This will be the first time that Frank Lampard will meet Chelsea after being sacked by Chelsea last season.
Frank Lampard will be expecting a favor from his former Chelsea, a Club Where he played almost of his entire career as a player as his side battles relegation.
Everton is currently 18th on the Premier League table with 29 points five points behind 17th and 16th place Leeds United and Burnley respectively with two extra games in hand.
The Merseyside Club has won one only match in their last five Premier League match with the only win coming against Manchester United at the Goodison Park.
Everton was able to prevent Liverpool from having a shot on target in the first of the Merseyside derby despite losing 2-0 to Liverpool at Anfield.
Frank Lampard was not happy after he claimed his side was denied a penalty in the second half after Anthony Gordon was brought down by Matip in the second half and suggested that the penalty would have been given if Mohammed Salah was the player who was pulled down.
Thomas Tuchel was disappointed in his attackers in their 1-1 draw with Manchester United.
Chelsea dominated the entire match and got a deserving lead through Marcos Alonso but Cristiano equalized two minutes later.
The Blues could have won the match by more than two goals but Timo Werner and Kai Havertz failed to convert their chances much to the disappointment of their coach.
Thomas Tuchel’s side is third on the League Table six points above fourth-place Arsenal, a win against Everton could seal their top-four finish this season.
Only Manchester City has a better away form than Chelsea this season. However, Everton has beaten Chelsea in their last three home matches against them.
