Right, that’s the international break sorted, now it’s time to get back to business.
And what a good game we have lined up ahead of us as we take on Everton this weekend, in what is the first of a rather daunting run of four fixtures for us, but if you look at the form in the table, this is arguably going to be our best chance to get a win out of the lot.
Our results in the past few games haven’t been too great, but the performances, not least the fact we’re not conceding at the rate that we once did at the start of the season, a credit I think to the defence as I briefly mentioned earlier today.
Will Scott Parker last the season?
So with that in mind, what sort of team is Scott Parker going to put out? I think that there isn’t really a lot that needs to be changed. As I said, things are starting to look up and hopefully a sense of familiarity will get the players clicking a bit more, and with that increased familiarity hopefully we can pull some results together rather than just ‘better performances’.
That’s why I think and hope Parker will go with an unchanged side from the one that played against West Ham United last time out:
Please note that I’m releasing this before Parker’s press conference, so this line-up could potentially change, for instance if someone got injured in training yesterday that we don’t know about, or if a player is back from injury.
