On Saturday afternoon Jose Mourinho will take his Chelsea team to Goodison Park to face off against Roberto Martinez’s Everton. The corresponding fixture last season saw a Steven Naismith goal give Martinez the first victory of his Everton career. It was also the only defeat that Mourinho suffered against the rest of the top seven last season.
The Portuguese boss will know that this will be a tough test and that his team will need to raise their game if they are to maintain their 100% record in the Premier League. Chelsea have been solid if not spectacular in their two games so far, a 3-1 win at Burnley and a 2-0 victory against Leicester at Stamford Bridge.
It is highly probable that Mourinho will choose to name the same team for the third successive match. He may be tempted to throw in Ramires or Willian but neither Brazilian has looked overly impressive when they have come off the bench and Mourinho will be loathe to break up a winning team.
