Chelsea would play Everton on Sunday at Stamford Bridge and former Liverpool striker Michael Owen expects the Blues to be too much for Everton at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
“I was impressed by the way the champions bounced back at Wembley last weekend,” Owen told BetVictor.
“It is hard to see how Everton can get anything in West London on Sunday given they faced Manchester City at the Etihad on Monday and, at the time of writing, are due to face Hadjuk Split in Croatia in a vital Europa League tie on Thursday evening.
“I was not surprised to see Wayne Rooney retire from international football earlier in the week after a magnificent and record-breaking career for the Three Lions – well played Wazza!
“Rooney has already shown enough for Everton this season to suggest he can help his boyhood team take the next step up the ladder – although I would be surprised if they got anything at the Bridge a ground where they have not won in the PL since November 1994.”
