Thought would get this started, bored in work

Here we go again!

Our record at home to Chelsea is very strong - Won the last 4 meetings at Goodison, and something like 10 out of the last 12 at Goodison :eek: - we've also got the longest unbeaten run in terms of the opening game of the PL season, not losing since QPR at home in 2011/12 - probably just jinxed all of that, sorry :D

Hoping Gana is signed today/tomorrow to be ready to start on saturday, presume he'll be the only addition before the weekend now

------------ Pickford
------Godfrey Mina Tarkowski
---------Gana Doucoure
---McNeil-----Dominic Calvert-Lewin-----Gordon

Iwobi & Gray obviously alternative options in midfield, that's probably what i'd go with though


Player Valuation: £70m
I personally think this is a good fixture to open the season with.

Chelsea are a top, top team so will (should) have us focused from the off. We've got a really good recent record against them at Goodison.. but even still, a negative result shouldn't instantly mean doom and gloom either. Essentially it's an early Goodison acid test.

Referee: Craig Pawson.
Marc Perry, Scott Ledger.
Fourth official:
Graham Scott.
VAR: John Brooks.

Pawsons awful ffs. He was in charge of the Newcastle home game, blowing for a freekick at every oppurtunity and sending Allan off for a yellow card offence.
