Chelsea vs Everton: Premier League latest score, goals and updates from Stamford Bridge
Chelsea XI: Kepa, Alonso, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic, Willian, Hazard, Morata
Everton XI: Pickford, Coleman, Digne, Mina, Keane, Gueye, Andre Gomes, Sigurdsson, Walcott, Bernard, Richarlison
CHELSEA 0-0 EVERTON
- Ross Barkley on bench against former club, Eden Hazard starts
CHELSEA 0-0 EVERTON
8: Close! Azpilicueta clips Bernard’s heels to concede a free-kick on the left touchline. Digne sends an inswinger into the penalty area that an unmarked Yerry Mina fluffs. Do we say ‘fluffs’ these days?
5: Very nearly the breakthrough from Chelsea as Alvaro Morata is a whisker away from collecting Antonio Rudiger’s lofted pass down the middle. Great tempo in the early stages. Good atmosphere too actually.
3: Chelsea playing quite a high line this afternoon and that could suit Everton with the pace of Richarlison and Theo Walcott.
Everton’s Brazilian collects a loose ball over towards the corner of the penalty area and sees a deflected right-footed effort dribble wide. Andre Gomes wins the resulting set-piece but can’t direct it on target.
CHELSEA 0-0 EVERTON
1: OK, after a perfectly observed minute’s silence to honour the 100th anniversary of World War One Armistice Day – we’re underway.
Incidentally, It’s unfair to make Bernard stand next to Everton debutant Yerry Mina in the line-up!
14:10: Ross Barkley is named as a substitute as Chelsea host his former club Everton seeking to extend their unbeaten Premier League start to 12 games.
The Blues make eight changes to the side which began the win at BATE Borisov on Thursday, with Kepa Arrizabalaga, Jorginho and Eden Hazard the players retained.
Richarlison shrugged off an ankle injury to start for Everton, with Colombia defender Yerry Mina making his full debut.
The starting XI…
14:05: And here are the starting XI’s down at Stamford Bridge. Ross Barkley on the bench against his former club. How often does stuff like that happen?
Chelsea XI: Kepa, Alonso, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic, Willian, Hazard, Morata.
Subs: Caballero, Fabregas, Barkley, Pedro, Giroud, Zappacosta, Christensen.
Everton XI: Pickford, Coleman, Digne, Mina, Keane, Gueye, Andre Gomes, Sigurdsson, Walcott, Bernard, Richarlison.
Subs: Stekelenburg, Baines, Jagielka, Tosun, Davies, Calvert-Lewin, Lookman.
14:00: Hello everyone, sorry we don’t have much time to build up to the action today. I’ve been covering Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over Fulham. That saw Jurgen Klopp’s side leapfrog Chelsea and Manchester City. How long will they stay there?
The Blues will be seeking to extend their unbeaten start under Sarri to 18 competitive games against the Toffees, with the London derby with Spurs following at Wembley on November 24.
The win over Palace saw Sarri equal Frank Clark’s 1994 record of remaining unbeaten in his first 11 Premier League games; avoid defeat against Everton and Sarri will have the record to himself.
Chelsea’s only loss this season came in the Community Shield to Manchester City
CHELSEA vs EVERTON
Alvaro Morata, Marcos Alonso, David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger and N’Golo Kante are expected to start for Chelsea. Morata, Alonso, Luiz and Rudiger were rested from the Europa League trip to face BATE Borisov and stayed in London, while Kante was an unused substitute after receiving a late call-up due to Cesc Fabregas’ illness. Fabregas is a doubt for the Toffees game, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek may not feature after a back complaint which boss Maurizio Sarri described as minor.
Everton forward Richarlison , who rolled his ankle early in last weekend’s 3-1 win over Brighton but played the full duration and scored twice, will be assessed ahead of the match. With on-loan defender Kurt Zouma ineligible against his parent club, there could be a first Toffees start for fellow summer signing Yerry Mina. Phil Jagielka and James McCarthy are available.
