Everton - Chelsea Preview: Hosts looking to finish seventh as speculation continues over Carlo Ancelotti's future

Everton - Chelsea Preview: Hosts looking to finish seventh as speculation continues over Carlo Ancelotti's future

Italian boss may lose his job even if he picks up a victory over David Moyes' side, which is unbeaten in 10 league matches at Goodison Park.


PROBABLE LINE-UPS

Everton (4-5-1)
Howard; Hibbert, Jagielka, Distin, Baines; Coleman, Heitinga, Neville, Osman, Arteta; Anichebe.

With Tim Cahill having missed out away to West Brom with a foot complaint last week, a late decision will be taken on whether the talismanic Australian can recover in time for the final game of the season.

Both Louis Saha and Marouanne Fellaini will miss out with ankle trouble.

The Toffees are also set to be without Diniyar Bilyaletdinov, whose harsh red card last week sees him suspended against last season’s champions.

Chelsea (4-3-3)
Cech; Ivanovic, Alex, Terry, Cole; Ramires, McEachran, Lampard; Malouda, Torres, Drogba.


Josh McEachran looks set to be a part lineup again for the Blues, with Carlo Ancelotti looking to the future, even if he is not necessarily going to be a part of it.

Jose Bosingwa is Chelsea’s only player missing through injury, so the Italian looks likely to chop and change ahead of their clash with David Moyes’ men.


DID YOU KNOW?

  • Everton has won its last three games on the last day of the season.
  • If David Moyes’ side was to win, both clubs would have 35 home victories over the other since the beginning of the Football League.
  • The Toffees are on a 10-match unbeaten run at home in the league.
  • With 11 assists, Leighton Baines has set up more goals than any other Premier League defender this season.
  • Chelsea has only beaten Everton once in its last eight meetings.
  • Only one of the last five meetings between the two sides has not ended in a draw.
  • Carlo Ancelotti’s men have the best defensive record in the league, conceding only 32 goals in 37 matches. This is an average of 0.86 goals-per-game.
  • The visitors have more 2-0 wins than anybody else in the Premier League, securing the result five times.
  • If the table was based on halftime scores, Chelsea would be out of the top four and Everton would be languishing in 14th.
