Everton confirmed XI v Chelsea: Dominic Calvert-Lewin misses out
Sean Dyche has named his Everton XI to take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, 18 March in the 5:30pm kick-off.
The Toffees boss has been unable to include Dominic Calvert-Lewin due to an injury despite him being in contention to play.
He has missed out completely, not even making the bench for the visitors.
Need a point
Playing Chelsea is never going to be easy for Everton and Dyche will know that as it’s one of the games he might as well write off.
That said, getting a point from this one will be a welcome result and something that they must challenge for.

Chelsea have been struggling of late and the number of injury concerns on their side makes them a weaker side than they usually are.
They may have been signed for a lot of money but they’ve not adapted under the new manager just yet and that could be a cause for worry for Potter.
The home fans will be edgy if things don’t go their way initially and an early Everton goal will be perfect to silence them.
Hopefully, they can trouble the London club and make it a trip worth remembering for their away fans as they’re going to be loud from start to finish.
