SAM ALLARDYCE has backed his former club Everton to break into the top six this season and finish above struggling Manchester United and Chelsea.
The Toffees are above both Premier League rivals heading into the first international break, with Marco Silva's side sitting sixth in the table.
“I think Everton should break into the top six and if they’re going to break in, this is the season to do it,”Allardyce told talkSPORT.
“You’ve got the difficult situation at Chelsea and I feel at Manchester United as well.
“United have gone even younger than Chelsea have with their squad this year; they’ve trimmed their squad down to the smallest number of experienced players I’ve probably ever seen.
“I think Man United might find breaking in a bit of a struggle, so will Chelsea, so that gives an opening and an opportunity for a team like Everton.
“I don’t think Wolves will do it because they’re in Europe for the first time in a long, long time and that will take a toll on the squad, as we saw with Burnley last year. It’ll be difficult for them.”
CHELSEA are set to offer Emerson Palmieri an improved contract, according to reports.
The left-back, 25, has impressed new boss Frank Lampard this season, playing every minute thus far.
And according to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Blues want to reward him with a better deal.
Emerson is currently tied down until 2022 but Chelsea want to give him an extra year and boost his wages from around £67,000 per week to more than £86,000 per week plus bonuses.
CHELSEA have reportedly started to discuss fresh contract terms with left-back Emerson Palmieri.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nico Schira, the Blues want to tie the ex-Roma ace down until 2024.
Emerson, 25, has started all four Premier League games this season.
