‘S***f***ing game’ – Todd Boehly gives stark verdict on Chelsea’s draw with Everton
Chelsea owner Todd Boehly made his feelings clear after watching his side draw with Everton on Saturday.
Graham Potter’s side gave up the lead twice in their 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.
The equalizer came from Ellis Simms in the 89th minute after it looked like Kai Havertz had won the game from a penalty.
Earlier in the match, Abdoulaye Doucoure canceled Joao Félix’s opener.
Boehly was filmed by a fan after the match and giving his verdict, he said, “S***f***ing game.”
The draw ended the Blues’ three-game winning streak in all competitions as their Premier League campaign continues to point to mid-table mediocrity.
“We’re really disappointed because we lost two points at home,” Potter said after the game.
“You saw the intention of the team, there were a lot of positive things in the performance. But in the end, we didn’t defend well enough. To concede two goals means it’s not so easy to win the match. That’s the disappointing thing.

“Credit Everton, they do what they do well. They use their physicality, they use set pieces, they ask you a question. But we controlled most of the game well, as best we can at this level.
“At the end of the day, the first goal is really disappointing from a set piece point of view, we talked about it before the game. The second goal, we didn’t attack well enough and we exposed ourselves to a big space to defend and we didn’t do it well enough.
“When you look at how much we put into the game and how much we tried to attack, being cheap with the goals we concede is frustrating.
