Even without injured winger and Hershey native Christian Pulisic, Chelsea’s recent uptick is expected to continue Saturday when the West London outfit hosts Everton in a 1:30 p.m. EST Premier League match.
Chelsea remains right in the middle of the PL table in 10th position, but a 3-1 victory over Leicester City last weekend put Graham Potter’s crew on a two-game streak.
A Champions League Last-16 win over Borussia Dortmund means its three straight for Chelsea across all competitions. Pulisic, slow to return following a knee injury, has played sparingly in the last two matches.
Despite Everton’s recent 1-0 decision over Brentford – left winger Dwight McNeil scored the difference just 35 seconds into the run — the visitors will have a difficult time stopping a serious drought at Stamford Bridge. Everton has failed to record a victory in its last 27 EPL games at the home of the Blues.
