Chelsea's slow starts a concern for Sarri

When asked why he felt that winless streak could come to an end on Sunday, Toffees boss Silva said: "Confidence in our work, confidence in the way we are playing, seeing that our team is growing and playing better and getting better results the last month and a half, two months".

Sarri can also set a Premier League record this weekend: if Chelsea avoid defeat, he will have made the longest unbeaten start in the Premier League by a manager or head coach.

Frustrated by Chelsea's failure to turn possession into goals, Sarri said: "Usually yes we are sharp enough, but not in the last three matches".

Some moments we blocked him, sometimes he created problems like he normally does as he is a fantastic player.

"Then I think we have played a very good match in the first part of the second half, for 40 minutes".

United were back in the game shortly after when Anthony Martial converted a penalty after substitute Romelu Lukaku had been hauled down by City goalkeeper Ederson.

"I am very proud of my record, but I have to say thank you to the club because they gave me a strong squad and I have to say thank you to the players and the staff. I am not happy of course, but I think we are [moving] in the right way".

"The average points of City and Liverpool is very high".

His team failed to score for only the second time in the league this season against a well-organised Everton, who stayed ninth in the table.

Earlier, Alonso steered a free-kick narrowly wide and, late in the first half, had the game's first effort on target when Pickford kept out his volley from Willian's right-wing cross.

That was one of several flash-points in a bruising clash that saw Chelsea's Jorginho booked for crunching into Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Maurizio Sarri and Marco Silva have both insisted their altercation during the 0-0 draw between Chelsea and Everton was a "normal" exchange.

Chelsea: Kepa, Alonso, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Kante, Jorginho (Fabregas 64), Kovacic (Barkley 82), Willian (Pedro 68), Hazard, Morata. Running at the Everton defence with abandon, Hazard went close again when his shot deflected off Yerry Mina, forcing Pickford to tip over at full stretch.
