Chelsea vs Everton, Premier League: live blog, highlights

That game was in doubt this morning, but Chelsea returned negative tests to the rest of the squad today after three (unnamed) players tested positive last night, so we’re set to move forward.

Everton are also understaffed due to injuries. Let’s start the battle of attrition!

It seems that the attackers (Lukaku, Havertz, Werner) were the three defeated? Twitter users claim Havertz was seen at the hotel’s pre-game, so maybe he’s just getting a hit. Callum Hudson-Odoi is also absent from the squad.


Here we are.

Mendy | Rüdiger, Silva, Azpilicueta (c) | Alonso, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, James | Mount, Pulisic, Ziyech
