Everton boss Ronald Keoman says that it was always going to be difficult for his side to beat Chelsea, who the Dutchman believes will romp to the title this season.
Koeman watched his side battle hard to keep Chelsea out, but once the Londoners opened the scoring they were always going to score more.
“We did well, until 1-0 maybe,” he said.
“After that we had more problems but that was all about their quality, before that we played well and made it tough for them.
“Maybe we didn’t create a lot of chances, but I was happy. Idrissa Gueye played a fantastic game, Hazard was not the player he can be because of the man-marking.
“It is really tough to beat Chelsea. They showed their belief and their quality. They will be champions. We need to find the motivation to finish the season strongly.”
