It’s coming down to the wire, and with Burnley continuing to rack up points late in the season, Everton are going to have to start picking up points right away so that they can catch either the Clarets or even Leeds United. Six games to go and things are getting very very hairy indeed.
Chelsea’s visit today sees Everton manager Frank Lampard come up against many of the same squad that he managed not so long ago at Stamford Bridge, but there is no doubting the London club has definitely seen an uptick in fortunes since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel. They saw an early Premier League challenge fall away thanks to some indifferent performances, but make no mistake this is still a loaded squad that can beat you in a variety of ways.

The last time the two sides met, an injury-depleted Everton side went to Stamford Bridge and came away with a creditable point while Rafa Benitez was still in charge, with Jarrad Branthwaite thrust into service and getting a goal from an Anthony Gordon freekick.
The Toffees have actually had a decent run of results against Chelsea at Goodison Park, winning the last three times the Londoners have visited.
