Chelsea will be looking to cement their place in the top four when they take on Everton at Goodison Park this lunchtime.
Frank Lampard has named an unchanged line-up from the side that beat Aston Villa in midweek. That means Reece James keeps his place at right-back with Cesar Azpilicueta at left-back and Emerson Palmeiri having to settle for a place on the bench.
Kurt Zouma and Andreas Christensen continue their partnership in the middle of the Chelsea defence so Fikayo Tomori has to settle for a place among the substitutes this afternoon. N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic start in midfield so Jorginho is once again named on the bench along with Ross Barkley after he recovered from illness.
Tammy Abraham leads the line up front for Chelsea with Michy Batshuayi on the bench but Olivier Giroud doesn’t make the squad. Mason Mount and Willian support Abraham in attack with Callum Hudson-Odoi among the subs.
As for Everton, caretaker boss Duncan Ferguson has named an attacking side with Gylfi Sigurdsson, Theo Walcott, Alex Iwobi, Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin all starting.
Here are the confirmed line-ups:
Pickford, Sidibe, Holgate, Keane, Digne, Walcott, Schneiderlin, Sigurdsson, Iwobi, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin
Subs: Baines, Tosun, Bernard, Stekelenburg, Davies, Kean, Niasse
Arrizabalaga, James, Christensen, Zouma, Azpilicueta, Kante, Kovacic, Willian, Mount, Pulisic, Abraham
