Everton vs Chelsea LIVE: Jorginho gets Wembley revenge on Pickford with penalty opener, Sterling goal ruled out for offside as Godfrey suffers horror injury August 6, 2022 – Posted in: Soccer

The first Saturday of the new season will conclude at Goodison Park this evening as Frank Lampard’s Everton host Chelsea.

The Toffees endured a torrid campaign last term which saw Rafa Benitez sacked in January before Lampard did just enough to keep them in the Premier League.

Optimism on Merseyside has not grown much over the summer following a difficult window and some poor pre-season results.

  • Everton XI: Pickford, Tarkowski, Mina, Godfrey, Patterson, Doucoure, Iwobi, Mykolenko, McNeil, Gordon, Gray.
