EVE Vs CHE Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Everton’s early honeymoon period curtails abruptly as the side finds itself in the midst of a turmoil.
After taking a runaway lead in the opening exchanges of the Premier League, Everton’s new signings are slowly being introduced to the harsh reality of the Premier League. Gone is the side which was tearing teams into shreds with the club slipping all the way down into 9th spot with just the one win in its last four matches.
Managing only a 1-1 draw with Burnley the last time around, Everton know things have to change fast for them. Much like the previous season, a lack of proper defensive gameplan from Ancelotti is costing the side with the team failing to stave attacking plays to dole out mundane performances.
And this paper thin defence can end up costing the side once again today when the club welcomes high flying Chelsea. Unlike Everton. Chelsea have picked up speed as the season has run its race, a club which is going for the sucker punch in every tie.

Unbeaten in their last 17 matches, Chelsea will go onto further that spree to 18 today as they capitalise on Everton’s absurd defensive setup.

Top Goal Scorer

- Werner: 4 Goals
Jordan Pickford is bound to concede today but it’s the likelihood of the saves he’ll accrue from Chelsea’s barrage of shots which see us opt for the Everton man.
Chelsea finally saw their immaculate cleansheet spree be curbed against Leeds United but that does little to dissuade us from opting from a trio from the side. The club has emerged with four cleansheets in its last five fixtures, a side fast emerging as one of the most stringent backlines this season.
Along with that, CB Kurt Zouma now has four goals to his name to make him the first pick from the club. Reece James who got an assist the last time around will join up along with Ben Chilwell.
Everton on the other hand will see the imperious Ben Godfrey be our pick in this slot.
He’s yet to fully brush off an ongoing injury but Ziyech’s injury means Christian Pulisic should get an outing in the playing 11 today after he scored against Leeds United. The tenacious N’Golo Kante is back doing what he does best to see the midfielder close the duo from the visiting side.
Everton’s versatile Abdoulaye Doucoure will be nailed down in our setup from the home team.
Although Chelsea have made their backline a citadel this term, if there’s one player who can score against the club, its Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Everton’s top scorer with 11 goals to his name, he’s scoring in every match to see him retain his place in our side.
With four goals in his last two appearances, Olivier Giroud didn’t need a case to be built around him. Timo Werner’s assist for Pulisic’s goal sees him give Giroud company.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Werner’s four goals see him captain our side while Giroud is the vice-captain.
Pickford, Godfrey, James, Kurt, Ben, Kante, Pulisic, Doucoure, Dominic, Giroud, Timo
