Chelsea host Everton in the Premier League on Sunday with the main talking point being the return of former boss Carlo Ancelotti to Stamford Bridge.
 
After defeating Liverpool in the cup midweek, Chelsea will be desperate to defeat a second Merseyside club in less than a week, but will be very aware of dangerous and rejuvenated the Toffees have been under Ancelotti’s charge.
 
The big Chelsea team news ahead of the visit of Everton is that N’Golo Kante is out with injury and Jorginho is serving the first of a two match ban.
 
Fellow midfielders Willian and Mateo Kovacic both suffered injuries midweek, so the opportunity could come for Billy Gilmour to start once again and build on his man-of-the-match performance in the cup.
 
Kepa Arrizabalaga is also expected to get the nod in goal after impressing against Liverpool – it would be quite a surprise to see the world’s most expensive goalkeeper dropped for the Chelsea line up vs Everton.

Goalkeeper: Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Defence: Reece James, Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, Kurt Zouma, Marcos Alonso
