Chelsea will be aiming for a third-straight Premier League win when they welcome Everton at Stamford Bridge today.
The Blues can move to ninth in the standings by beating the Toffees, who are currently in a battle to survive in the top-flight.
Kepa Arrizabalaga has played every minute for the Blues in goal since the World Cup. Edouard Mendy is back in training after his injury but the Spaniard should be assured his place between the sticks.
The back three of Wesley Fofana, Kalidou Koulibaly and Marc Cucurella impressed against Leicester City last weekend and they should continue. Benoit Badiashile could feature off the bench again.
However, there should be a change in the wing-back positions. Ben Chilwell is set to start on the left flank but there will be a change in the opposite end with Reece James coming in for Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
Elsewhere no changes are likely. Mateo Kovacic and Enzo Fernandez have excelled as a midfield pairing in the last three games and manager Graham Potter should continue with them against the Toffees.
In attack, Kai Havertz should lead the attack with Mykhaylo Mudryk and Joao Felix playing behind him. With Raheem Sterling and Mason Mount injured, the trio are Chelsea’s best options at the moment.
Predicted Chelsea line-up (3-4-3): Arrizabalaga; Fofana, Koulibaly, Cucurella; James, Kovacic, Fernandez, Chilwell, Felix, Mudryk, Havertz.
