Chelsea v Everton: Premier League – live | premier league
Something has definitely changed at Chelsea. Potter was filmed swearing, like a real person, while singing with fans at an event. But that was it Really mean? Barney Ronay gets to the bottom of this:
Not sure if you’ve seen this, and you’re not sure if you feel like gushing either, but if the answer to those questions is ‘no’ and ‘yes’, take a quick peek.
He’s been through a lot since stepping into the hot seat at Chelsea, and he’s even received death threats after a few poor performances, but Graham Potter seems to have found a rhythm now.
Karen Carney says this once stuttering Chelsea side are starting to play to the rhythm of their manager.
Sean Dyche has clearly seen something he likes and is starting the same team that beat Brentford.

Hello friends and welcome to this MBM of a game between two teams who have been feeling the blues for various reasons this season. Everton have produced a load of old slag and find themselves just a point above the relegation zone. Depending on how other results go, they could end the weekend at the bottom of the log.
Chelsea haven’t exactly lit up the spot either, but three straight wins for Graham Potter, along with progress to the Champions League quarter-finals, have left the manager in good spirits.
Three points won’t see them catapult the table (although they will edge Fulham in ninth who are occupied by the FA Cup). Still, rankings are less important right now than vibes and those have been good at Stamford Bridge lately.
My name is Daniel. Thanks for joining me. Drop a line if you feel like it.
Kick off at 5:30 p.m. Teams and more coming soon.
