Spurs shouldn’t expect Dele Alli payouts too soon and Everton are damned

There are two ways to lose a match: the normal route and the Everton method. More injuries and Dele Alli should officially retire.

A lot can change in three months. When Everton and Chelsea last met in May, Richardson and Timo Werner led respective lines. Alex Iwobi played at the wing-back to ensure there was a central midfield spot for Fabian Delph. Antonio Rudiger marshals the guest defense.

Equally, much has remained the same. Everton remain prone to both inexplicable mistakes and frustrating injuries and their boundaries are clearly evident. Chelsea are still a great team as they are close to falling back in the pack with the leaders joining.

and that’s it scary 1-0 winThe difference between victory and defeat is so thin that it becomes difficult to avoid outcome bias. Everton had nine shot 17 at the end of last season and won. He made eight attempts for 15 at the start of the campaign and lost.

But some things can be known from the opening match itself. For example, Frank Lampard really needs to clean up the bad juju around Goodison Park. Ben Godfrey in the first half and Yeri Mina in the second half with injuries to an already frequently injured team lost.

The former was hoisted by Petard of his own wrong back pass. That it got out of the game, only for Jordan Pickford to attack a takedown at Kai Havertz and encourage Godfrey to make a disappointing modification, only to add to the sheer Everton of it all.

Pepper-mâché Yeri Mina joined Godfrey in the treatment room in the middle of the second half, his left ankle struggling under the heavy weight of the legend.

It is expected that Lampard kept the script he used for most of last season as those failures, combined with a shocking tackle from Abdoulaye Doucoure to concede the decisive penalty, led to a continuation of 2021/22. Felt like

Such a fate becomes a deadly mix with a stuttering summer transfer window and a coach caught between what he wants to do And what can he do? Be it down to Lampard’s own foibles or his squad, Everton can only compete up to a point. His game plan is until it works.

He made the real note much less valuable. James Tarkowski made a fine save from Edouard Mendy and Demarai Gray had a shot blocked by Thiago Silva at the break, but Chelsea were more troubled by those intermittent Goodison roars that Everton actually conceded.

His striker position is particularly disappointing. Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Salomon Rondon cannot be trusted for various reasons.

Anthony Gordon was positioned as a nominal centre-forward against Chelsea, but what he offers in effort and work-rate he is lacking in the 21-year-old – notably Cesar Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva and Kalido Koulibaly. As against experienced defense.

dele alli was Touted as a possible solution by Lampard But a moment’s delay ended the last few years of his career. Nathan Patterson strikes a rare coulibaly mistake to launch a counterattack, which slips Allie.

Instead of hitting the shot first, his shattered confidence was betrayed by a heavy touch as he nearly dealt it himself before he took the ball out for a goal kick while lying on the ground.

In his case, it may be that the form is temporary and the class is permanent. Players in his first three Tottenham seasons have, for all intents and purposes, been retired. Jose Mourinho may be tomorrow’s manager for some but he suggests Alli’s brother replaced him years ago.

The first element of their likely total £40m fee Tottenham is due when Allie plays his 20th Everton game. Danielle Levy will hardly be refreshing its NatWest app crazily.

Chelsea should be content to control that game in tough conditions, given the atmosphere. Everton were fine but to count on having three worse teams for the second consecutive season is troublesome to request an appointment. New signs are imminent but they will have to run on the ground – just try not to hurt yourself doing so.
