Predicted 4-3-3 Chelsea XI to face Everton: Gonzalo Higuain to lead the line

Chelsea XI to face Everton

Chelsea follows up their emphatic Europa League win with a trip to Merseyside.

The Blues' top four hopes took a hit with the draw to Wolverhampton.

They now face off against an Everton side that is as up and down as ever.

A win can put Chelsea level with Arsenal in fourth; any other result will crank up the pressure for the entire international break.

Maurizio Sarri must find a good result and performance in this one.

Given that Chelsea went into the away leg with a 3-0 aggregate, it was surprising that Willy Caballero was not in the starting XI. What that likely means is that Sarri is taking Europa League with the utmost seriousness now and Arrizabalaga will likely play every remaining match for Chelsea this season.

Formation: 4-3-3
