Antonio Conte has made eight changes to the side that beat Bournemouth in the midweek cup game as Chelsea prepare to face Everton at Goodison Park.

Michy Batshuayi returns to the bench, with Eden Hazard playing in the False Nine role. Cesar Azpilicueta dons the armband, with Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen completing the back-three. Thibaut Courtois and N’Golo Kante are the other big name players returning.

Everton boss Sam Allardyce, on the other hand, has made three changes to the side that beat Swansea City last weekend, with the in-form Wayne Rooney a surprise absentee.
