Everton come into this game after the previous fixture against Arsenal ended in a 2-2 draw in front of their home fans. Roberto Martinez saw his men take a double lead early in the game, only to settle for a point against the north London club in the end.

Seamus Coleman gave the much needed lead to the Toffees early in the game as Steven Naismith extended the lead just before the break. However, Wenger introduced Olivier Giroud in the second half.

The Gunners' star player of the last season Aaron Ramsey scored in the 83rd minute before Giroud equalised for Arsenal in the dying moments of the match. The French international's goal saw Everton settle for a point.

Martinez would be hoping to avoid a similar fate against Chelsea on Saturday. The former Wigan Athletic boss would be hoping for a better result against Mourinho's side at Goodison Park.

Meanwhile, Chelsea enter this game after winning the second league fixture against Premier League newcomers Leicester City at Stamford Bridge. Summer signing Diego Costa opened the scoring just after an hour mark before Eden Hazard doubled the lead in the final quarter of the game.

The result saw the Blues maintain a perfect start to the league campaign - keeping 100% win record so far. The former Real Madrid manager guided Chelsea to win the opening game of the season against Burnley.

What Managers Say

Roberto Martinez: "I tried to have that conversation and, realistically, I would have liked him [Samuel Eto'o] to have 10 or 11 sessions before we put him in a competitive environment but I quite quickly learned that I was wasting my time; he wants to be helpful to the team straight away and he wants to be involved."

Jose Mourinho: " Everton are a very good team. They kept absolutely every player. They didn't sell one of the good players they have, and so many teams for sure were interested in buying some of their players. They believe in that and that's the most important thing."
