The first Saturday of the new season ends at Goodison Park tonight as Chelsea play host to Frank Lampard’s Everton.
The Toffees endured a torrid campaign last season which saw Rafa Benitez sacked in January before Lampard did just enough to keep them in the Premier League.
Optimism on Merseyside has not increased much over the summer after a tough window and poor pre-season results.

- Everton XI: Pickford, Tarkowski, Mina, Godfrey, Patterson, Doucoure, Iwobi, Mykolenko, McNeil, Gordon, Gray.
- Replacements: Begovic, Holgate, Keane, Allan, Alli, Gbamin, Vinagre, Warrington, Mills.
