Chelsea will be looking to build on Thursday evening’s victory over Liverpool when they welcome Everton to Stamford Bride on Monday evening.
After back-to-back draws against both Southampton and Manchester United, the Blues, who lost 1-0 to the Toffees in their last meeting, got back to winning ways with an impressive 1-0 win at Anfield.
Mason Mount netted the only goal of the game shortly before half time to lift the Blues back into the top-four and extend their unbeaten start to life under head coach Thomas Tuchel to ten matches.
Whilst it is no secret that the Blues are in impressive form, Monday evening’s showdown will be a tough test against an Everton side who also have ambitions of finishing inside the Champions League places this season.

With the games continuing to come thick and fast, Tuchel could do with being able to call upon every player within his squad, but injury issues are still a minor problem, with two players facing the prospect of missing the clash with Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
With that in mind, here is a round-up of all the very latest Chelsea injury news.
Chelsea were once again without centre-back Silva for the clash with Liverpool in midweek as he continued to recover from a thigh injury.
The Brazilian has made a return to training but Tuchel confirmed the defender would not be risked against Liverpool.
Speaking during his pre-match press conference, the Blues head coach said: “Thiago made his first training with the team but did not finish the last exercise, just to be taking no risk.
“I assume he trains today [Tuesday] but not 100% so he will not join us for Liverpool.”
Therefore, he could play some part against the Toffees on Monday, but it is more likely that he may return against Leeds United at Elland Road next weekend….
