Chelsea FC XI vs Everton: Predicted lineup, confirmed team news, injury latest today

With Marc Cucurella having only been registered in time for the match against Everton, Thomas Tuchel believes Chelsea are in fine form this afternoon. 

After arriving at Cobham Training Center before the 12 o'clock Premier League deadline, the Brighton player who cost £62 million to acquire was in the gym. 

He will work out before the trip, but Kalidou Koulibaly and Raheem Sterling, two other recent additions, are probably going to start. 

Although the team's ailments remain unknown, a preferred starting lineup started to form during preseason. 

Sterling, who primarily played alongside Kai Havertz and Mason Mount in preseason, will be the focal point of the assault. 

The Blues did utilize a back four throughout the preseason,  they will probably continue with their preferred 3-5-2 formation.

Along with the two new additions, there will be a slew of familiar faces from the senior team, with Cucurella probably on the bench. 

Conor Gallagher and Armando Broja, who are returning loanees, will undoubtedly be benched as well. 

Dominic Calvert-Lewin of Everton will be sidelined for the next six weeks after suffering a "freak" knee injury on Tuesday during practice. 

Yerry Mina is available despite the absence of Seamus Coleman and the suspension of Salomon Rondon as a result of his red card against Brentford last year. 

Timo Werner and Armando Broja, two Chelsea strikers, will be examined for minor wounds. 

Kalidou Koulibaly and Raheem Sterling might make their debuts. 

They will have to rely on the supporters at Goodison Park to help them win this game, just like they did last time at the end of last season.

Their fans will give them a lift, but they can't help them by scoring goals.

Prediction: 0-2

Predicted Chelsea XI (3-4-3): Mendy; Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Koulibaly; James, Kante, Jorginho, Chilwell; Mount, Havertz, Sterling
