Billy Gilmour starts, Kepa in goal: Predicted Chelsea team Frank Lampard should start vs Everton

Chelsea are back in Premier League action this weekend as they host Everton at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The Blues face Merseyside opposition for the second game in a row as they welcome the Toffees to west London, following on from a 2-0 win against Premier League leaders Liverpool in the FA Cup fifth round on Tuesday night.

Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard has some injury concerns for the weekend though, with Callum Hudson-Odoi, Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic and N’Golo Kante all set to miss the game.

It’s a big game for the Blues as they need to keep their foot on the pedal in the race for the top four.
