Who should play in the pivot against Everton?
Chelsea play Everton this Saturday at 5:30pm (UK Time). No matter who you are Everton are never an easy team to play. In this article I will go through and anylyse each player’s chances of starting.
Two days ago Lampard made his 100th cap for England against Ukraine in a WC qualifier. He was fairly ineffective for most of the game, but he made a few decent passes and didn’t make many major mistakes. So should he start against Everton? Well, he has started five games in 3 weeks which is outrageous for a 35 year old. So far this season Lampard has been good but not great.
After a fantastic start to the season Ramires deservedly got back into the Brazil squad. Brazil played twice this week and winning both thier games impressively. Firstly, they thrashed Australia 6-0. Ramires got a goal and 2 assists in the game and he was the engine of the team. The second Brazil game was a hugely impressive 3-1 win over Portugal, I didn’t see the game but Ramires played the first 60 minutes. So far this season for Chelsea Ramires has been great. He has been very good in all of Chelsea’s first three games and according to Squaka he has completed the most passes in the Premier League.
Marco van Ginkel:
Marco van Ginkel, the best young talent in Holland, bought for an incredible £9m. Van Ginkel had a great pre-season and many were predicting him to be a regular this season, but he hasn’t started once which is quite dissapointing.
John Obi Mikel:
Nigeria played twice this week but Mikel was rested for the second one, he was named MoTM in the first. Mikel hasn’t played regularly for quite some time. He regularly recieves stick from Chelsea fans but I think he’s a world-class CDM and should be one of the first names on the team sheet every week.
So in conclusion I think that van Ginkel and Mikel should start in the pivot against Everton and be sure to comment and follow @CarefreeAdam on twitter.
