On Saturday Chelsea welcome Everton to Stamford Bridge for a Premier League fixture.
After beating the red half of Merseyside, on Tuesday evening, the Chelsea support will be hoping that their side can complete a unique double in the space of less than a week.
The fixture should have provided the Stamford Bridge faithful with the opportunity to show their appreciation to Carlo Ancelotti, the current Everton manager, for what he achieved whilst managing the club before being unceremoniously removed from office, at Everton, after the last game of a season whereby the club had the temerity to only finish second in the Premier League.
However, that is currently looking as if it won’t happen with the likeable Italian picking up a red-card the last time-out after a vociferous protest against a VAR decision that cost his side victory against Manchester United.
Looking ahead to the game, we’re running our usual feature whereby we ask you to predict the starting eleven that Frank Lampard will opt for.
However, this time that could be something of a challenge that is much harder than usual with the squad hit by suspension and injuries.
Jorginho is suspended for two games and will definitely sit this one out while the likes of Tammy Abraham, Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante and Willian are all struggling with injuries.
As is always the case, all we ask you to do is drop your predicted starting eleven into the comment facility beneath this article and we’ll see if anyone gets it 100% correct.
Chelsea v Everton?
Chelsea to Win!
Everton to Win!
