Everton v Chelsea team news: Chilwell starts, Cucurella a sub

Everton v Chelsea rounds off a busy day of Premier League football.

Kick-off at Goodison Park is at 17:30 BST.

Chelsea’s line-up is identical to the one that took on Udinese last Friday, with one exception: the Barcelona-bound Marcos Alonso is replaced by Ben Chilwell at left wing-back.

New signing Marc Cucurella is among the substitutes, while Raheem Sterling makes his competitive Blues bow in a front three with Mason Mount and Kai Havertz.

Everton are also parading two summer recruits in the shape of James Tarkowski and Dwight McNeil, who make Frank Lampard’s starting XI.

Dele Alli doesn’t get the nod up top despite Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Salomon Rondon missing out through injury and suspension, with Anthony Gordon initially starting as the nominal spearhead.

GAMEWEEK 1 LINE-UPS

Everton XI: Pickford, Patterson, Mina, Godfrey, Tarkowski, Mykoleko, Doucoure, Iwobi, Gordon, McNeil, Gray.

Chelsea XI: Mendy, James, Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Koulibaly, Chilwell, Kante, Jorginho, Mount, Havertz, Sterling.

    Perisic to James or hold since I've decided to go with him anyway?

    1. jacob1989
        11 days, 39 mins ago

        Too much uncertainty. Think perisic will rotate with sessegnon esp. Once cl kicks off

        Hold and reassess in a week or so I feel.

      If it wasn’t Everton chelsea would concede at east 3. Poor defence. Vulnerable at counter.

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 9 Years
        11 days, 42 mins ago

        Spurs to smash them?

      So Kulu the standout 8m mid?

        Only got ward and bowen tmrw. Benching walker for Johnny perhaps wasn't a good move. 55 after bps around average i guess?

        1. Dynamic Duos
          • 9 Years
          11 days, 38 mins ago

          Because he is no longer elite?

              You either need to be part of their big circle jerk or have a YouTube channel and be good at Video editing like Andy Spudgun . You don't need to be good at FPL to be labbeled elite these days. Do you tick any boxes? If so then get applying if not then just.. bounce ..

          Have you seen his team for this gw? Differential to a different level. Shame he focused on Kane and Son though.

          My worst picks were Perisic and Mount, and there were warnings so it is my own fault.

          James is going to end up playing RCB a lot this season isn't he, Koulibaly/Azpi/Silva are hardly spring chickens

          really need Chelsea to sign another CB

          1. DeathoftheParty
            • 6 Years
            11 days, 31 mins ago

            Sarr and Chabloah can both play there... I wouldn't be worried

            Isn't CooCooRella supposed to play the left side in a back three, with Koulibaly going to the right (Thiago in the center)?

        9. jonny77
          • 9 Years

          59 post BPS with Haaland, Cancelo and Ward to play, probably relatively good in the grand scheme of things, but a lot of pics still didn't perform (Trent, Diaz, Mount, Jesus etc.)

          1. Khark
            • 7 Years

            Bit harsh on Diaz and Jesus, still cant believe they blanked

          50 with Iversen/Ward, Cancelo and Haaland to go. Pretty happy with that start!

          Team looks good to save the FT for next GW right?

          Ward
          TAA - Robbo - Cancelo - James
          Salah - Saka - Martinelli - Bailey
          Haaland (C) - Jese

          What to do with Kane?

          A. Roll FT to see if he shows any signs of improvement against Chelsea

          B FT to Darwin

          C. FT to Mitrovic in prep for upgrading elsewhere

          Already have Haaland

          that Havertz-Sterling-Mount frontline was absolutely horrendous tonight - can't believe I thought they were gonna score 3 or 4 today, what a moron I am 😆

            Great parts, but they don't add up to anything - zero interplay, the polar opposite of Arsenal (to pick an example).

            Also - why play 3-4-3 with wingbacks if the wingbacks never get forward? I have James and he rarely crossed and rarely overlapped - a total non-factor in attack. Speaking of Arsenal, this was the crap Chelsea team from the 1st half of that friendly.

          The fact that the likes of Son only managed 2 more points than Raheem suggests I should breathe and let nature take it's course. Mount major pain, perhaps I could send him on his way but lets see.

          52 points with Raya and Justin to go. Praying for a 0-0 tomorrow.
