Everton hope Chelsea’s recent struggles will offer them a chance to move closer to safety. Chelsea have won just two of their last five matches and are running out of motivation to play in the Premier League as the FA Cup final approaches Liverpool on 14 May. The Blues are already eight points clear to secure a Champions League spot for next year, while third is the highest they can finish in the table.

Everton, on the other hand, need to keep pace with Burnley, who beat Watford 2-1 on Saturday. Although the Toffees have played two games less than Burnley and Leeds United, five points separate them from safety. Their -21 goal difference is also six goals worse than Burnley, but 13 goals better than Leeds United, which could make things interesting between the three sides down the stretch. Frank Lampard turned things around a bit to thwart Liverpool in Everton’s Merseyside derby defeat, but they will need to be stronger in attack to secure a result against Chelsea.

Injury updates

Everton: Lampard will have a hard time filling his lineup again as Everton’s injuries increase. Dominic Calvert-Lewin has returned to training and will be available for selection along with Yerry Mina, but the list of those out is getting bigger and bigger. Ben Godfrey will be out for a few weeks after getting injured in the warm-up for Liverpool’s match, Tom Davies, Andre Gomes, Donny van de Beek and Nathan Patterson will also miss the match. This will lead to a makeshift formation similar to the one used against Liverpool, but possibly return to a more 4-4-2 form with Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison leading the way.

Chelsea: Mateo Kovacic is closer to being fit but this match will be too soon for him, offering a chance for Ruben Loftus-Cheek to stay in the starting lineup. Andreas Christensen is dealing with an illness unrelated to Covid which put him as a late physical test for the match, while Ross Barkley will also be a late physical test. Aside from the long-term injuries Chelsea are already dealing with, Thomas Tuchel will have a full list to choose from as he looks to rekindle his form.

Prediction

The return of Calvert-Lewin will be enough for Everton to equalize while Chelsea’s focus is elsewhere. Choice: Everton 1, Chelsea 1
