What did the coaches say about the game ?
Chelsea coach Antonio Conte said:
"It was a great game, a good performance. It is important for confidence to be top of the league. We have to continue as Everton is now in the past.
"The players deserve this because they show me great commitment and I can tell they are working very hard. The team has more balance defensively, but we don't lose our offensive situation. We are creating more chances to score goals.
"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 team-mates are very happy for this. He must continue - he is showing his talent in every game."
Everton coach Ronald Koeman said:
"The difference was too big between Chelsea and Everton. The one positive thing is it is only three points.
"This system is very difficult to play against and really the Chelsea manager has brought a winning mentality to the players. They are hungry and they will fight for the title for sure.
"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."
