Chelsea news and transfers LIVE: Squad revealed, Mason Mount worry, Jim Ratcliffe move


Full Chelsea squad for Everton clash revealed as Thomas Tuchel faces Kai Havertz conundrum

Chelsea can take another big step towards securing their place in next season’s Champions League with a win against Everton on Sunday afternoon. But with the Toffees scrapping against relegation this is a game that will be anything but straightforward.

A 2-1 win for Burnley against Watford on Saturday lifted the Clarets back above Everton and even above Leeds in the battle against relegation and Frank Lampard will not want to be the man who takes them out of the Premier League for the first time. It will be the first time Lampard has managed against Thomas Tuchel since being sacked by the club at which he is regarded a legend, so he may well have a point or two to prove.

Thursday night saw Chelsea spurn a number of gilt-edged chances, with Kai Havertz the biggest culprit, despite providing Marcos Alonso with an assist for his goal. It has left him with a potential headache ahead of the clash with Everton although he emphasised his faith in his front-line after the game.

“He needs to fight back into his shape,” Tuchel said of Havertz. “It is like this, I have the same feeling. Hopefully, he shows a reaction. The guys are still young upfront and we will not start pointing fingers because lately, they have been very, very composed and very efficient in front of goal. Against Southampton and in the win at the Bernabeu, we took our chances very well and very precisely.
