Sam Allardyce was pleased with Everton’s effort in their 0-0 draw against Chelsea – but was disappointed his side didn’t threaten their goal.
The draw means it is now six matches unbeaten since Allardyce was confirmed as the new Toffees boss, with four wins and two draws.
And Allardyce admits there was plenty of positives to Everton’s play as they shut out the Blues at Goodison Park.
“Hard-earned is certainly right,” Allardyce told Sky Sports. “In terms of effort, commitment, organisation, we have played a hugely talented front five and have had a bit of luck but rolled up our sleeves to get a result.
“It keeps the undefeated run going, and you have to respect a point against the big boys.
“It is disappointing that we did not really threaten their goal apart from Michael Keane’s header at the end. The quality of the ball was disappointing today, but the effort was top class and we are well satisfied with a point.
“We want to be better in possession, but when we dominated Swansea, that is what we will be like against other teams.”
