Tim Howard and Everton have seen two leads disappear in their first two games of the English Premier League season, and the search for that first win of the campaign will only get tougher as the Toffees square off today against Chelsea.
Jose Mourinho’s side is off to a perfect start, and will head to Goodison Park looking to go 3-0 by beating an Everton squad that looked impressive against Arsenal before squandering a 2-0 lead and settling for a 2-2 tie last week.
In Italy, Serie A kicks off this weekend with a slate of matches led by Roma’s date with Fiorentina. Meanwhile, Germany, Schalke 04 will look to try and hand Bayern Munich a rare Bundesliga loss when they meet today. In France, AS Monaco and Lille meet in what should be a good match-up.
In MLS, the Portland Timbers and Vancouver Whitecaps face off in a Western Conference match-up with major playoff implications. Both teams are fighting for the fifth and final playoff spot in the West. In the Eastern Conference, Toronto FC is set to face New England in another match with major playoff implications.
