England: Premier League
Match start: 14:30 (GMT+2)
It was hardly to imagine such situation three months ago at the end of last season when Chelsea after one year break had returned its champion’s title. Back then the current coach of the blues Antonio Conte was the idol for everyone.
But now the situation is absolutely different. And current idol is now on the edge of early dismissal. And the most probable successors of the famous Italian coach-champion are Thomas Tuchel, Luis Enrique and Rafael Benitez who is absolutely dissatisfied with his current position in Newcastle.
A spark will kindle a flame!
To tell the truth when Chelsea has won in the previous champions’ race Antonio Conte began to proud himself and even he didn’t control his actions and deeds.
He has even managed to put in a temper calm and even-tempered Roman Abramovich. Even the away match of Chelsea over Tottenham (1:2) at Wembley didn’t stop the management of the club. And now all they need is the only and last reason in order to give the final verdict.
The Toffees of Ronald Koeman
And such reason can be delivered according to the results of the next match between Chelsea and Everton.
According to the calendar schedule the team of Ronald Koeman will play the second away match in a row at the opponents’ arena. Let us remind, that last Monday Everton has won one point at Etihad Stadium during the match against super star team of Josep Guardiola (1:1).
And now Wayne Rooney, Gylfi Sigurðsson, Leighton Baines and their partners had come to Stamford Bridge to play new match against Chelsea. Winless streak of the Toffees at home arena of the champion is one of the longest in English football and counts 23 years, since 26th of November, 1994 (0:1). Will the second by its status football club from Manchester be able to upset the hosts and dismiss Antonio Conte by their victory?
