Chelsea vs Everton live is a very exciting game to watch. Both teams are colliding this Saturday. Chelsea under Thomas Tuchel is exciting to watch, they made an impressive start under Thomas Tuchel. Chelsea are looking for 6th win in a row. Liverpool fans are not happy with the situation of N’Golo Kante under Thomas Tuchel.
Diego Simeone’s side offers a much greater threat than any opponents Chelsea have encountered during Tuchel’s short reign. Kante’s protective abilities should, therefore, be called upon. His Southampton inclusion means that Mateo Kovacic gets a rest. Along with Jorginho in midfield, the 26-year-old has been outstanding in the past month and can not be risked with the looming European contest.

Chelsea predicted XI vs Southampton:
Mendy; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Kante, Chilwell; Mount, Giroud, Ziyech
Chelsea: Tammy Abraham is out with the ankle issue he picked up on Monday night against Newcastle. But on Thursday, Thiago Silva and Kai Havertz were both back in training, sparking suggestions. That they could be involved in St Mary’s. Ahead of a crucial time. However, Tuchel is unlikely to take any chances with Silva, suggesting that Andreas Christensen will continue at the heart of the defense, with Marcos Alonso possibly getting the nod over Ben Chilwell as the left-sided wing-back again.
Olivier Giroud is expected to take Abraham’s spot at the tip of the attack, while Edouard Mendy is expected to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga between the sticks.

Southampton: During Thursday’s press conference, Southampton manager Hasenhuttl revealed that Kyle Walker-Peters is out for a few weeks due to injury. While Ibrahima Diallo and Theo Walcott remain sidelined for the clash. Also still missing are Michael Obafemi and William Smallbone, but after a suspension, Alexandre Jankewitz, who was given a red card against Man United at Old Trafford, is available. As a substitute for Walker-Peters, Jack Stephens could come into the side, although with Che Adams possibly lining up alongside Danny Ings. There could also be a move in the final third.
