Everton vs Chelsea LIVE: Premier League Latest Standings and Goal Updates


Premier League: five essential picks for your fantasy squad

Follow live coverage as Everton hosts Chelsea during the opening weekend of the 2022/23 Premier League season.

The Toffees narrowly avoided the drop from a year ago and will certainly be desperate to kick-start the new campaign to the fore to quell any talk of similar concerns this time around. Thomas Tuchel’s Blues had a more positive season overall, although two defeats to Liverpool in the Carabao and FA Cup finals left them without silverware.

The new squad of former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is shocked by the news that Dominic Calvert-Lewin will miss about “six weeks” due to a knee injury sustained in training. With Solomon Rondon also out due to a suspension from last season, it means Demarai Gray will take the lead. Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly make their debuts for the visitors, while Marc Cucurella also signed in time for the squad, although Tuchel has only named him on the bench when Ben Chilwell fills in on the left wing.

Follow the latest updates from Goodison Park:
