Chelsea will be looking to make it four successive victories when they face Everton on Saturday.
The Blues recorded a 3-1 win over Leicester last weekend, which followed up successes over Borussia Dortmund and Leeds as they aim to mount a late top four push. Graham Potter‘s men sit 11 points behind Tottenham in the Premier League table but do have a game in hand on Spurs, meaning a late blitz is not out of the question.
However, Chelsea will have to be at their best to beat a stern test in Everton, who have been in better form of late since the appointment of Sean Dyche. In the meantime, Mykhaylo Mudryk has been backed up by Ian Wright, while Romelu Lukaku’s future is up in the air despite Inter Milan‘s Champions League qualification.
Wright on “unfair” Mudryk pressure
Ian Wright has admitted he feels “sorry” for Mykhaylo Mudryk after the Ukrainian made the big-money move to Chelsea amid transfer interest from Arsenal.
The 22-year-old all looked set to join the Gunners in January, only for Graham Potter’s side to swoop in with a higher offer in the region of £87million – which Shakhtar Donetsk accepted.
