EVERTON vs CHELSEA
Seamus Coleman and Leighton Baines are both in contention to return for Everton. Coleman (illness) was absent for last weekend’s defeat at Newcastle because of illness while Baines (back) has not featured since the start of February. Kurt Zouma will be unavailable to face his parent club while Phil Jagielka is unlikely to return until after the international break.
Gonzalo Higuain could return to contention for Chelsea after missing the Europa League win at Dynamo Kiev through illness. Blues head coach Maurizio Sarri is expected to restore the likes of Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Jorginho and Eden Hazard to his starting line-up.
