Patrice Evra is backing Chelsea FC to bounce back to winning ways with a much-needed victory at home to Crystal Palace on Sunday.
The Blues head into the game after having slumped to their second-straight defeat in the Premier League following their 2-1 loss to Fulham on Thursday night.
The south west London side have struggled to find consistent form under new boss Graham Potter this season and the Blues’ poor run of results has caused them to drop down into 10th place in the table ahead of this weekend’s round of games.
As things stand, Chelsea FC are 10 points adrift of fourth-placed Manchester United and are facing a serious uphill struggle to force themselves back into contention for Champions League qualification.
Former Manchester United star Evra feels that Potter is struggling to get the best out of his team because most of the players were signed by previous managers, leaving his group looking like a collection of “individuals” rather than a team.
However, the ex-France defender feels that Chelsea FC will have enough to beat Crystal Palace – who are 12th and only three points behind the Blues – in front of their home fans on Sunday afternoon.
Writing in his column for Betfair, Evra said: “I think Chelsea will win. People are also disappointed with Chelsea right now, everyone expects more for Chelsea, expects more for Graham Potter.
“When you look at the Chelsea side, he didn’t sign those players. Let’s be honest, you have to be clear, these aren’t his players. He came and he needs to fix that team, there’s no soul and they aren’t together.
