Where to watch live

Kick-off is at 5:30pm GMT. Live coverage is available on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport 4K HD. Catch the highlights on Match of the Day 2 on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10:20pm GMT.


Following their 3-0 defeat at the hands of Arsenal at the Emirates, Chelsea have bounced back in the league. They have won the next four fixtures, which includes a 4-0 victory over Jose Mourinho's Manchester United at the Bridge.

Antonio Conte will be disappointed to suffer a 2-1 defeat at the hands of West Ham United in the EFL Cup clash, which saw them crash out of the tournament. However, they have been impressive in the league clash.

In the four matches played after the defeat at the hands of the Gunners, the Blues have scored nine goals and have not conceded a goal in the process. The former Juventus and Italy manager will be looking to extend that record when they take on the Merseyside club on Saturday.

Everton, on the other hand, have suffered two defeats and two draws in the last five league fixtures. Their only win during these matches came against West Ham United at home. Ronald Koeman will be hoping his side can extend that record to two wins in a row when they face Chelsea.

Romelu Lukaku will face his former side and will lead the Toffees' attack at Stamford Bridge. He was a target for Conte as Chelsea were keen on securing his signature last summer. However, the deal did not take shape and the Italian manager admitted that he does not regret not signing the Belgium international.

What managers say

Antonio Conte: "We have Diego, who is playing fantastic football - not only scoring goals but working a lot and very well for the team. I am seeing a complete player in Diego and it is fantastic for me and the team to have him in the team, and also because he is scoring a lot. I regret for nothing."

Ronald Koeman: "He was very honest in the summer, and that is what I like when I have talks with players. I did everything I could to keep him. But the final decision is down to the player and that's what happened. I am happy because he is scoring goals and doing well and that gives support to the manager."
