Chelsea Vs Everton Preview: Team News, Predicted Lineups, Key Men And Odds

Chelsea will face off against Everton at Stamford Bridge on Sunday as they look to keep their brilliant unbeaten run going in the league. The Toffees have recently put in some impressive attacking displays while their defence could be boosted by the return of Yerry Mina. The Pensioners would also have Eden Hazard back after the Belgian missed some important league matches recently due to an injury.

Both teams will be quietly confident about their chances in this match which means that we could be in for an entertaining game of football at West London.

Team News

Chelsea

Cesc Fabregas is a significant doubt for this weekend’s clash at Stamford Bridge, but except for the Spaniard, there are no other fresh injury concerns for Maurizio Sarri to cope with at this time. The Italian head coach will have a full squad to choose from and might opt to start with Eden Hazard who also featured against BATE Borisov in midweek.

Everton

The Toffees have a whole host of injuries to deal with here. The likes of Phil Jagielka, Jonjo Kenny, Cuco Martina and Kurt Zouma are all spending time on the treatment table which could mean that Yerry Mina might make his first Premier League start for Everton on Sunday.

Predicted Lineups

Chelsea

Kepa Arrizabalaga; Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, David Luiz, Marcos Alonso; NGolo Kante, Jorginho, Ross Barkley; Eden Hazard, Willian, Alvaro Morata

Everton

Jordan Pickford; Seamus Coleman, Michael Keane, Yerry Mina, Lucas Digne; Idrissa Gueye, Andre Gomes; Theo Walcott, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Bernard; Richarlison

Key Men

Chelsea

Morata has scored a bunch of goals off late, and would need to continue his good form versus Everton if he wants to help Chelsea keep their unbeaten streak alive. The partnership between Rudiger and Luiz will also be the focus of attention as they will be up against Richarlison and Sigurdsson who could both potentially score if a chance fell in their path.

Everton

All eyes will be on Yerry Mina if the Colombian defender makes his first league start for the Toffees at Stamford Bridge this weekend. Both Walcott and Bernard will also need to be effective on the flanks if the Merseyside outfit are to come away with a result from West London.

Odds

Chelsea win – 2/5

Draw – 17/4

Everton win – 15/2
