DM- Cesc Fabregas
The playmaker provided an incredible amount of assists last season, but has failed to register one so far this campaign. His inability to rediscover his form could well be one of the reasons why Chelsea are struggling.
DM- Nemanja Matic
Although inconsistency is Ross Barkley’s major weakness, his ability to change a game means that Matic will probably be given the task of keeping him quiet. If he can keep the England star out of the game, that should cut much of the supply to the Toffees’ main goalscoring threat Romelu Lukaku.
The former Barcelona man made the perfect start to his Chelsea career by scoring 20 minutes into his debut against West Brom. He will really fancy his chances against Brian Oviedo, who seems the most likely option to feature at left-back.
