Wow – Everton & Chelsea combined XI closer than you’d think!
Chelsea and Everton might not feel like a clash between two of the Premier League’s big boys, but judging on form so far this season, the Toffees get an incredible five of their players in this combined line up…
GK: Thibaut Courtois (Chelsea)
Injured now and possibly set for four months out, Thibaut Courtois is still the best goalkeeper at both of these clubs.
DR: Seamus Coleman (Everton)
One of the best right-backs in the Premier League and linked with Chelsea in the past, Seamus Coleman is certainly in ahead of Branislav Ivanovic at the moment, with the Serbian starting very badly this term.
DL: Leighton Baines (Everton)
A quality performer at left-back with great delivery from set pieces and an eye for goal, Everton’s Leighton Baines is a better all-round option than Cesar Azpilicueta.
Chelsea predicted line up vs Everton: Courtois injured, new signing to make debut, shock change up front
