Match preview Chelsea V Everton

Quite surprising this game is not televised on Sky Sports or BT Sport, instead
they are opting to show the West Brom vs Stoke fixture at 1.30pm later today...though I am sure they are missing a trick.

Team news



Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas returns from suspension for the visit of Everton, defender Gary Cahill is still banned following his red card against Burnley on the opening day of the season though the defence seemed good enough against Tottenham

Provisional squad: Courtois, Caballero, Rudiger, Alonso, Kante, Fabregas, Pedro, Bakayoko, Moses, Willian, Batshuayi, Morata, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Christiansen, Kenedy, Tomori, Musonda, Boga, Remy, Scott.


Everton have doubts over both Idrissa Gueye and Sandro Ramirez and will be without Davy Klaassen for their trip to Chelsea.

Gueye missed Thursday's win over Hajduk Split as a precaution with a hamstring problem, while neither striker Sandro (heel) nor midfielder Klaassen (foot) played either.

Boss Ronald Koeman's midfield options are limited as Morgan Schneiderlin is suspended, with the Frenchman joining James McCarthy, Ramiro Funes Mori, Yannick Bolasie (all knee), Seamus Coleman (broken leg) and Ross Barkley (hamstring) on the sidelines.

Provisional squad: Pickford, Stekelenburg, Martina, Keane, Williams, Jagielka, Baines, Gueye, Sigurdsson, Davies, Besic, Lennon, Rooney, Calvert-Lewin, Mirallas, Holgate, Lookman.

Betting Tips


We will be on the front foot and Koeman will set his team up to defend and counter, especially with Schneiderlin out. It will be up to us to break them down. We were brilliant against them with a very easy victory last season and hopefully we will risk Hazard despite him coming back from injury, without his quality in the team, I can see it taking longer to break the Toffees down

I have to go for a Chelsea win and eradicate the nightmare start against Burnley. I am expecting it to be a fairly high scoring game as Everton have scored in ten of their last 13 on the road too, so a 3-1 (14/1 with Bet365) or 4-1 (25/1 with BetVictor) for Chelsea to win looks the bet to have, add to that eleven of Chelsea’s last twelve home league games have seen three or more goals,

First goalscorer is has to be  Pedro to find the net on his comeback from injury. The Spanish forward scored six of his nine league goals at Stamford Bridge last season and tormented Everton last season with scintillating performances, scoring twice so 11/2 with a number of bookmakers also looks a good bet.
