The start to season for the Premier defending champions has been surprising disappointing as they have managed to gulp only four points out of a possible nine.
The defensive line of the Blues have been culpable in most of their matches – they have conceded nine goals in four matches and this stats portends a serious threat for a team that was earlier tipped as title contenders. Last season, Chelsea conceded 32 goals throughout the course of the season.
Meanwhile, there are also key players sidelined with injuries – Oscar and Ramirez are still short of match fitness, Traore equally got knocked during the international break, and the latest is Thibaut Courtois sidelined with knee injury.
With the recent additions of the summer transfer window, the major distortion in the line-up against Everton will be at the defense line: Here is how the Blues will likely line-up.
Defenders: Azpilicueta, Cahil, Zouma, Baba
Midfielders: Matic, Fabregas, Willian
Forwards: Pedro, Costa and Hazard.
A trip to Goodison Park has never been easy for the Blues. Having lost two matches already, Mourinho is looking to redeem the Image of Chelsea as genuine title contenders. Three points or nothing else for the ‘Special One’.
