Well their was not much goalmouth action in the first half but it has been a very fiesty game indeed with five yellow cards being shown in the first 45 minutes. Marcos Silva will be happier of the two managers with how his side have played. Chelsea will need to up their game in the second half. What will happen?

Join us from around an hour before kick off for confirmed starting XIs. 
As for team news for the visitors, they will definitely be without Chelsea loanee Kurt Zouma so will have to reshuffle at the back. The obvious replacement is summer signing Yerry Mina who is yet to make his full competitive debut for his new club. He played 90 minutes in the midweek friendly win over Kenyan champions Gor Mahia but Silva remained tight lipped about his status for the weekend.


Recently recovered from injury Eden Hazard is fit again and played over an hour in Belarus and could start this game from the bench. Midfielders Cesc Fabregas and Rebuen Loftus-Cheek have their own ailments and are doubtful. 


Barkley was part of the strong Chelsea side that picked up a 1-0 win away to Bate Borisov in the Europa League on Thursday night meaning that Sarri is likely to rotate somewhat for this game.
The midfielder is yet to return to Goodison Park but isn’t expecting the warmest of receptions from the boisterous away following of the Toffees. Barkley told Sky Sports that he doesn’t think the reception will “will be the best,” but that he is “excited” to play against some former team mates.
One key storyline surrounding the game is the fact that Ross Barkley will finally line up against his former club. The former Everton midfielder joined Chelsea last January for £15 million after a £35 million move in the summer prior fell through.
Everton have already travelled to two of the ‘top six’ and fell to two defeats. Compared to recent visits, however, they have played better and given themselves a chance at three points but will have to be at their very best to take something away from a ground where they have lost their last six of their last seven games.
The trip to Stamford Bridge for Silva’s side is another step in an increasingly difficult set of fixtures but the Portuguese boss has belief in his team being able to take something from the game.
The Toffees recently had their three-game winning streak snapped away to Manchester United but got back to winning ways last weekend at home against Brighton and Hove Albion. A brace from Brazilian forward Richarlison, who is a doubt for this game, put the Blues back in the win column.


Opposite the former banker this weekend and looking to break that dreadful record is Marco Silva. Silva’s men have gotten off to a decent start this season, winning five of their opening 11 games under their new boss.
Maurizio Sarri’s men have history on their side in this fixture as the Blues have not lost to Everton at home in the Premier League since the 1994-95 season.
Chelsea are off to an unbeaten start this campaign, winning eight of a possible 11 games. They’ve drawn the other three but are looking to stretch their current winning run to three games. Last time out they picked up a 3-1 win over Crystal Palace thanks to a brace from Alvaro Morata and another goal from Pedro.
