Sky Sports football expert Charlie Nicholas believes Chelsea and Everton will not decide the winner at the Stamford Bridge (final score, 1-1).
Nicholas wrote: “I’ve done a lot of Everton under Carlo Ancelotti and he’s done a very good job, but there are times when his side haven’t actually played very well. I recall a game I covered at West Ham and in the late win over Watford where I felt they were slightly fortunate. They didn’t deserve it, but he’s got Dominic Calvert-Lewin scoring goals.”
“Everton are unpredictable as they’ve still got problems at the back, but Chelsea at home are so inconsistent. They sometimes seem to run out of legs. The sufferance that youngsters always bring is that after the great adrenaline in the early part of the season, they then feel the stress and the strain when results don’t go so well.
“Olivier Giroud has come into the team and been excellent, but they’re still too risky at the back. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Everton went and got something out of this game.”
