So how are you all feeling about last night. I am deflated i have to say. I honestly thought that with the changes Everton had made that we would take the points last night. But as usual they came to the Bridge and defended with two banks for four in front of their goal and played well. Defended the space and shut Chelsea out last night.

Frank Lampard never really had the space between the midfield and defence he has had in recent weeks and couldn't really impose himself on the game. Anelka was again ineffective last night on the wing and was taken off for Kalou half way through the second half. I have to say in my opinion we should of started with Kalou to freshen things up and play natural width against their full backs. Anelka does a job out there but you have to say apart from the odd cross into Drogba its not alot is it?.

By playing Anelka wide his goal tally in the Premier League has dried up and he now hasn't scored in the league since February. I know this is mainly down to Drogba's return to form but at the moment i just do not see Anelka as the answer.

Another thing that seemed strange to me was a change in formation last night and tactics. Just recently Ballack has played a more withdrawn role in midfield next to Essien with Lamps playing in front of them. But last night that all changed. Ballack started as the holding midfielder and Essien was pushed on with Lampard back to the same formation under Jose and Scolari. I couldn't understand that as we have been scoring goals and playing well in the last couple of games.

The most frustrating thing about last night was that in all our possession we only tested Tim Howard once through John Terry's 35 yarder and hit the crossbar three minutes into Injury time. If anything Everton had three chances in the game and a penalty decision that could of been given after seeing the replay last night and should of taken three points with them.

Did we run out of steam? Did we look tired? This is what some of the British Press are reporting this morning but I for one do not believe that's the case. I think that Everton came to the Bridge to do a job and under David Moyes as usual they did it really well last night and credit to them.

So if we are realistic now the Premier League is out the window but the fight is still there for second place and we HAVE to finish above Liverpool. Let's make sure we get behind the boys as i believe the return of Robbie Keane to Anfield on the last day of the season could haunt Liverpool. Come on the Chels!
