Everton v Chelsea

Everton

Everton took a point away from White Hart Lane in their last Premier League fixture thanks to a goalless draw against Tottenham. The Toffees have now recorded as many clean sheets in their opening four matches this season as they did in the opening eight matches of last season (2). Everton have failed to score in their previous two league matches and they haven't gone three matches in succession without a goal since David Moyes' side failed to find the net in four matches during 2006. Roberto Martinez picked up his first victory as Everton manager against Chelsea but the visitors have won two of the last three meetings at Goodison Park and five of the last six meetings between the sides overall. If Everton fail to win, it'll be consecutive seasons that they've failed to win any of their opening three fixtures at Goodison Park.


Everton rejected numerous approaches from Chelsea in the summer for John Stones, so naturally most of the attention will be on him in the first match after the transfer window. Everton conceded 24 goals in the 15 Premier League matches that Stones didn't feature in last season and just the 26 goals in 23 Premier League matches that he did rack up an appearance. John Terry received many plaudits during Chelsea title win but Stones matches up pretty well against the former England captain in a lot of areas, with the exception of goal scoring, though the Chelsea CB is the highest scoring member of Chelsea's current squad with 39 league goals.

Possible Line-Ups



Chelsea

Chelsea have made a dreadful start by their high standards to their title defence with just one win in four matches and defeats to Manchester City away along with Crystal Palace at home in the process and their total of four points after four matches is their worst start to a campaign since 1994/95 (3pts). Chelsea kept 17 clean sheets in 38 league matches last season but they're one of the seven teams who are yet to keep a clean sheet so far this season. The Blues have also conceded 2+ goals in each of their last four premier league matches for the first time since December 2006 and have only won two of their previous seven league matches stretching into last season. Eden Hazard in on the second longest drought of his career after failing to score in his last seven matches with his longest drought last nine matches.


Like he does against most teams, Jose Mourinho has an excellent record when he's come up against Everton. In 12 matches, he's tasted victory on eight occasions and only lost once.The only Premier League teams he has beaten on more occasions are Manchester United (9 in 20 matches), Tottenham (10 in 15 matches) and Liverpool (11 in 22 matches). Chelsea also have an excellent record against Roberto Martinez who has only beaten the West London club twice in 12 matches and he's conceded 6 goals or more in a match on three of those occasions. Having said all that three of the four fixtures between Martinez and Mourinho have ended in a 1-0 home win.

Nice one Shogs.

So the general approach of Chelsea's opponents this year seems to be get your left sided attacker to destroy Ivanovic.

Need a big game from Kev, if it's him out there.

Kathie: Is there a way to win?

We'll probably play Naismith out there.

Pace is what is needed. Terry is shit to bits and Cahill and ivanovic shown to be vulnerable. So, we need quick men out wide. I'd like to start with Lennon out right switching to del in the 2nd half. Hopefully we can get a full game out of Mirallas.

Have a good feeling about this game, atmosphere will be good so I hope an early Chelsea goal doesn't kill it like last year.

How do we usually perform after international breaks?

Just don't get caught on the break as often as we did last season and we will beat them . Showed in the game last year that we can open them up . Their shit start can't go on for ever but as long as it last one more game I don't mind . 2-1 to us . Lukaku and Barkley and a Stones OG for them .
