There are two undefeated teams remaining in the Premier League; Manchester City...and EVERTON!! After Chelsea’s loss to Liverpool on Friday, the Toffees moved into second place in the league.
Today’s match with Middlesbrough looks like a walk in the park on paper, but that makes it feel like a trap. Please, Everton, be awesome again today. Keep beating up on these “cupcake” teams and build as much of a cushion as possible.
Can this be the year they push back into the Champions League picture? It sure feels like it. Yes, the squad could stand to be a tad deeper, but the offense looks eminently dangerous and the defense is as solid as it was in the Moyes era.
Of course, one loss would completely shatter this confidence. So come on, you blues! Let us dream a bit longer!
