Chelsea suffered their first Premier League defeat since September after losing 1-0 to Everton on Saturday evening.

Blues want Ligue 1 loan for Tomori
OGC Nice are interested in signing Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori, according to The Sun.
The French club are keen on bringing Tomori in on loan after Dante suffered a serious knee injury recently.
Newcastle United have also expressed an interest in the 22-year-old centre-back, but the report claims that the Blues would prefer him to move to France.
Tomori has been restricted to just one Premier League appearance so far this season with the form of Thiago Silva and Kurt Zouma keeping him out of Lampard’s XI.
Madrid lead Alaba race
Real Madrid are now winning the race to sign Bayern Munich defender David Alaba next summer, according to a report from Spanish news outlet Marca.
Alaba sees his contract with the German side expire at the end of the 2020/21 season, and Chelsea have reportedly registered an interest, but the Blues may now be losing the battle for the Austria international.
Madrid are now in pole position to sign the 28-year-old on a free transfer when the season concludes.
Paris Saint-Germain are also keen on Alaba, according to reports, but the Santiago Bernabeu is looking like his most likely destination.
