Is Everton vs Chelsea on TV tonight? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Premier League fixture

0

Frank Lampard’s Everton host Chelsea at Goodison Park tonight as the Premier League season gets underway.

Lampard faces another battle to keep Everton up this season after they narrowly avoided relegation last campaign.

A 1-0 win over Thomas Tuchel’s side in May proved crucial, as Lampard again prepares to meet his former side.

Chelsea have had a busy summer, with Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly and Marc Cucurella joining the club in the first transfer window under new ownership.

Here’s everything you need to know.

When is Everton vs Chelsea?

The match kicks off at 5:30pm on Saturday 6 August at Goodison Park, Liverpool.

Team news

Everton have been rocked by the news that Dominic Calvert-Lewin will miss around “six weeks” due to a knee injury suffered in training. With Solomon Rondon also out due to a suspension from last season, it means Dele Alli could lead the line. Yerry Mina is available after overcoming a knock, but the match should come too soon for Allan and Seamus Coleman while Tom Davies, Andre Gomes and Andros Townsend are out.

Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly should make their debuts but although Marc Cucurella was signed in time to be registered in Chelsea’s squad, the left back is unlikely to feature. Timo Werner is an injury doubt due to a hamstring injury but the forward has also been subject to speculation about his future and may not have featured anyway. Ben Chilwell may not be fully fit but with Marcos Alonso on the verge of joining Barcelona, Emerson Palmieri may start instead.

Predicted line-ups

Everton: Pickford; Godfrey, Keane, Tarkowski; Patterson, Doucoure, Iwobi, Mykolenko; Gordon, Alli, McNeil

Chelsea: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Silva, Koulibaly; James, Kante, Kovacic, Emerson; Mount, Havertz, Sterling

Odds

Everton: 5/1

Draw: 16/5

Chelsea: 4/6

Prediction

Everton will work hard but look to be a very limited team that is not ready for the new season. Chelsea have hardly had the best preparations either but you can usually rely on their defence and Everton should not pose too many problems without a striker. Raheem Sterling could get the winner in a tight opening win for the Blues. Everton 0-1 Chelsea
