Everton and Chelsea play to a 0:0 draw as both sides had opportunities to score but neither one could get into the back of the net. Toffees have still only ever won once at Stamford Bridge in Premier League play.

Everton returns to action following next week's international break on November 24th at home vs. Cardiff City.

Everton wins 1:0 at home over Cardiff City. Lone goal of the match came in the 59th minute by Gylfi Sigurdsson. Fourth straight win at home for the Toffees and fifth in their last seven matches of any type of competition.

Everton travels to Anfield for the Merseyside Derby next Sunday. Month of December is gonna be tough as they have, in addition to the Merseyside Derby, an away match at Manchester City and a home match vs. Spurs.

Squirrel, sounds like City is going to go after U.S. goalkeeper Zack Steffen.

That 3:0 defeat to RBNY must have recalled memories from the glory days of Willy Caballero.

That said, I do like Steffen. . .is he a PL-level GK? That I don't know. But I do think he is an international-level GK, which is an entirely different beast. FWIW.

Yeah I think I saw somewhere that they'll bring him in and then loan him out to a team like Girona in La Liga to get some experience playing in Europe.

I also presume with the Berhalter hire that Steffen will quickly have the opportunity to claim the #1.

Man United and City have both booked passage into the Champions League Round of 16, while Liverpool and Spurs are still pending. Spurs has clinched a Europa League knockout spot if they fail to advance, which is a strong possibility as they are level on points with Inter Milan and having to visit Barcelona on the final group stage match day.

The FA Cup Second Round will take place this weekend (the final round before all Championship and PL clubs are entered into the draw). Sunderland, now toiling away in League One travels to fellow League One side Walsall. The Second Round draw also includes the first match between Welsh clubs in the Cup (Wrexham vs. Newport County) since 2006.

Didn't get a chance to see the whole match with the early start time. Manchester City defeated Everton 3:1. 2 goals by Jesus with another by Sterling for City while Calvert-Lewin scored the lone goal for the Toffees.

Everton returns home to play Spurs next Sunday in the final Premier League match before Christmas.
