TEAM NEWS

Managerless Everton’s injury woes in central midfield look set to continue, with Fabian Delph expected to miss a fifth game with a thigh injury.

Forward Theo Walcott is available after returning to the bench on Wednesday, while Bernard could make a first start since October.

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is expected to feature despite being substituted against Aston Villa.

Midfielder Ross Barkley is back in contention following illness.

MOTD COMMENTATOR’S NOTES

Martin Fisher: Marco Silva was a dead man walking. Surprisingly, he survived a home defeat against bottom club Norwich but Wednesday’s submission across Stanley Park was the final straw, a pitiful performance that brutally exposed the chasm that now exists between the blue and red halves of Merseyside.

While Liverpool fight for the title, Everton are in a fight for survival and it might get worse before it gets better.

Opponents Chelsea are aiming for their sixth away win of the season, and only champions Manchester City have scored more on the road.

How Everton must wish they could find someone like Frank Lampard.

LAWRO’S PREDICTION

Chelsea are going well and picked up another three points against Aston Villa but, now they have made a managerial change, I just fancy Everton to get something from this one.

Prediction: 1-1
