Everton v Chelsea

Postby Conner99 » Wed Sep 11, 2013 8:20 pm

Everton are still unbeaten so far in the league but a third successive draw leaves news Toffees boss Roberto Martinez waiting for his first win of the season , he will be disappointed they failed to take advantage of the possession they had and should Everton fail to win against Chelsea the pressure will slowly start to build on Martinez as the fans expect their club to be significantly higher up the table .


Chelsea are sitting comfortably in second place in the table , just 2 pts behind leaders Liverpool , after the much talked about attempt by Jose Mourinho to sign Wayne Rooney from Man Utd ..it never happened , and the `happy one` will have to use the players he has now to continue his quest for a second spell of success at Chelsea .

Chelsea and Mourinho will be ready to exploit the space on the flanks
Everton afford teams when they play a high line. I just don't see anything
other than a slender Chelsea victory with Everton just getting picked off
on the break. ... I don't believe Martinez knows any other way of playing.
I just cant see him tampering with his tactics,after all he's virtually told
his team like he did Wigan he expects them to keep the ball and play high
tempo football......Albeit from Pienaar and the recently acquired McCarthy
I'm not entirely certain Everton have the personnel to fully accomplish this.

0-2 Chelsea

Its a shame that Lukaku won't be able to play for Everton against his parent club as I can't see how else the Toffees will score against them.

Everton 0-1 Chelsea

Did you know that should Everton fail to win this match, it’ll be only the fourth time
in the last 43 seasons that the Toffees have not won any of their first four league games of a season.

Any more comments or predictions?

Chelsea's Ramirez gifts Everton the possession ,they go straight up field
and Osman's cross finds the head of Jelavic ,and he loops it in for Naismith
who nods it in with relative comfort .

Everton 1 Chelsea 0

Chelsea could and should have been 2 goals to the good, Eto with two glaring
misses by his standards...I expect Mourinho to bring Torres on for Eto ,and
maybe bring Oscar on to add a touch more fluidity to their midfield.

I'd love to be in the Chelsea dressing room right now to hear Mourinho's half time team talk!

He looked a touch nonplussed with his teams first half profligacy in front of goal.
Definitely think we will see some changes in the second,I honestly cant see him
persisting with the seriously off the pace Eto.

All Chelsea ,but the game is passing Eto by in my opinion,who is looking a
shadow of his former self....Hazard extremely well marshalled by Distan .

Everton defending resolutely here,Chelsea resorting to just lumping balls
into the box.

Everton playing some delightful football now Mirallas whipping in some lethal
looking crosses,but Gareth Barry has been the difference for Everton,time
after time he has made some telling interceptions.

David Luis cynically throws Mirallas to the floor to prevent the risk of
being completely skinned by the Belgian. sumptuous ball from Barkley.

Kitchen sink time from Chelsea

Barkley jinking his way through the Chelsea defence once again blatantly stopped
On the basis of this performance he has the potential to be some player if they
can keep hold of the lad.

Couple of seconds left .......Good win and a strong performance.

FT

Everton 1-0 Chelsea
1-0 Naismith 45'

I also thought Ross Barkley was excellent today and he is my man of the match.

I just don't think this German Schurrle is good enough to play for Chelsea on a regular basis.

Any comments on todays result?

I must say also how well Gareth Barry did on his debut for Everton although he did commit quite a few fouls during game.

What do you think about the debut for Eto'o? He did seem to miss several chances but may need time to adjust to the PL.
