Well, then, this is a must-win wouldn't you agree? A run of three consecutive grossly underwhelming performances has forced most to re-examine whether or not Chelsea is as good as we all thought. A win against an injury-depleted Everton side short on confidence probably won't go a long way in answering that question. A defeat would, though.
Chelsea on the wane? Carlo isn't hearing it.
Essien is out for a month. Deco will miss out, too (personal). Add these two to the ongoing absentee list. Still, Didier Drogba will feature; isn't that all you need to know? Word.
Tim Cahill is suspended for Everton. The Toffees will be missing nearly a first-team XI: Distin, Yobo, Neville, Arteta, Osman, Anichebe, Jagielka...
Relevant questons: 1. How do you see it going? Anelka-Drogba is too much of a juggernaut for Everton's motley crew at the back -- I like 2-0 to the Blues. 2. How is it going? I don't know, the match hasn't started yet.
What do you think? What do you feel? Keep me updated on it all right here.
