Chelsea are set to go head-to-head with Frank Lampard’s Everton this afternoon as the Blues look to cement a place in this season’s top four. Meanwhile, Everton will be desperate to keep their faint hopes of Premier League safety alive with three points.

Thomas Tuchel’s men go into the game off the back of a trip to Manchester United, where they deserved all three points but came away with just the one. Everton go into the match off the back of a 2-0 defeat to local rivals Liverpool.

Chelsea now have a comfortable six-point lead over top-four rivals Arsenal but will be hoping for the win to secure Champions League qualification as early as possible. In the reverse fixture at the back end of 2021, Everton picked up a point under the leadership of Rafael Benítez as a Covid struck Chelsea failed to make chances count which feel very much like on Thursday night.

The talk going into the match will be around Frank Lampard and if he can save them from relegation as his side fight desperately for points. Lampard faces his old team for the first time since his dismissal last January as they fight to stay in the Premier League.

Ex player now coach Ashley Cole will be in the dugout for the opponents, as will Joe Edwards, Paul Clement and Chris Jones.
