Report: What Everton fans are planning to do just before the game against Chelsea on Sunday
Everton supporters have reportedly formulated a plan to rally help rally their team against Chelsea on Sunday.
According to inews, ‘high-profile’ fan groups will line the route to Goodison Park in order to welcome the home side’s coach with an atmospheric sense of unity.
Frank Lampard is fighting a losing battle
Frank Lampard’s men need all the advantages they can take right now.
At the time of writing, the Toffees are 18th in the Premier League, two points adrift from safety.
They could be even closer to relegation once the final whistle blows at the weekend.
And sadly for Lampard, there will be no get-out-of-jail-free card handed to him by his former group.
Chelsea are still on the hunt for confirmed Champions League qualification, with tonight’s contest against Manchester United potentially pivotal in the race for Europe.
Win this evening and the Blues can feel a little more comfortable heading into the encounter with their record goalscorer.
But lose at Old Trafford and the pressure cranks right up once again.
A massive afternoon for Chelsea and Everton
Meanwhile, anything other than three points will simply not do for Everton.
All they’ve really got going for them at the moment is the game in hand they have over the other relegation strugglers.
Also, after Chelsea, their remaining fixtures are all certainly winnable, if not potentially hazardous.
A trip to Leicester City awaits, with Watford and Brentford not far over the horizon.
Crystal Palace then travel to Merseyside on the penultimate weekend of the season, leaving Arsenal the last opponents to take a crack at the Toffees.
Lampard’s players proved they have the fight and commitment necessary to avoid the drop in the derby day defeat to Liverpool last Saturday.
What they are currently lacking is that killer edge going forward, whilst also struggling to keep goals out at the other end of the field.
If we could sacrifice a win for you, Frank, we would.
