Chelsea will be looking to move to the top of the Premier League table when they travel to Goodison Park to face off against Everton tonight.
Everton, after a brilliant start to the new season, have somewhat tailed off in recent weeks.
Indeed, the Toffees have won just one of their last seven matches in the league (D2 L4) and head into the weekend fixture on the back of a disappointing 1-1 draw against Burnley last week, following which Carlo Ancelotti’s men are ninth in the standings.
The Blues, meanwhile, have continued to go from strength to strength after a slightly dodgy start to the season.
Frank Lampard and his men have been in fine form of late, beating Leeds United 3-1 last week in the Premier League, which was followed by 1-1 draw against Krasnodar in the UEFA Champions League, making it 14 unbeaten in a row.
Currently third in the league table, Chelsea can move to the top with a win against Everton, with leaders Tottenham and second-placed Liverpool both scheduled to play on Sunday.
The corresponding fixture last season didn’t end too well for the Londoners though, as they lost 3-1 at Goodison.
Everton XI (3-4-3): Pickford, Holgate, Mina, Keane, Godfrey, Doucouré, Allan, Sigurðsson, Iwobi, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison
Chelsea XI (4-2-3-1): E. Mendy, James, Zouma, Silva, Chilwell, Kanté, Kovačić, Havertz, Mount, Werner, Giroud
Kick off is at 21:00 (GMT +1).
