Team News

Everton
Chelsea
  • Salomon Rondon is suspended for Everton, who are also without Andros Townsend and Seamus Coleman here.
  • Tom Davies and Andre Gomes are also absent, and with Allan lacking match fitness, Alex Iwobi could start alongside Abdoulaye Doucoure in midfield.
  • Dwight McNeil, along with Tarkowski, should make his league debut for the Toffees here.
  • Timo Werner is a doubt for the Blues, though he may have already left for RB Leipzig by the time this one kicks off.
  • Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly are expected to start for Chelsea at Goodison Park.
  • Ben Chilwell missed most of last season due to injury, but he is set to start here.

Prediction

  • Everton flirted with relegation last season, and it wasn't until their penultimate game of the campaign that their safety was secured. They actually have a decent record at Goodison Park against Chelsea, winning the last four meetings with the Blues on Merseyside.
  • Chelsea are still looking to bring new faces through the door at Stamford Bridge, and they are in talks to sign Marc Cucurella, Wesley Fofana and Denzel Dumfries. Despite their poor record at Everton, they still had the third best away record in the Premier League last season.
  • Chelsea will hope to make new additions before this weekend, but given their struggles in the window, they may be forced to share the spoils with the Toffees.

  • Every time Chelsea beat Everton at Goodison Park, they go on to win the title.

  • @splint3r I know for fact you are a liar

  • @Socio4Life I know for a fact that you've never met me. So shut it.

  • Chelsea Win.

  • Such a defensive team. Gerard and Lampard, two English managers out of their depth. Need Poch and Knutsen or Postecoglou in Premier League soon

  • Sterlings pace will cause Everton problems.

  • @Rensen It didn't.

  • Lampard will be one of the first managers to get the sack.Their transfer dealings in the summer have been terrible.

  • Surely Chelsea have to be heavy favorites with that lineup. Surprised that Everton didn't really bother strengthening their squad

  • 0-1 Mount MotM

  • Both teams to score - NO @1.75

  • 2-2

  • Chelsea Win.

  • Result mostly depends on Pickford performance. Can see last 5 head to head, Pickford win 2 MOM and rating more than 7. Hopefully Chelsea can take those chance and score many goals.

  • @xxl92 I don't know why people rate soo much Pickford. He is one of the worst keepers in the league..

  • @xxl92 not even Pickford will save them from defeat this time
