Premier League Champions, Chelsea are in brilliant form ahead of their trip to a resurgent Everton side at Goodison Park on Sunday.

The Blues face a stern test against a rejuvenated Everton side who remain unbeaten since the appointment of Sam Allardyce having won 5 of their last six and drawn just one.

Although, the defending champions are also in great form having won 8 out of their last 10 Premier League games and will be hoping to secure their third straight win in a row.

However, the Blues will be without the services of summer signing Alvaro Morata who picked up his fifth booking of the season against the Cherries in the Quarter Final of the Carabao Cup.

He was booked for excessive celebration after scoring the winning goal to send the Blues into the last four of the Carabao Cup.

The Blues will now face London rivals Arsenal in a two-legged tie in the semi-finals of the competition next month.

The Spanish international will be a huge miss for the champions having scored 11 goals in 24 appearances for the Blues across all competitions, but Antonio Conte will likely revert to his 3-4-3 formation of which Belgian superstar, Eden Hazard will be used in a false nine row ahead of natural number nine Michy Batshuayi.

Wantaway defender, David Luiz is still expected to be out with the Brazilian yet to recover from a knee injury that has kept him on the sidelines since late October.
