    Chelsea vs. Everton: An Alternative Preview

    Probable Lineups

    evertonChelsea (4-2-3-1): Cech, Ivanovic, Terry, Cahill, Azpilicueta, Ramires, Matic, Willian, Oscar, Hazard, Eto’o

    Chelsea will have an eye on their Champions League tie against Galatasaray next Wednesday, but should field a strong team to keep their heads above the other title challengers.  Jose Mourinho is sweating on the availability of captain John Terry, which could potentially cause a shift in the back line with Ivanovic partnering Cahill in the middle.  Chelsea are the only undefeated team at home this year and will look to keep it that way against Everton.

    Everton (4-3-3): Howard, Coleman, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, Barry, McCarthy, Mirallas, Barkley, Pienaar, Lacina Traoré

    Although they’re trailing their Merseyside rivals Liverpool by eight points, the Toffees are still hopeful of a Champions League spot and it’s games like these that Roberto Martinez’s men need to chalk up points.  The good news is that Romelu Lukaku is fit again after his ankle injury, however he won’t be able to play against his parent club.  Lacina Traoré will therefore lead the line, supported by Steven Pienaar and Kevin Mirallas on the wings, while Ross Barkley plays “in the hole”.

    What the fans are saying…

     

    Remember this?

    Chelsea and Everton went to a penalty shootout when they faced in other in the FA Cup fourth round several years ago.  A fan captures the last two shots before the finish.

    ivanovic

    Branislav Ivanovic always had an attacking threat as a defender, but has stepped it up lately – scoring two and assisting one – amassing double digit points hauls in the last three consecutive games.  Chelsea are also extremely solid at home, so clean-sheet points are also on the cards.

    Stats to get you head around…
