Antonio Conte will have to make do without Alvaro Morata for the trip to Everton after the forward picked up his fifth yellow card of the season in the 2-1 EFL Cup victory over Bournemouth.

So the Chelsea boss is expected to continue with the front three of Pedro, Willian and Eden Hazard, seeing the Belgian occupy the central striker role.

N’Golo Kante was rested on Wednesday night, while Tiemoue Bakayoko only played 29 minutes, so they could combine in central midfield, with Cesc Fabregas and Danny Drinkwater, who both played the full 90 minutes in midweek, dropping to the bench. Victor Moses and Marcos Alonso should take up the wing-back roles after not featuring in the cup, while Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta will also return after being rested.

Gary Cahill and Antonio Rudiger both started in central defence against Bournemouth, though have been alternated in central defence in recent league matches.

David Luiz remains sidelined, while Charley Musonda (groin) is doubtful.
