Everton will welcome Chelsea at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon as both teams look to battle it out for the three points in the Premier League. The Toffees suffered a 2-0 loss at the hands of Liverpool last weekend. In contrast, the Blues were held to a 1-1 draw by Manchester United earlier this week, so we can expect the two sets of players to go all out in search of the win.
Everton vs Chelsea: Talking Tactics
Frank Lampard could opt for a 4-1-4-1 formation and might ask his men to sit deep and soak in all the pressure before catching Chelsea off-guard on the break.
Thomas Tuchel will probably set his side up in a 3-4-2-1 formation and could instruct his players to dominate the ball and create enough clear-cut chances to win this clash.
Andros Townsend, Donny van de Beek and Tom Davies are all sidelined because of injuries. Lampard could stick with most of his senior players for this clash.
Everton Predicted XI
Pickford, Coleman, Holgate, Keane, Mykolenko, Delph, Gray, Iwobi, Doucoure, Gordon, Richarlison
Ross Barkley and Andreas Christensen are both major doubts for this game. Otherwise, Tuchel has no fresh injury concerns to cope with this weekend.
Chelsea Predicted XI
Mendy; Azpilicueta, Silva, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Kante, Alonso; Mount, Pulisic, Havertz
Jordan Pickford can expect a busy day and would have to make some important saves if Everton are to stand a chance of securing something from this game.
Both Anthony Gordon and Richarlison will carry most of the goal-scoring burden for the Toffees up top.
Kai Havertz needs to be lethal in the final third if Chelsea want to score enough goals to win this contest by a handsome scoreline. The defensive trio of Cesar Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva and Antonio Rudiger has to find a way to keep things solid at the back so that they can keep the home team at bay during the 90 minutes.
