Everton vs. Chelsea: Premier League – Match Preview

Chelsea will look to continue their excellent recent run when they travel to face an Everton side with just one win in their last seven.

Everton were held to a 1-1 draw away at Burnley last weekend, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin again among the goalscorers.

Robbie Brady had opened the scoring for Burnley inside of three minutes, however they couldn’t hold on.

Chelsea rallied from an early goal down to ease past Leeds United, with Kurt Zouma scoring his fourth of the season in a 3-1 win.

A heavily rotated Chelsea side were held to a 1-1 draw by FC Krasnodar in the Champions League.

Team news
Everton are struggling in the full-back position, with Lucas Digne definitely out and Seamus Coleman a major doubt.

Mason Holgate may again be among the substitutes after Ben Godfrey and Yerry Mina were preferred at Turf Moor.

Callum Hudson-Odoi and Hakim Ziyech are set to miss out for the Blues, meaning Timo Werner may get a stay of execution in the side despite some poor form.

Olivier Giroud and Matteo Kovacic are set to start ahead of Tammy Abraham and Kai Havertz here.

Expected starting XI’s
Everton (3-4-3): Pickford; Godfrey, Mina, Keane; Davies, Allan, Doucoure, Iwobi; Rodriguez, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison
Chelsea (4-3-3): Mendy; James, Silva, Zouma, Chilwell; Kovacic, Kante, Mount; Werner, Giroud, Pulisic
