Chelsea Premier League campaign resume on Saturday as Blue travel to Goodison Park on Saturday night to face Everton. Chelsea have confirmed their full squad against Everton but we are going to predict the starting lineup for Chelsea here on this post.
Chelsea has been impressive this season as a win for the blue will take them to the top of the table. This match is very very crucial for Chelsea as if they can claim the three points and that will take them to the top of the table. Frank Lampard Chelsea goals has promised to approach the match with all levels of seriousness to take the whole three points from the game.
Frank Lampard, during his press conference on Everton versus Chelsea match, he said,
“They started very well. They have quality players, they have a fantastic manager – one of the best in the world – and the Premier League is unforgiving,”
They have had a few injuries but we all have our own moments and patches where results are challenging. But it doesn’t change my thoughts about how to approach playing Everton.
“They are a very, very good side. They have great individuals within collective that can win games. I’m very focused on their strengths and the dangers we face going there.
“We found that out last year. I know it was a different time, different manager although he is still on the staff. But it was a very tough match for us and that should still be on our minds.”
As big as the challenge will be that lies ahead for the Blues tonight, Lampard has no shortage of options to call upon.
Aside from being without Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi, who are both facing spells on the sidelines with hamstring troubles, Lampard has a fully fit squad to choose from, meaning he is likely to make changes to the side that drew with Krasnodar.
Meanwhile, Christian Pulisic will be pushing for a first Premier League start since the goalless draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford back in October.
Issuing an update on Pulisic’s fitness, following no shortage of hamstring troubles in recent weeks, Lampard said: “Christian Pulisic had a tiny bit of awareness off the back of the Leeds game game on one of his hamstrings but he’s training normally, so we should be as we were.”
Elsewhere, the likes of Edouard Mendy, Kurt Zouma, Ben Chilwell, N’Golo Kante and Timo Werner are likely to return after being dropped to the bench against Krasnodar.

Goalkeepers: Edouard Mendy, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Willy Caballero & Karlo Ziger.
