Gylfi Sigurdsson has praised his teammates second-half display in Everton’s 2-0 victory over Chelsea.
Richarlison gave Everton the lead on 49 minutes before Sigurdsson added a second on 72″ in a resurgent second half display by Everton.
Sigurdsson: “We started on the front foot in the second half and it was completely different to the first period.
“We were poor before the break but we defended well in the first half and we stayed in the game. We always thought we would create chances and we took them after the break.
“There was more movement and we won a lot more second balls which was important. It is better to score form open play than penalties but I managed to put it away after he made the save.
“I thought were were defensively very good after taking the lead and it was nice to keep a clean sheet.”
