Chelsea are aiming for a fourth win in a row when Everton visit Stamford Bridge on Saturday after finally finding some form under Graham Potter.

The Blues were in crisis at the start of the month, but have turned things around with wins against Leeds, Borussia Dortmund and Leicester to reach the Champions League quarter-finals and narrow the gap to the top six in the Premier League to five points.

Everton ended a three-match winless run with a 1-0 victory over Brentford last weekend, but the Toffees are still far from safe and sit just one point above the relegation zone.

Chelsea won the first meeting of the season 1-0 back in August thanks to a Jorginho penalty.

Kick-off is at 5.30pm GMT. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League wherever you are.

Team news

Chelsea still have a lengthy injury list, with Armando Broja, Cesar Azpilicueta, Edouard Mendy, Mason Mount, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Raheem Sterling and Thiago Silva facing problems of varying severities. But N’Golo Kante is available again and starts on the bench.

Everton are without Andros Townsend, while Nathan Patterson and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are not ready to return either.

Chelsea XI: Kepa; Fofana, Koulibaly, Badiashile; James, Kovacic, Enzo Fernandez, Chilwell; Pulisic, Havertz, Joao Felix.

Everton XI: Pickford; Coleman, Tarkowski, Keane, Godfrey; Iwobi, Onana, Gueye, Doucoure, McNeil; Gray.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a Premier League fixture, then you won't be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Premier League, FourFourTwo currently recommends:


ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS5 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
