Live coverage of Chelsea’s trip to face Everton at Goodison Park, with Kalidou Koulibaly and Raheem Sterling set for their Blues debuts
Welcome to trendynewsreporters live coverage of Everton vs Chelsea from Goodison Park.
The Blues head to the North West has made two new signings in Carney Chukwuemeka and Marc Cucurella this week, in addition to Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly in the transfer window.
Of course, a familiar face will be in the Everton dugout on Saturday evening, and the fact Frank Lampard coached the Toffees to victory back in May will not have been forgotten by Blues supporters. Richarlison was the difference between the sides on that occasion but has since left for Tottenham, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin out of the clash due to injury.
Thomas Tuchel will be hoping to overcome the Blues’ awful record at Goodison Park in recent years. Chelsea has lost their last four matches away to Everton and only won one of their last eight – the squad will be desperate to put that right and get some momentum for the start of the season.
