Chelsea face a battle to drag themselves back into the top four race this season and they will be tested by Sean Dyche’s Everton on Saturday.
Manager Graham Potter has slowly began to see an upturn in results in recent weeks, with back-to-back Premier League wins, and a spot in the Champions League quarterfinals.
However, despite finding themselves still mired in a relegation scrap, Dyche’s Toffees have picked up four points from their last two league outings.
Here’s all the key information on the match, including kickoff time, live streaming and TV channels, lineups, and betting odds.

Chelsea vs Everton lineups
Potter is still battling against a lengthy injury list at Chelsea with Thiago Silva, Raheem Sterling, Cesar Azpilicueta and N’Golo Kante all sidelined until after the international break.
However, Mason Mount and Reece James’ joint inclusion in the England squad for this month’s Euro 2024 qualifiers hints at them being fit to start.
Chelsea starting XI (3-4-3): Kepa (GK) — Fofana, Koulibaly, Badiashile — James, Fernandez, Kovacic, Chilwell — Mount, Havertz, Felix
Chelsea subs: Bettinelli (GK), Cucurella, Loftus-Cheek, Chalobah, Zakaria, Mudryk, Ziyech, Gallagher, Madueke
Dyche has kept changes to a minimum in his time in charge of Everton, and the visitors are likely to be unchanged, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin still out.
Everton starting XI (5-4-1): Pickford (GK) — Coeman, Keane, Tarkowski, Godfrey — Iwobi, Onana, Gueye, Doucoure, McNeil — Gray
Everton subs: Begovic (GK), Holgate, Mykolenko, Mina, Davies, Coday, Garner, Maupay, Simms
Chelsea vs Everton prediction, odds
Potter’s future will come back into focus in the coming weeks, if Chelsea stall in the Champions League, and their push for a top four spot. But for now, the signs look positive.
Everton have won three from four at home under Dyche, but they have picked up just one point on the road, and the hosts will be confident of a tightly fought win.
