Tonight’s early EPL Week 3 match is between Chelsea and Everton which is shaping up to be a quality game. Chelsea haven’t looked dominant early this season and the inclusion of Rooney at Everton has given them a spark. Should be a close match.
When: Sunday, August 27, 10.30pm (AEST)
Where: Stamford Bridge, London
Conte certainly was clever in how he adapted and Cesc Fabregas will be a little nervous as to whether he just waltzes back into the starting line-up after a great result against Spurs.
David Luiz showed his versatility but I do expect him to slip back into the defensive three
Fabregas does add some real experience in the middle of the park and Conte will be pleased he is available again.
Former Swansea star Gylfi Sigurosson can be a star for Everton for sure.
He can play in all the attacking areas with a great goal scoring record.
His most effective area is behind a striker and this is where he also scores most of his goals.
Everton have always had players that are good at breaking from deeper positions and getting goals.
It seems to really suit the style and energy of how Everton play.
KEY BATTLE: Wayne Rooney v David Luiz
Rooney has started off how I think he would have, proving to plenty of people he’s still a top drawer.
Luiz is a very good player but at times has had defensive meltdowns.
Thankfully he looks the type of player that has no issue with confidence and always seems to bounce back.
This will be a great tussle and the win can go with David Luiz because I expect Chelsea to come out on top. That though, might not keep Rooney off the scoresheet.
Chelsea are in the groove after a great win against Spurs and they won’t be shocking their home fans twice in three rounds.
Back to winning ways and a pretty solid start to the season.
Chelsea at $1.40
Draw at $4.75
Everton at $8.00
Tip: Chelsea at $1.40
Correct score: Chelsea 2-0
