Everton have one final hurdle before they head to the international break. Once again, it is a trip to a Premier League title contender. In their opener, Chelsea were a disaster against Burnley at home. But they bounced back with a vengeance to top Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley last week.
The Toffees are flying high. They had a solid draw with Manchester City on Monday and followed it up by pushing into the Europa League group stage. However, the squad is struggling for fitness and could be missing both Morgan Schneiderlin (red card) and Idrissa Gana Gueye (injury). If that’s the case, it could be tough for Everton see much of the ball.
