Chelsea are ‘nearly flawless’ and will ‘run away’ with the league, according to Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard.

Jose Mourinho’s side are unbeaten so far this season and are four points clear at the top of the table. However, although Howard is confident Chelsea will win the league, he does not think they will match the Arsenal ‘Invincibles’ from 2004.

The Everton stopper told ESPN: "Man, they're like a buzzsaw. I think they are going to run away with it. Do I think they'll go undefeated? No, but they'll go mighty close.”

"I think they are going to run away with it. Do I think they'll go undefeated? No, but they'll go mighty close"

Almost flawless

And the Everton stopper believes they are reaping the rewards for the patience shown last year.

"They're just strong front to back, like I've almost never seen before, quite nearly flawless.

“Jose Mourinho came in last year and continued to build and build and build, and this is what it was for. It was for the team that he puts out right now."

Meanwhile Howard’s side have had an mediocre start to campaign but Everton’s number one is confident results will start to will pick up.

Everton boost

"I think we got off to a slow start, but this season seems to be so crazy compared to the other ones.

"We're going to be OK. We play a great brand of football. We're a tough match for any team so I'm not worried about us at all.”

Fourth-placed West Ham are the visitors to Goodison Park this weekend and Howard admits he has been surprised with their form. Sam Allardyce's side sit fourth at the moment, having amassed 18 points, whereas Roberto Martinez's Toffees are 10th, and won't even level with their opponents should they take home three points.

"Hats off to West Ham, they've had a brilliant star.

"Certainly, a little bit unexpected, but they're there on merit. They've played really good football this year.”
