CONFIRMED: Everton and Chelsea line-ups

Everton Goodison

Here is how Everton and Chelsea will line up for this evening’s Premier League match:

Everton starting XI: Howard, Baines, Distin, Jagielka, Coleman, Barry, McCarthy, McGeady, Naismith, Mirallas, Lukaku

Subs: Joel, Gibson, Besic, Osman, Stones, Alcaraz, Eto'o

Chelsea starting XI: Courtois, Azpilicueta, Terry, Cahill, Ivanovic, Matic, Fabregas, Ramires, Willian, Hazard, Costa

Subs: Cech, Luis, Zouma, Drogba, Mikel, Salah, Schurrle

Everton and Chelsea meet in Saturday’s late kick-off with the Blues’ 100% record under considerable threat from an impressive Toffees side.

Roberto Martinez’s men are likely to want to go one better than the draw they had with Arsenal last weekend, when they looked for much of the match like they were heading for a fine victory.

Today’s hosts have won four of their last five home league games against Chelsea, and there is no reason they cannot make that five from six. But Chelsea have won their last four away games and they are beginning to look like a very well-oiled machine following their excellent summer business.

It could be something akin to the Revenge of the Former Chelsea Striker this evening, with both Romelu Lukaku and Samuel Eto’o now playing for Everton.

What is your score prediction for the match between Everton and Chelsea?
