Chelsea vs Everton – Team News

Chelsea face Everton at Stamford Bridge in just under an hour, and the teams are in!

Malo Gusto is back in the team after a week off, and he slots in at right back. His presence is vital, with his speed and attacking intend adding to much to the team on the ball. The chemistry he’s developed with players in the front 3 is really starting to impress, and we hope the week of time out has done him some good.

Axel Disasi misses out through injury, so Gusto replaces him down the right, with Thiago Silva and Trevoh Chalobah forming the central defensive partnership once again.

Enzo Fernandez isn’t able to join the squad as he’s kept in cotton wool ahead of the FA Cup semi final this weekend. Conor Gallagher drops deeper into midfield to replace him, with Cole Palmer playing in Gallagher’s usual position behind the front man.

The front 3 has Noni Madueke and Mykhailo Mudryk flanking Nicolas Jackson. This is an attacking team, one built to put pressure on an Everton team who will be content to come and sit deep and play on the break.

All games are huge right now, but given the points dropped all around us this weekend, grabbing 3 tonight will mean a lot. The FA Cup semi final against Man City this weekend sees us take on a team potentially distracted by their title race, so our chances are better than we might have thought before.

But if we want to get anywhere, we need to start tonight with a confidence boosting win to clear our minds of some recent shocking results. Let’s go out there and get Stamford Bridge onside with some early pressure on the Toffees.

Here are the full team line-ups for Chelsea vs Everton (kick off at 20:00 GMT)

  1. This was as complete a first half as Chelsea have managed under Mauricio Pochettino, displaying a clinical edge in front of goal that made the insipid attacking displays of earlier in the season feel like a distant memory.
