Chelsea vs Everton lineups
Graham Potter has made three changes to his Chelsea team to face Everton in the Premier League today, as Reece James and Christian Pulisic both return following injury.
Christian Pulisic is ready to feature from the beginning again, having come off the bench in our last two matches against Borussia Dortmund and Leicester City. He makes his first start for the Blues since early January, Mykhailo Mudryk the man making way as Pulisic joins Joao Felix and Kai Havertz in the front three.
Reece James is also back after missing the trip to Leicester due to illness, returning to his usual role on the right in place of Ruben Loftus-Cheek. The rest of our midfield is unchanged, with Ben Chilwell on the left and Mateo Kovacic captaining the Blues alongside Enzo Fernandez in the centre.
The third change by Graham Potter is in our back three, where Benoit Badiashile comes in for Marc Cucurella, alongside Kalidou Koulibaly and Wesley Fofana in defence. Kepa Arrizabalaga continues in goal.
There is more good news on the injury front, too, as N’Golo Kante is named among our substitutes for his first involvement since going off with an injury against Tottenham in August.
Everton are unchanged from the side which won 1-0 at home against Brentford last week.
