Everton travel to Chelsea tomorrow looking to bring to an end of 24-years of futility at Stamford Bridge. The Toffees have failed to win there since 1994, and it’s only one of many such ignominious records against the top six sides.
Two games this season away at Arsenal and Manchester United offered a bit more hope, with awful refereeing decisions making the difference in both games. Tomorrow against Chelsea the task will be made harder against a side that is yet to lose in the Premier League this season.
Marco Silva for his part will continue to play his brand of attacking football, whether the Blues are at home or away, playing the bottom or top sides. This is what the fans wanted and this is what we’re going to get.
There’s a number of storylines going into tomorrow’s game, with the fitness of Richarlison and Eden Hazard in question, Ross Barkley facing his former side for the first time, and more.
