Everton vs Chelsea live stream: How to watch Premier League fixture online and on TV tonight

Chelsea begin their Premier League season at Everton tonight after a busy summer of transfer business for Thomas Tuchel’s side.

The Blues have signed Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, Carney Chuckwuemeka and on Friday announced the transfer of Brighton’s Marc Cucurella in a £62m deal.

Everton have been preparing for their first full season under Chelsea legend Frank Lampard, who will again face off against his former side.

A 1-0 win for Everton over Chelsea in May proved crucial as the Toffees avoided relegation, but they face another battle to stay up this year with Richarlison gone and Dominic Calvert-Lewin set to miss the first weeks of the season.

Here’s everything you need to know.

Team news

Everton have been rocked by the news that Dominic Calvert-Lewin will miss around “six weeks” due to a knee injury suffered in training. With Solomon Rondon also out due to a suspension from last season, it means Dele Alli could lead the line. Yerry Mina is available after overcoming a knock, but the match should come too soon for Allan and Seamus Coleman while Tom Davies, Andre Gomes and Andros Townsend are out.

Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly should make their debuts but although Marc Cucurella was signed in time to be registered in Chelsea’s squad, the left back is unlikely to feature. Timo Werner is an injury doubt due to a hamstring injury but the forward has also been subject to speculation about his future and may not have featured anyway. Ben Chilwell may not be fully fit but with Marcos Alonso on the verge of joining Barcelona, Emerson Palmieri may start instead.

Predicted line-ups

Everton: Pickford; Godfrey, Keane, Tarkowski; Patterson, Doucoure, Iwobi, Mykolenko; Gordon, Alli, McNeil

Chelsea: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Silva, Koulibaly; James, Kante, Kovacic, Emerson; Mount, Havertz, Sterling


Everton: 5/1

Draw: 16/5

Chelsea: 4/6


Everton will work hard but look to be a very limited team that is not ready for the new season. Chelsea have hardly had the best preparations either but you can usually rely on their defence and Everton should not pose too many problems without a striker. Raheem Sterling could get the winner in a tight opening win for the Blues. Everton 0-1 Chelsea
