Everton v Chelsea: match preview | Premier League


Old acquaintances must be forgotten by Frank Lampard as he strives to keep Everton afloat against his previous employers, and the club where he cemented legendary status over a 13-year playing career. Having lost all seven away games under Lampard Everton, who could be five points adrift of Burnley come kick off, simply cannot afford to drop points in their three remaining home fixtures. Chelsea were wasteful in their draw at Manchester United on Thursday but possess enough attacking options to capitalise on the rising pressure at Goodison Park. Andy Hunter
