Chelsea vs Everton: Mourinho closing in on 90 games unbeaten
It’s Chelsea vs Everton tomorrow afternoon at Stamford Bridge, and a win for the Blues would see them temporarily extend their lead at the top of the table.
The Blues boss’ record makes a mockery of professional modern day football, and as long as he maintains the run, Stamford Bridge seems as vulnerable as a bear-trap.
Domestically speaking, from open play, Jose seems unbeatable at the Bridge.
Chelsea have come mightily close to dropping the ball a few times however, with Eden Hazard’s dramatic late penalty against West Brom in November arguably the nerviest moment of all.
A little further back, during Jose Mourinho’s first tenure as Chelsea boss, an excellent Arsenal side were denied victory in West London thanks to Michael Essien’s famous late pile-driver, which hung in the air almost endlessly after leaving the Ghanaian’s boot, before swerving into the top right corner of Jens Lehmann’s goal.
Everton will provide stiff competition on Saturday, but they will be without the ineligible Romelu Lukaku, with giant striker Lacina Traoré set to lead the line for the Toffees.
The returning John Terry will have to be at his best alongside Gary Cahill to keep him at bay.
