After the long and quite boring international break, the English Premier League is back in action. Week Eight features some great games, including the Liverpool-Manchester United derby and Newcastle United facing Tottenham Hotspur.

And, of course, there's Chelsea versus Everton.

Blues fans will definitely remember last season's encounters with the Toffees.

The first, at Stamford Bridge, ended 1-1 with Jermaine Beckford equalizing in the last minutes. The second meeting was in the FA Cup Fourth Round at Goodison Park in which a lackluster Chelsea side managed to obtain a replay following a 1-1 draw.

The replay, as many Chelsea fans will remember well, ended in utter despair. The Londoners were dominant throughout but weren't able to find a goal. The match went into extra time where Frank Lampard finally found the back of the net. But, in the last minute of play, Leighton Baines scored a curling free-kick to send the game to penalties, where Everton won.

But Chelsea's poor results against the Merseyside team kept going. Carlo Ancelotti's last game in charge came at Everton, where the Pensioners were all over the place and lost 1-0.

Not a good year against Everton (two draws, two losses). But Chelsea face the Toffees this Saturday and will hope to avenge last season's defeats.
