  11. They were too strong - Koeman

    Chelsea 5-0 Everton

    Everton boss Ronald Koeman, to BT Sport: "They played very well, I expected more from my team. It was a big difference in every aspect. 

    "It was not about the system, the difference was the mentality to win the game With five defenders we control it, after 2-0 it was over.

    "You have to accept sometimes n life your opponent is by far the better team.

    "It is a difficult system to play against, the big difference with Chelsea is they have the winning mentality and quality on the ball. They were far too strong for Everton."

  13. All about 3-4-3

    Chelsea 5-0 Everton

    Since Antonio Conte changed formation five games ago, Chelsea have won five games, kept five clean sheets and scored 16 goals.

    I predict every team in the Premier League will be playing 3-4-3 by the end of the month.

    Chelsea 5-0 Everton

    A little bit of Mambo No. 5 is being pumped through the speakers as Chelsea and Everton fans leave Stamford Bridge.

    A cheeky nod to the scoreline? 

  17. No longer feeling blue

    Chelsea 5-0 Everton

    Last season must feel like a rapidly fading bad dream for Chelsea fans.

    They have now won five of their six Premier League home games this season, as many as they managed in the whole of 2015/16.  

  18. Get Involved


    Robert: Has anyone seen Romelu Lukaku?? Was last seen leaving the tunnel at Stamford Bridge sometime around 5:30pm. 

    Vishak: Koeman's Everton thoroughly undone at Stamford Bridge today. It's been a refreshing 10/10 performance by Chelsea.

    Chelsea 5-0 Everton

    What a display!

    Everyone is up on their feet applauding after one of the best - if not the best - performances by a Premier League side this season.

    Chelsea go top of the table. On this display, it will take something special to deny them that position come May.


    Chelsea 5-0 Everton

    All over and Everton are finally put out of their misery.
