Chelsea owner Todd Boehly makes no secret of his feelings over pornographic verdict on Everton draw
Todd Boehly gave an explicit response at Stamford Bridge after Chelsea struggled late against Everton to settle for a 2-2 Premier League draw on Saturday afternoon
Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly branded his team’s draw with Everton a “shit game”, as they lost two vital points late on.
The Blues were seemingly on course for victory in west London against the Merseysiders after Joao Felix and Kai Havertz scored on either side of Abdoulaye Doucoure’s equaliser. However, they were denied in the 89th minute of the encounter when young striker Josh Simms scored a superb second for Sean Dyche’s side.
The draw left Chelsea 10th in the Premier League standings, their hopes of a European qualification having taken another huge blow. They could have cut the gap on fourth-placed Tottenham to nine points with victory.
Blues owner Boehly let his frustration show after the match when he was caught on camera. In a video shared on social media, the American billionaire said “shit game” in response to a supporter.

Sandwiched between two security guards, Boehly continued away from Stamford Bridge. His frustration is likely to be shared by fans and Chelsea manager Graham Potter.
Giving his verdict on the draw, the former Brighton worker said: “We are very disappointed as we have lost two points at home. We wanted to win and you saw the team’s intention.
“There were a lot of positive things about the performance, but at the end of the day we didn’t defend well enough and to concede two goals it’s not easy to win the game. That’s the disappointing thing for us.”
Opening up about his feelings inside the locker room, he added: “The boys are disappointed. I’ll keep this private, but the boys were frustrated because they put so much into the game and wanted to win.
“As I said, in terms of performance, it was very strong, but we are very frustrated because we cannot concede the goals we scored and we hope to win the games”.
The Blues will be taking a break for the upcoming international break, when multiple players will fly to all corners of the globe. They will then focus on the final third of the campaign as they look to secure a place in Europe alongside their fight to win the Champions League for a third time.
The first game after the international break pits Chelsea against Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge as they are drawn to face Spanish giants Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals. If they find a route past Los Blancos, they will face Bayern Munich or Premier League rivals Manchester City in the next round.
A strong run in Europe would go some way to offset what could be one of Chelsea’s lowest Premier League finishes during Boehly’s first season in charge.
