Manager continues fine start at Goodison Park as the Toffees earn goalless draw against the reigning champions

Sam Allardyce continued his unbeaten start as Everton manager with a hard-fought goalless draw at home to Chelsea.

Antonio Conte's Premier League champions had the better chances, with Willian's effort cleared off the line in a first-half scramble.

Marcos Alonso was also denied by a last-ditch clearance from substitute Ashley Williams just after the break, before the Everton defender deflected a Victor Moses cross on to his own bar. 

Everton soaked up the visitors' pressure and nearly claimed three points when Michael Keane headed over in stoppage time.

Everton are six matches unbeaten and remain ninth. Chelsea stay third.
