Everton vs Chelsea LIVE: Sterling goal ruled out for offside on spirited debut as Godfrey suffers horror injury


The first Saturday of the new season ends at Goodison Park tonight as Chelsea play host to Frank Lampard’s Everton.

The Toffees endured a torrid campaign last season which saw Rafa Benitez sacked in January before Lampard did just enough to keep them in the Premier League.

Optimism on Merseyside has not increased much over the summer after a tough window and poor pre-season results.

  • The clash at Goodison Park will start at 5:30 p.m.
  • Everton XI: Pickford, Tarkowski, Mina, Godfrey, Patterson, Doucoure, Iwobi, Mykolenko, McNeil, Gordon, Gray.
  • Replacements: Begovic, Holgate, Keane, Allan, Alli, Gbamin, Vinagre, Warrington, Mills.
  • Chelsea XI: Mendy, Silva, Azpilicueta, Koulibaly, James, Kante, Jorginho, Mount, Chilwell, Sterling, Havertz.
  • Replacements: Kepa, Kovacic, Pulisic, Loftus-Cheek, Chalobah, Broja, Ziyceh, Gallagher, Cucurella.
