I think we'll get a result and there'll be a decent atmosphere...

The siren will be back and a certain player will be returning to Goodison for the first time since the little stunt be pulled to leave.

Plus, I think helps they've got Europa League in Kiev tomorrow. The tie is likely done but it's disruptive all the same.

As for us, Zouma can't play so Mina/Jagielka will have to come in.

Be interesting to see if he goes with Gomes or Schneiderlin. Reckon the rest of the side more or less picks itself.

Family get together, so hopefully pissed by K/O ……. and passed out in the spare bedroom …...

The result poll on here really shows our fragility as a fanbase. We were an inexplicable half an hour/Pickford performance away from a win last week, now it's all room and gloom again.

Chelsea are a good side but they're not brilliant, they lost at Bournemouth and Wolves and don't score loads away from home (least of the top 6). If the crowd get in it properly we're more than capable.

The problem is that this Everton team doesn't bounce back from a bad result. They go into their shells even more. Partly down to the players and partly down to the manager but it just seems ingrained now that we fold when things get difficult.

I think as supporters, we've come to expect the worse - hence the poll so far.

The lack of mental strength among this squad is certainly a problem. They all talk a good game in the week before a game, but too often when it comes to the crunch and showing something on the pitch in a time of need, we crumble.
