How Chelsea could line up against Everton

Ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash between Chelsea and Everton, Sports Mole looks at how Maurizio Sarri’s side could line up against the Toffees.

Chelsea head into their Premier League encounter with Everton looking to extend their unbeaten record in all competitions to 18 matches.

The Blue have already secured their progress through to the last 32 of the Europa League, and that leaves Maurizio Sarri being able to focus on challenging for top spot in the league.

Chelsea sit in second position in the top-flight standings, but the West Londoners have only recorded three wins and three draws from their last half-a-dozen outings.

Sarri has a number of selection dilemmas ahead of Sunday’s fixture, and here Sports Mole looks at how his team could line up at Stamford Bridge.

Doubtful: Cesc Fabregas (illness)

Antonio Rudiger, David Luiz, Marcos Alonso and Alvaro Morata will all start for Chelsea having been left out of the squad for the Europa League fixture against BATE Borisov in Belarus.

Cesar Azpilicueta and N’Golo Kante will also be recalled having remained as unused substitutes, while Willian should come into the team in place of Pedro.

Eden Hazard is expected to start after coming through an hour in midweek, but Ross Barkley could only be named as a replacement against his former club with Mateo Kovacic coming back into the team.

Cesc Fabregas may return to the substitutes’ bench after illness kept him out of the squad against BATE, which could lead to Ruben Loftus-Cheek missing out.
