Chelsea will be away to Everton at the Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon, and it’s a massive tie for the Blues.

The Toffees have sacked Marco Silva with a temporary coach Duncan Ferguson to take charge of the team on interim basis.

Despite Everton being in the relegation zone, Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas has revealed Chelsea will have a difficult game against Everton and has backed the home side to take all three points.

He told Sky Sports: “Marco Silva’s immediate replacement may be a temporary one, but it will be one that should give Everton a much-needed lift.

“I am not convinced by Chelsea’s defence, they looked uncomfortable at times against Aston Villa.

“Things haven’t gone Everton’s way under Silva, but they are a team of scrappers, and I see them battling their way to three points.”

Charlie Nicholas predicted a 2-1 win for Everton.
