Chelsea face Everton in the Premier League tomorrow evening at 8pm, and Frank Lampard’s side will be looking to get another three points as the action heats up.
Lampard rested a host of players in the midweek draw with Krasnodar in the Champions League, meaning they will be fully ready to come back in tomorrow.

It also means that Lampard’s line up is a little bit easier to predict for tomorrow, the only doubt being Christian Pulisic, who should be fine but we aren’t sure yet.
Lampard says no new injuries for Chelsea.
Ziyech and Hudson-Odoi still out. Pulisic had ‘awareness of his hamstring after Leeds’ but he should be fine. #CFC #EFC

With that in mind, and the fact you’d expect Lampard to pick his best line up available again, the only question mark really is whether Kai Havertz starts or Mateo Kovacic?
Here is what I believe will be Lampard’s line up.
Predicted Xl –
(4-3-3) – Mendy, James, Zouma, Silva, Chilwell. Kante, Mount, Havertz. Werner, Pulisic, Giroud.
If Pulisic is not fit then I believe we will see Kovacic start and Havertz go wide.
