Chelsea’s impressive run in the Premier League will be placed under the microscope this weekend as Frank Lampard’s side face a trip to Everton.
Lampard’s team arrive at Goodison on the back of a nine-game unbeaten Premier League run and a strong result on Merseyside will keep the pressure up on Spurs and Liverpool.
Hakim Ziyech is the only new injury doubt for Lampard ahead of the weekend after the Moroccan was forced off against Leeds last time out.
Christian Pulisic looks the most likely to fill in for him on the wing with Olivier Giroud and Kai Havertz set to hold on to their starting spots.
The injury situation is more complex for Toffees boss Carlo Ancelotti as he looks to pick up their first home points since October.
Injuries to full back pair Lucas Digne and Seamus Coleman gives the Italian a headache in defence but the absence of playmaker James Rodriguez will be an even bigger concern for Ancelotti.
Ben Godfrey is expected to cover for Coleman again with promising youngster Niels Nkounkou stepping in for Digne.
Rodriguez’s is irreplaceable in this Everton team but Ancelotti is set to call on Gylfi Sigurdsson to bridge the creativity gap.
Kick off will be a late on tomorrow night on the Blue half of Merseyside with an 8pm start at Goodison Park.
