Chelsea play host to Everton at Stamford Bridge on Monday evening, and this promises to be a crucial game between the two teams.

One point separate Chelsea and Everton, as Everton lie in 5th place. However, the Toffees have a game in hand, which makes this a very massive battle.

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is relishing this clash, and speaking ahead of facing Everton, he has warned of the dangerous former Real Madrid man James Rodriguez, who has been a massive addition for Everton.

“It is another situation where there is one point only between the teams,” Tuchel said. “That was the case before we played Liverpool too.

“Everton had a very strong start to the season and had a big win also at Anfield and they kept the momentum going [by beating West Brom on Thursday].

“They have a very strong squad, very physical and full of talent, with strong strikers and a dangerous no.10 with James Rodriguez.

“They have strong experienced players and a super-strong manager on the sidelines with Carlo Ancelotti who knows how to keep the momentum going.

“It is good that we have a big match next because that drives us, it gets us out of bed early and then it is a very natural process to be at our top level again.”
