What squad will Chelsea, Everton play?
Chelsea will march to Liverpool with any squad, surely only Lampard knows. Quality signings this summer have helped Chelsea have a force thick enough to fight in all the arenas they play in. But it is worth noting that the regular starting players and the reserve players when sent on the pitch all had very good performances and it was difficult for manager Frank Lampard to make his decision.
This must have been a pleasant headache for the former England midfielder. The season is long and the strength of the force in a year of volatility because of the COVID 19 pandemic is likely to help Chelsea do the right thing this season.

By that time, Liverpool’s city team were flying high with the form of James Rodriguez. But Everton don’t have the same thick enough force as Chelsea. Their alternatives are not working and that is why Everton are falling behind without a brake at the moment. James, Richarlison are still key for The Toffer to win, but there is no guarantee for them if these players are injured or bookings
