Chelsea vs Everton Preview

Chelsea vs Everton

Competition – EFL Cup

Stadium – Stamford Bridge

Date: 25th October 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Chelsea may have won their game over the weekend against a spirited Watford side but that was not the best performance and they almost lost the game.

They raced to an early lead but were 1-2 down before a late treble from Batshuayi and Azpilicueta helped them secure a 4-2 win.

The Blues are expected to make changes with the likes of Batshuayi and Willy Caballero in line to make starts.

They are not always at their best defensively at home and have conceded 10 goals in their last 10 home games with no clean sheet in over a month.

Everton may have invested more than 130 million over the summer but their season has not met up with the high expectations that investment created as Ronald Koeman has paid the ultimate price as he has been sacked.

They started the season good defensively but struggling for goals and while their goal scoring record has improved, their defence have been far too generous too and that was on shown as they were outclassed by Arsenal 2-5 over the weekend.

With their caretaker manager taking over the game for the first time we expect a strong line up as well as a new fighting spirit.
