It’s F.A. Cup weekend and one of the tastiest ties of the 4th Round is at Goodison Park where the Toffees play host to the Blues of south west London. Chelsea could break a record this season if they were to win a 3rd success F.A. Cup – it’d be the first time since Blackburn Rovers in 1880’s. Both teams are in top form currently with Everton being undefeated since New Year’s Day whilst Chelsea have scored 13 in their last 3 games and conceding none. This should make a tasty PickLive game considering the form of both teams.
David Moyes’ only injury worry is over forward Victor Anichebe while Tim Cahill is still away with Australia on International duty. The top 3 PickLive players for Everton so far this season are Mikel Arteta, Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellani with 78, 65 and 62 points respectively. Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti may welcome back Frank Lampard who missed out on their 4-0 win at Bolton last Monday. The Blues’ top PickLive points scorers are Michael Essien, Flourent Malouda and John Terry but with four different goal scorers in their last victory it’s going to healthy headache to pick three players for this game. You can never rule out the likes of Didier Drogba getting on the score sheet despite his poor form this season.
Everton are undefeated in their last 3 Premier League games against Chelsea but have not beaten them in the Cup since 1956, in the 5th Round. With both teams being in top form of current I believe it is going to be a very close encounter and I can only see the odd goal being the decider, possibly a score draw.
My three players to pick for this game would be Didier Drogba, Flourent Malouda and Leighton Baines. Care to differ? Then prove me wrong and use your PickLive FREE TRIAL and see how you score in what will be a thrilling Cup game!
