Everton vs Chelsea: How to watch on TV live stream, kick-off time, team news & predictions
Everton narrowly escaped relegation last term, earning themselves a season-opener against Chelsea on Saturday evening.
The Toffees, spearheaded by Chelsea's all-time leading scorer Frank Lampard, collected a crucial three points in this fixture last May. Thomas Tuchel's Blues waded through plumes of smoke that day at Goodison Park and spent much of the campaign's conclusion stumbling through the fog of uncertainty sparked by the club's high-profile sale.
After neither side quite enjoyed the summer reset they both envisaged, here's everything you need to know about their bout this weekend.

Everton team news
Dominic Calvert-Lewin assumed even greater importance following the summer departure of Richarlison - the match winner against Chelsea last season. However, Everton's number nine has been ruled out of the first game with a 'freak injury'. Lampard was deliberately vague as provided no further time scale.
Alongside Calvert-Lewin, Salomon Rondon is Everton's only other senior striker but the Venezuelan is still suspended following a reckless red card against Brentford in May.
Seamus Coleman has been recovering from a groin injury throughout the summer, opening a spot in defence for Nathan Patterson. Yerry Mina and Tom Davies are also doubts while nursing knocks.
Back-up goalkeeper Asmir Begovic twisted his wrist during training and is set to be on the sidelines with Andros Townsend, whose knee injury may keep him out for as long as eight months.

Chelsea team news
The Chelsea hierarchy may not have stocked Tuchel with all the recruits he desires quite yet, but the vast majority of the players at his disposal are expected to be fit for the trip to Merseyside.
Armando Broja emerged from an awkward fall during training unscathed. Ross Barkley may well be available against his former side after Tuchel described his hamstring problem as "more of a discomfort than an injury."
However, Timo Werner is a doubt with a more serious hamstring issue.

Chelsea Starting 11: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Silva, Koulibaly; James, Kante, Jorginho, Chilwell; Mount, Havertz, SterlingBench: Arrizabalaga, Emerson, Gallagher, Loftus-Cheek, Hudson-Odoi, Pulisic, Ziyech
Everton vs Chelsea score prediction
Everton emerged with four points from their league meetings with Chelsea last season despite getting outshot 14 to 40 across the two games.
Stripped of Richarlison and Calvert-Lewin, the club's top scorers across the past four years, Everton may struggle to rediscover that clinical edge when they host the reigning Club World Cup champions.
