Europa League winner Chelsea is still without Eden Hazard (hamstring) and John Terry (ankle), who both sat out Wednesday’s triumph in Amsterdam after limping off against Aston Villa last Saturday.

Rafa Benitez has confirmed that Ryan Bertrand (knee) will also miss the match. Demba Ba is in contention to start start up front after being ineligible to face Benfica in midweek.

David Moyes, also in his last game in charge, has few injury concerns to contend with, though Phil Neville (knee), who has been sidelined since March, and Leon Osman (also knee) will both miss the match.

The Toffees are set to keep the same XI from last week’s win over West Ham, with Victor Anichebe leading the line in front of Marouane Fellaini.

  • Everton is guaranteed a sixth-placed finish in the Premier League and will finish above rival Liverpool for the second successive season, the first time they’ve done so in over 50 years.
  • David Moyes has never won at Stamford Bridge with Everton in 13 attempts in all competitions. 
  • The Toffees are this season’s draw specialists, with 15 in the Premier League.
