Chelsea FC XI vs Everton: line-up expected, team news confirmed, injury due today

The £62million signing from Brighton was at Cobham’s training center training after beating the Premier League midday deadline.

He will train ahead of the trip but will likely be on the bench with fellow new signings Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly expected to start.

It’s unclear if there are any injuries among the squad, but a favored starting line-up has started to emerge during the pre-season.

The offense will be built around Sterling who mainly lined up alongside Kai Havertz and Mason Mount in pre-season.

Even though the Blues used a back four in pre-season, they will likely continue with their preferred 3-5-2 formation.

It will be a host of the usual senior squad names alongside the two new signings with Cucurella likely on the bench.

Returning players Armando Broja and Conor Gallagher will also surely be left on the bench.

Predicted Chelsea XI (3-4-3): Mendi; Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Koulibaly; James, Kante, Jorginho, Chilwell; Mount, Havertz, Sterling
