Chelsea are still in second place in the Premier League, three points behind the leaders, Manchester City.
Everton’s win on Saturday night was their third in a row, and is the first of their last five away matches in all competitions.
And now, the Blues have their sights set on the title, and their first in all six of their league matches this season.
Roberto Martinez’s men have won all five of their games at the Britannia Stadium, but have failed to score in any of their previous three away matches.
The Blues have also been wasteful of chances and created fewer chances than in any other game this season, but the hosts will look to bounce back on Saturday.
“We’re very, very happy, very satisfied,” said Everton manager Roberto Martinez.
“Chelsea played well, but we were unlucky not to score at the other end.”
Chelsea’s title hopes were dashed by a 2-1 defeat to the Toffees on Saturday evening.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte says his team’s performance was poor but he admits he still has “no idea” if they are title contenders.
“You don’t know what you’re doing, you don’t have any idea, because we didn’t play as well as we want to,” said Conte.
“So it’s not a question of how many points we have.
We need to play like we want.”
But I’m very happy that we’re in the position we are, because I have a lot of confidence in our football and the way we play, the way our team play, because they have a good team.
The Blues are unbeaten in the league, but are just one point behind Everton in third place.”
It was an important performance and I think we will go forward and finish the season in the top four.”
