While most of the attention has been off the pitch at the chilly reception that Rafa Benitez is expected to receive at Goodison Park in front of the Everton supporters, there’s plenty of things on the pitch to discuss. Most importantly, a win for Everton will see them leapfrog over Chelsea into fourth place (and possibly even third place depending on Everton’s goal difference). A win for Chelsea will see them push back into third place. Needless to say, there’s a lot riding on this match for both teams.
In the second match of the day, it’ll be a deja vu moment for Djibril Cisse as the former Liverpool striker plays for Queens Park Rangers against his former club. Cisse will undoubtedly be just one of the storylines, but this could end up being a fascinating match especially since Reading, Southampton and Wigan are starting to create a gap between them and last placed QPR.
