Everton and Chelsea headline a huge day of Premier League football this Saturday.
Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti welcomes his former club Chelsea to Goodison Park this weekend, hoping to emulate last season’s 3-1 win over the West London side.
The task in hand is arguably slightly tougher this season, though. Chelsea have taken 22 of the 33 Premier League points available to them this season to underline their credentials as title contenders.
Meanwhile, Everton have surrendered their bright start to the season with a run of just one win in their last six Premier League games.
Frank Lampard’s Chelsea have been robust on the road this season. Currently undefeated away in the Premier League, the Blues have won their last two top flight games away from Stamford Bridge, and have outscored their opponents 11-4 when on their travels.
Everton have lost their last two home games, and have to go back to the start of October to find their most recent win at Goodison Park.
One crumb of comfort for the Toffees is that there has been just one away win in the last 13 meetings between these clubs, in all competitions.
Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi will miss Chelsea’s trip to Goodison Park. Ancelotti will be without James Rodriguez, Lucas Digne, Fabian Delph, Seamus Coleman and Robin Olsen.
