"Everton’s a hard place to visit, but they’ve been really poor over the past month."Chelsea should play Kai Havertz through the centre - he brings it together for them. I don’t think he’s going to score more than 20 goals for them. Chelsea will have to rely massively on Mason Mount and their midfield to score, and they’re not renowned for that. Raheem Sterling has scored goals for Manchester City, but playing for Chelsea is a different kettle of fish."Read on here.Paul Merson backs Chelsea to overcome 'hard' Everton opening day Premier League game (Image: Sky Sports News)Share08:50Danyal KhanDumfries and Casadei updates Their agents have certainly been busy!Share08:49Sam HillCucurella deal 'close'Marc Cucurella's move to Chelsea is at the final stages, according to Fabrizio Romano.After medical completed, Chelsea and Brighton set to sign documents for Marc Cucurella deal. #CFCExclusive details ▫️ Chelsea will pay £55m fixed fee plus £7m add-ons.▫️ Levi Cowill will join Brighton on loan until June 2023.

This shows again the power and the leverage players and their agents have in the system, which for me is exaggerated, too much. We do a lot of investment to build clubs.
