Chelsea continues to hold the Premier League lead, but it's getting tougher by the week to ignore Everton's red-hot start. The club, which has become notorious for its slow starts in recent seasons, currently sits three points off the pace in second place.
The biggest difference for the Toffees has been increased offensive production, mostly thanks to Nikica Jelavic and Marouane Fellaini, who has already matched his league goal total from last season. The duo has helped them stay ahead of the two Manchester powerhouses for now.
Everton's rival, Liverpool, got in the win column on Saturday, finally putting a little distance between itself and the relegation zone as the Reds try to rebound from a lackluster start. They are showing some signs of life at the very least.
Let's take a look at some of the other EPL news, preview the match of the week and make predictions for all of next weekend's matches.
