Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has made only two changes to his team that defeated Leeds United last time out, with Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic making the starting team.
Chelsea starting XI (3-4-3): Mendy; Azpilicueta (c), Thiago Silva, Rudiger; James, Loftus-Cheek, Jorginho, Alonso; Ziyech, Pulisic, Mount
Subs: Arrizabalaga, Bettinelli, Chalobah, Christensen, Sarr, Kante, Saul, Barkley
Everton starting XI (4-4-2) Pickford; Kenny, Keane (c), Godfrey, Branthwaite, Holgate; Doucoure, Gomes; Iwobi, Simms, Gordon
Subs: Begovic, Lonergan, Coleman, Allan, Gbamin, Onyango, Dobbin
Kai Havertz, Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner are missing from this squad, and it could be connected to the Covid-19 cases that were reported in the Chelsea team.
The Chelsea bench looks short of options, but the positive thing is that injured duo N’Golo Kante and Trevoh Chalobah are back in the team.
