Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel would have been delighted by the result against Liverpool last week and he will want to carry on that momentum when they take on their Merseyside rivals Everton at Stamford Bridge tomorrow night.
The Toffees have won their last three matches so this won’t be an easy game for the Blues. Carlo Ancelotti’s side are just one point behind their opponents in the table so this could prove crucial in the battle for a top-four spot.
In terms of team news, Chelsea have a fully fit squad to choose from after Thiago Silva returned to full training following a thigh muscle injury.
Chelsea’s Predicted XI To Play Everton:
Mendy, Hudson-Odoi, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger, Chilwell, Kovacic, Kante, Mount, Giroud, Werner
Everton have seven players currently on the sidelines. James Rodriguez (calf), Robin Olsen, Tom Davies and captain Seamus Coleman are all injury doubts. Jean-Phillipe Gbamin (calf), Fabian Delph (muscular) and Yerry Mina (calf) are unavailable.
Everton’s Predicted XI:
Pickford, Coleman, Godfrey, Keane, Digne, Iwobi, Doucoure, Gomes, Richarlison, Rodriguez, Calvert-Lewin
The bookies have made Chelsea the favourites with Betfair pricing them at 4/7 for the win. A draw is 16/5 with Bet 365 while a victory for Everton is currently 6/1 at BetVictor.
