Everton Set To Dint Mourinho’s Record

Everton midfielder Aiden McGeady says their winning mentality will be key when they face Premier League leaders Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

The Toffees registered a 1-0 win over the Blues in Goodison Park earlier this season and McGeady believes they are capable of ending Jose Mourinho’s unbeaten run at Stamford Bridge.

“I think (winning at Stamford Bridge) would send out a message that we’ve got to be taken quite seriously,” he said.

“I think we already are to be honest, having already beaten Chelsea at home this season, having beaten Manchester United away and having played well against the big teams.

“It would be nice to beat them home and away though. That would be great for us.

“I don’t think Chelsea have lost there under Mourinho for quite a while, so it’s going to be difficult.

“They’ve got a team littered with world class players, but I think our team’s quite underrated as well, so there’s every chance that we could do something there.”

Chelsea lead the race with 60 points, just one point ahead of Arsenal, after giving up their lead to play to a 1-1 draw against West Bromwich Albion in their last league encounter.

Roberto Martinez’ side on the other hand are in sixth place with 45 points, eight points behind local rivals Liverpool, who occupy the last spot in the top four.

The Merseyside club will be looking to return to winning ways, having lost 1-0 to Tottenham Hotspur in their last league outing.
