Everton Vs Chelsea Timeline
Whenever we play Everton we know we will have to give it our best. That’s why we have to know our lineups and how to play against them. Luckily, we can get the information we need to plan our game from this article.
Until Jorginho’s penalty, Chelsea were on a shaky start to the Premier League season. The Blues lost to Leicester City and Mason Holgate in their opening two games, but beat Everton 1-0. And it ended a four-match losing run at Goodison Park for Everton.
After a strong first half, Everton looked to be getting back into the game. They came close to scoring when Edouard Mendy saved a header from James Tarkowski. But they were unable to create any real opportunities in the second half.
Chelsea’s victory was a much-needed win after four defeats at Everton in their last five games. They were playing without their regular striker Richarlison, as well as defenders Marcos Alonso and Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Despite the defeat, Everton did show signs of improvement under Frank Lampard. They suffered an early injury to Ben Godfrey, and were missing Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Salomon Rondon. In addition, Yerry Mina was booked for arguing the penalty decision.
Neither team created much of a chance in the first half, with the lone noteworthy effort coming in the shape of a free-kick from Demarai Gray. The striker’s shot was wide after Thiago Silva’s deflection.
Known for his technique, vision and composure, Jorginho has earned a reputation as an intelligent midfielder, and has shown the willingness to switch style when required. He was a standout in Chelsea’s early season performances and will face Real Madrid in the second leg next week.
Everton were beaten 1-0 on Wednesday night, after Jorginho scored from a penalty spot to give Chelsea their first win away from home in five years. The defeat was made even more disastrous by injuries to defenders Ben Godfrey and Yerry Mina.
Aside from his goal, Jorginho’s contribution was two assists, as he provided a stunning first-time assist to Tammy Abraham at Watford. He also led Chelsea with three interceptions and logged Chelsea’s highest interception tally of the season.
He is not the most attacking threat from open play, but he has a strong work rate and can dictate the pace of the play in possession. He averages 62 passes per match, with a completion rate of 94%.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s injury
Having missed the vast majority of last season with injuries, Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin is in danger of missing the first game of the new season. He was withdrawn after just an hour against Leicester City at Goodison Park. This is a major blow for the Toffees as they have a number of strikers in their squad, including Alex Iwobi and Salomon Rondon.
It’s not yet clear how long Calvert-Lewin will be out for, but he’s likely to miss the first game of the Premier League season against Chelsea. He may also be out for the Aston Villa game, while Frank Lampard is also uncertain about how long the England international will be out for in the World Cup.
He’s been out for about two weeks after picking up a knock in training. It’s not yet certain whether or not he’ll be able to return to action immediately, but he could be ready by the end of October.
Despite not getting the best start to the season, Everton are still in with a chance of avoiding relegation. They will host Chelsea at Goodison Park on Saturday evening. The Blues are expected to win this match.
The last time Chelsea visited Everton, they won 1-0 thanks to a Richarlison goal. Everton have lost 12 of their 20 matches so far this season. It’s difficult to see Everton picking up another win. They are short on goals up top and are lacking in the final third. The Everton fans will be on their feet on Saturday, hoping for an upset.
Everton are a banana skin for Chelsea in recent seasons. They have conceded two or more goals in 10 of their 20 games so far this season. They also have a poor record on the road, winning only one of their last eight away games.
Everton have been hit by injuries in recent seasons. They have been without Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Tom Davies and Seamus Coleman. Marcos Alonso has asked for special permission to miss this game. Timo Werner and Armando Broja have both been linked with moves elsewhere.
