Frank Lampard has a troublesome task to propel Everton to their good old days and, as seen from his summer signings thus far, the Chelsea legend wants that task done sooner fairly than later.
Everton will certainly wish to completely erase a disastrous 2021–2022 season from their minds by doing a lot better this season, but their first hurdle isn’t really easy to hop over.
The Toffees host fellow Blues, Chelsea, of their 2022/2023 EPL opener at Goodison Park this Saturday (August sixth, 2022), heading into the sport without their newly lost striker Richarlison and now second striker, Rondon.
Everton’s Rondon served two games ( against Palace and Arsenal) of the 3-match ban he got for foul play during Everton’s clash with Brentford in May, so Saturday’s will probably be the ultimate.
Everton beat Palace after which got thrashed by Arsenal during Rondon’s absence, so it’s not clear whether Lampard’s side will probably be greatly affected by his absence this Saturday.
Each side have sensible latest signings that they may check out in the sport, but missing a forward as experienced because the Venezuelan in a match against a Chelsea side with game-changing Sterling will certainly hit Everton hard.
Frank’s side is enthusiastic and determined to flee the precarious position they found themselves in last 12 months, though.
That, coupled together with his latest signings who look to prove themselves to the Goodison Park faithful, might just give Chelsea their first upset this season, even without Rondon.
