Everton vs Chelsea: Premier League score prediction, lineups, live stream, TV channel, h2h
Chelsea need a result on Merseyside this afternoon as Maurizio Sarri’s Blues face Everton hoping to boost their chances of a Premier League top-four finish.
 
The Blues had the perfect chance to make themselves favourites for a top-four spot last weekend, 
 
but slipped up with a 1-1 home draw against Wolves as Arsenal beat Manchester United.

Maurizio Sarri’s side can still go level on points with fourth-placed Arsenal against Marco Silva’s inconsistent Everton side.
 
However, the Toffees’ recent stalemate against Liverpool shows that the Merseyside club have the tactical know-how to make this a cagey game for Chelsea.
 
Seamus Coleman and Leighton Baines are both in contention to return for Everton as they welcome Chelsea on Sunday, live on Sky Sports.
 
Coleman was absent for last weekend’s 3-2 defeat at Newcastle because of illness while Baines has not featured since the start of February because of a back injury.
 
Everton drew 0-0 with Chelsea in the reverse fixture and Marco Silva would like to see a similar performance this weekend.
 
Chelsea cruised into the quarter-finals of the Europa League on Thursday, beating Dynamo Kiev 5-0 and winning the tie 8-0 on aggregate.

They are also the only team in the top-four race to be playing in the Premier League this weekend and could go into fourth with a win on Sunday.

Gonzalo Higuain could return to contention after missing Thursday’s 5-0 Europa League win at Dynamo Kiev.
 
Argentinian striker Higuain did not travel for the European tie due to illness and faces competition to regain his starting spot following Olivier Giroud’s hat-trick in Ukraine.
 
Sarri, who appears to have no fresh selection issues, is expected to restore the likes of Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Jorginho and Eden Hazard to his starting line-up at Goodison Park.
 
Seamus Coleman and Leighton Baines are both in contention to return for Everton.
