The Premier League returns and Everton face Chelsea at the Goodison Park in the first game of the day.
The Champions have been in horrific form lately and will hope to bounce back with a win against the Toffees.
As far as Chelsea’s team news is concerned, the biggest absentee is their star goal keeper Courtoius. The Belgian international is out injured and has been replaced by new summer signing Asmir Begovic.
Captain John Terry has returned to the starting XI after missing the last league game against Palace due to suspension. Surprisingly, his usual central defense partner Gary Cahill is on the bench and Kurt Zouma is starting with the skipper.
Out of form Branislav Ivanovic retains his place in the starting line up. Cesc Fabregas is starting a little further upfront in the midfield and Mikel will partner Matic in the center of the park.
Falcao scored the only goal for the Blues in the last game but he is on the bench and Diego Costa starts again as the lone striker. Here is Chelsea’s confirmed starting XI formation vs Everton.
