Kepa, Jorginho, Ross Barkley and Pedro were the only four players to start both the win over Crystal Palace last Sunday and the victory over BATE in midweek, so the likes of N’Golo Kante, Alvaro Morata and the entire Chelsea back four would seem set to return to the starting XI for the visit of Everton.

Eden Hazard got another 60 minutes under his belt in that Europa League success and could oust Pedro from the team for Sunday’s encounter with the Toffees, with Willian switching over to the right flank.

Barkley looks at risk of being benched given that Mateo Kovavic was rested on Thursday night, while there was no update given on Cesc Fabregas’ (illness) availability, with the Spanish midfielder having been left at home for their trip to Belarus.
