Everton vs Chelsea LIVE Reaction: Jorginho gets Wembley revenge on Pickford with penalty winner as ‘Brazilian Rolls-Royce’ Thiago Silva stars, Sterling goal ruled out and Godfrey suffers horror injury

    The first Saturday of the new season will conclude at Goodison Park this evening as Frank Lampard’s Everton host Chelsea.

    The Toffees endured a torrid campaign last term which saw Rafa Benitez sacked in January before Lampard did just enough to keep them in the Premier League.

    Optimism on Merseyside has not grown much over the summer following a difficult window and some poor pre-season results.

    • The clash at Goodison Park will kick-off at 5:30pm
    • Everton XI: Pickford, Tarkowski, Mina, Godfrey, Patterson, Doucoure, Iwobi, Mykolenko, McNeil, Gordon, Gray.
    • Subs: Begovic, Holgate, Keane, Allan, Alli, Gbamin, Vinagre, Warrington, Mills.
    • Chelsea XI: Mendy, Silva, Azpilicueta, Koulibaly, James, Kante, Jorginho, Mount, Chilwell, Sterling, Havertz.
    • Subs: Kepa, Kovacic, Pulisic, Loftus-Cheek, Chalobah, Broja, Ziyceh, Gallagher, Cucurella.
