Chelsea face one of their biggest tests in a couple weeks when they travel to Merseyside to face in-form Everton on Saturday lunchtime.

The Blues have been in good form of late themselves but a match against an Everton side which are thriving under new boss Sam Allardyce looks to be a tough prospect.

The home side go into the match unbeaten under their new boss and The Toffees have no new injury concerns. Chelsea target Ross Barkley is again likely to be absent as he looks to recover from a hamstring injury. Fellow midfielder Yannick Bolasie also continues to miss out with injury.

Chelsea make the trip to Goodison Park without the services of summer signing Alvaro Morata who is set to serve a one-match suspension. Brazilian centre-back David Luiz remains sidelined with a knee injury although that player would be unlikely to start for The Blues if he was fit.

Back-up striker Michy Batshuayi is likely to be named on the bench while youngster Ethan Ampadu could also find himself handed the reward of being listed as a substitute.

The match is scheduled to kick-off at 12.30pm and will be screened live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League channels.
