Fixture in Focus Podcast – Everton vs Chelsea

Finally, the Fixture In Focus team broke their run of scoreless encounters last weekend as Arsenal edged out Manchester United in an intriguing contest for all the right reasons – what exactly do you analyse when both sides play well?

That being said, there was still some room for scrutiny, questioning whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s luck has finally run out and if Granit Xhaka’s goal was an error on David De Gea’s part.

Once reflection on last week’s Fixture In Focus is out of the way, host James Jones and regular sidekicks Christy Malyan and Chris McMullan turn their attentions to the key clash of the coming weekend.

We’re giving the FA Cup a miss this time to take a closer look at Everton vs Chelsea, a game between two clubs of curious similarities. Both have struggled to live up to expectations this season, and both employed managers last summer who are yet to win over the fan base.

The agenda then, includes whether Maurizio Sarri has managed to evolve Chelsea, commenting on the surprising professionalism of Idrissa Gueye, Jordan Pickford’s glaring similarities with Joe Hart, and Marcel Brands’ role in Everton’s troubled season. Check out the full episode below!
