Last season, Everton barely made it out of the relegation zone and it’s safe to say that they will try anything to avoid being in that position once again. They’ll be opening up the 2022-23 Premier League season on Saturday at Goodison Park, where they’ll face Chelsea, the team that finished 3rd last year.
While reaching 3rd is nothing short of great, Chelsea wasn’t really close to either Liverpool or Man City as they were 7 wins behind 2nd place. Chelsea come into this season with high hopes of closing the gap on the top-2 with signings like Raheem Sterling, which might be enough to do the job.
The interesting part about this matchup is that despite the huge gap between them in the standings, Chelsea have lost their last four trips to Goodison Park. But this time around might be a different story as Everton probably has to play Dele Alli up front if Calvert-Lewin fails to recover from an injury he picked up in training, as the other option up front, Rondon, is suspended.
One of the biggest changes Everton made during the off-season was reinforcing their defense with James Tarkowski, who is coming off a 6-year run with Burnley. He has looked like a much-needed addition, organizing Everton’s defense and leading by example, which might end up giving them the upper hand against Chelsea if everything goes the right way for them.
On the other hand, Chelsea went on a shopping spree and bought Raheem Sterling from Man City for £50m, while also spending a sizable fee on 31-year-old French defender Kalidou Koulibaly from Serie A’s Napoli. Conor Gallagher just returned from a successful loan at Crystal Palace and he is hoping to get a chance to prove his worth and impress all the Premier League spectators this season.
