That’s three wins on the bounce now for Chelsea following last weekend’s 3-1 triumph over Leicester City. The Blues were deserved victors, controlling the tempo of the match with 52 percent possession and some slick build-up play that hadn’t been seen in months.

Graham Potter finally has his squad humming again, and if videos from the club’s social media handles are anything to go by, the relatively large collection of players is gelling extremely well off the pitch. Hopefully, this positive vibe will continue to translate to the team’s performances, especially with Everton pulling up to Stamford Bridge this coming Saturday.

The Toffees have been a tricky opponent for the club from the capital as of late, taking points from seven of their previous 10 meetings. Sean Dyche’s appointment will surely discourage Chelsea supporters as well, as the red-headed hardman managed to frustrate the Blues on several occasions during his stint as Burnley manager.

I’m still pretty confident that the former European champions will be able to pull out the victory, but it certainly won’t be easy. They’ll need exceptionally creative, highly-productive outings from their numerous attacking options, and the same ruthlessness in front of goal that has finally come to pass in the last few matches.

There’s not much left to play for in the Premier League this season, apart from an outside shot at lesser European competition, but Potter will want his boys in their best form for the team’s remaining Champions League contests. Much of this squad is already accustomed to making an unexpected run in that tournament.
