Chelsea v Everton

Postby Conner99 » Wed Feb 19, 2014 9:41 pm

Chelsea remain top of the Premier League despite a 1-1 draw with West Brom , a late goal by Victor Anichebe denied the Blues a win that would have taken them 4 pts clear at the top , instead the battle remains as close as ever with Arsenal , Man City and Liverpool all within 4 pts of the top .



Everton had their game against Crystal Palace called off due to building damage just 45 mins before kick off , it all means the match will have to be played sometime in the not too distant future ..it left manager Roberto Martinez not very happy ..he said about the postponed game ..i`m not happy at all"

I think this could be a tough game for Chelsea against a well organised Everton side who might do enough to earn a point?

Chelsea 1-1 Everton

they are proving to be hard to beat , but I think Chelsea will just have enough to get the odd goal and keep it at 1-0 until the end ..

Did you know that Mourinho's unbeaten home record as a Premier League manager now stands at 73 games (W57 D16).

Any comments or predictions?

Everton were a tad unlucky not to get a point at the recent encounter with us at WHL. In the first half they showed inventiveness and pace to keep the Spurs fans sweating. They fell away in the second half, and although our goal was a little fortunate, I always thought we looked better going forward. However, Everton are a team that are disciplined and do not wilt under pressure.

Chelsea are, I take no pleasure in saying it, a more balanced and complete side than Tottenham at the moment. They will pose more problems to the Toffee Men than we did.

Chelsea 3 Everton 1.

Chelsea v Everton ,firstly let me apologise for my tardiness ,BBC Sport
stated Traore was playing ,but he was withdrawn for some reason.

Chelsea have Side Show Bob out with a hip injury sustained whilst line dancing
with John Terry's mum and her relentlessly over active pituitary gland.

Chelsea on the attack right from the off with Hazard at the epicentre of most
of the invention ,as Willian hits a shot just wide of the post.

Piennar guilty of dawdling on the ball in these early stages,that said the South
African will a delightful ball slipped into the Chelsea box.

Yellow card for Oscar as he brings his studs into contact with Naismith's shin,
Everton coming into this game now with McCarthy seeing a lot of the ball ,and
Mirallas causing a degree of consternation amongst the Chelsea back line.

The board has gone completely nutz and is refusing to let me edit my own posts
apparently its saying I'm not allowed to edit someone else's posts .....Like I've
tried :shock:

Everton with 70 % of the possession at 28 mins in ,and Coleman has been especially
impressive with his defending.

Naismith denied a corner by incompetent officiating ,Everton's McCarthy is imperious
in the middle and has stroked the ball around like a Scholes in his pomp and majesty.

Save from Howard as Chelsea give us a glimpse of an attack ,and slowly
clawing the possession stats back with Eto'o looking dangerous.

A poor corner from Everton ,but a chance to redeem themselves with yet
another one ....Chelsea look awful ,but Willian has more steps than the
entire Jackson 5 as he wins a corner.

Lampard and his hump are being run ragged by McCarthy and Barry as Baines
gives him a breather with a leg tap.

Everton with a rapid counter attack results in some desperate and disparate
defending from a confused Chelsea back line ....Baines free kick takes us to
half time and its blocked by Lampard.

Everton awfully unlucky not to walk in at half time at least a goal to the good
and Chelsea lucky their fans no less about football than my wife.

Pretty good first half by Everton, again reminiscent of their game against the mighty Spurs in the first half. Lots of possession, chances created but no goals to show for it.

Hazard has been quiet for Chelsea, and Matic has not been mentioned much. Mourinho will need to give a decent half time talk to get his team out of second gear for this.

Pretty entertaining for a nil niller.

Ramires on, Oscar off and the second half is under way with Everton finally
returning to the pitch.

Piennar kicked as he attempts to shield the ball with his midriff ,Everton
started brightly again.

Piennar is just too comfortable with the ball at his feet ,as I say this Chelsea
surge forward with Eto'o and Lampard has two shots each blocked by Howard
and Distan respectively.... Chelsea pressing strongly now.

Stupidly conceded free kick and with which Willian takes and misses wildly.
Matic may as well be watching this at home for all the effort he has afforded
his team today.

Ramires with a shot less effective than Willians hair straighteners ,and Chelsea
fans suddenly realise they're at a football match with sporadic clapping.

Osman with a great strike saved by Cech,corner Everton ,comes to nothing as
they wander offside.

I really like what I saw from Everton so far.. especially Osman and Coleman with a very good performance so far..


I don't get why Mourinho still plays with Lampard and Terry :?
there is no space for them in my eyes when you still have options like Luiz, Schurrle and Ramires

Two top saves from Howard the second Banks like ,sweetest of balls from Ivanovic
as Eto'o misses narrowly. Torres on and Willian can return to his afro comb.

Barkley on and Osman sacrificed ,Mourinho gesticulates at the time wasting over
the substitution.

Torres with his first chance to run, offside though ,Everton defending for their
proverbial lives as Torres looks livelier than Louie Spence with an E down his
neck.

Eto'o removed whilst Shurrle introduced ,Chelsea have an abundance of riches
on that bench ,but that's his last allowed change ,as Salad looks disgusted at
not even being considered a side dish.

Torres walks away from the official who demands his presence in response to
his studs up challenge on McCarthy.....Mirallas shoulder barges Cahill as Chelsea
once again puff and pant in breaking down a rigid Everton defence.

Mirallas off and Deulofeu on ,could cause problems for Chelsea this ,as a lot
of Everton players hit the ground in a sign of Chelsea's frustration.

Torres should have scored ,even fails to win a corner ....its becoming an attritional
encounter now ,with both teams fighting the congestion in the middle of the park .

Deulofeu shows great feet with a little over 10 minutes to go ,and here comes
McGeady as Martinez makes evident his intentions to snatch all three points.

Closing minutes Barkley lofts a ball over the Chelsea defence but it falls to
a battling Cahill ,as Torres hits a shot that is more in danger of bothering
the mathematicians as its wildly off target.

Naismith has been a more than adequate deputy for Lukaku ,as Everton
fans sing a collection of their favourite songs....Chelsea fans have to be
the quietest fans ever ,Barkley thwarted by intelligent defending from
Terry as Chelsea fans roundly boo Naismith as he leaves the field hobbling.

At least we can rule out mass suicide as we finally hear the disgruntled
throng of Chelsea fans..... Its obvious they prefer booing as it takes
less of an outpouring of emotion :wink:

Ramires just wide as we hit the final minute of the 90 ,as Chelsea decide its
kitchen sink time. 5 minutes extra time now been added as Shurrle attacks.

fades out as Distan clears ,who has been phenomenal today ,Jagielka fells
Ramires as he drives forward .....free kick Lampard .....1-0 Terry.

Last few seconds as Everton pour forward with Deulofeu ,Matic heads away as
McGeady throws a cross into Distan away from Lampard ,corner Everton and
its harmless .....Chelsea take the three points.

You may want to change this post as Lampard and Terry just scored an inury time winner.
Thats why they are still important to Mourinho.

A little harsh for the Merseysiders, but you have got to put away your chances. Chelsea came alive second half, and dominated. Everton go away empty handed again, I'm not that bothered as it keeps them off our tails in the league.

FT

Chelsea 1-0 Everton
1-0 Terry 90+2

John Terry's late goal will keep the Blues at the top of the table.

Did Everton deserve a draw? Any comments on this result at the Bridge?
