Premier League action intensifies with the 17th round culminating at the 2021/22 season. Chelsea, Everton will play their latest round at Stamford Bridge on the same day.
The Blues are Europe’s most fearful team, and Thomas Tuchel continues to lead Chelsea. The Blues conceded many goals, but they were not of high quality and lost a lot of points. Chelsea beat Leeds United last weekend.
Everton’s problems under Rafael Benitez didn’t seem to be ending. The pressure is mounting on the former Chelsea manager.
In the last season’s match, Chelsea beat Everton 2-0. This was due to a Ben Godfrey own goal and a Jorginho penalty.
News and strategies for the team
Trevor Chalobah’s (hamstring), and N’Golo Kane’s (knee) returns will see them back on Everton’s bench. They will not be with Ben Chilwell (COVID-19), Mateo Kovacic, and Mateo Kovacic who have started a light training session.
Marcos Alonso will be deployed by the Chelsea manager as a left-wing back in Chilwell’s absence. Reece James will be on the left-wing, while Marcos Alonso will play as a left-wing-back in Chilwell’s absence. Ruben LoftusCheek (Middlefield) and Jorginho will also play in the middle.
Cesar Azpilicueta may make a rare back-up while Thiago Silva is resting. Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen, and Azpilicueta will form a central defensive pairing with Eduard Mendy.
Chelsea should be facing Romelu Lukaku at the other end of the pitch. Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount could also play a role, with Callum Hudson Odoi, Kai Havertz, and Hakim Ziyech on their benches.
Line-ups possible (3-4-2-1). Mendy; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Alonso; Mount, Pulisic; Lukaku
Rafael Benitez has suffered a serious setback ahead of his Chelsea counterpart’s visit to Stamford Bridge. Everton may be without eight players from their first team on Thursday.
Richarlison is the latest Toffees absentee. He is currently recovering from a calf injury that will keep him out for several weeks.
Abdoulaye Docoure and Allan will be in the middle, trying to keep Mason Mount’s crosses under control. The first has to produce in the final third.
Possible line-ups (4-4-1-1-1). Pickford; Coleman, Holgate, Keane, Godfrey; Iwobi, Doucoure, Allan, Gordon; Gray; Rondon
Pay close attention to the players
Romelu Lukaku will not be able to return to Everton, and his ankle injury could make him miss many games. Thomas Tuchel is reluctant to give Everton’s former striker many chances to get back to full fitness.
