Everton v Chelsea: Predicted lineups

Published August 30th, 2014 - 02:19 GMT

Everton are yet to record their first win of the campaign having secumbed to second half fight backs by both Leicester City and Arsenal in their opening two matches resulting in two draws.

However, if there was ever a match that winning could set your campaign back on the right path just before an international break .

The Toffees have added some more firepower this week having signed former Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o as the front line of Everton has greatly improved this season.

Steven Pienaar joined the injured ranks alongside of Bryan Oviedo, Ross Barkley and Arouna Kone and will likely see Aiden McGeady back in the first team.

Chelsea agreed a two-year loan for Fernando Torres to leave the club and move to AC Milan yesterday so the attacking front for the Blues is down to both Diego Costa and Didier Drogba.

Andre Schurrle could be forced out due to leg injury from the Leicester Match last weekend.

However, the Blues have no other worries and could only see a few changes in the first team.

Projected Lineups

Everton XI: Howard: Coleman, Jagielka, Distin, Baines; McCarthy, Barry; Mirallas, Naismith, McGeady; Lukaku.

Chelsea XI: Courtois: Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Costa.
