David Luiz says Chelsea will not allow their Premier League title challenge to be derailed by Sunday’s 0-0 draw with Everton. The Blues dominated at Stamford Bridge but wasted a number of opportunities and Luiz also felt Everton defended well.

The Brazilian defender believes Chelsea were unlucky not to take all three points and says the squad remain convinced they can maintain their title challenge over the course of the campaign. “We controlled the game,” he told the club website.
“The marking from Everton was amazing. They blocked the space in the middle so we didn’t have a lot of combinations in the middle and from the sides, and in the end they were a bit lucky because we tried to score but didn’t score. “We did everything to try to win.
Sometimes it’s possible, sometimes it’s not, and we’re still there, trying to be at the top of the table so we’re going to fight until the end.”
Chelsea go into the international break in third spot in the Premier League table, four points adrift of leaders Manchester City and two behind Liverpool in second.
