Chelsea vs. Everton: Confirmed lineups and discussion

Mike Hewitt

Chelsea can stay top with a win at Stamford Bridge

Jose Mourinho's side dropped three points in their first meeting with Everton this season, despite being the far better team on the day. They'll be hoping to leave Stamford Bridge with a better result, as a victory over Roberto Martinez's men will leave Chelsea atop the table as March gets underway.

With that in mind, the managers have selected the following lineups for Saturday's match:

Chelsea: Petr Cech, Branislav Ivanovic, Gary Cahill, John Terry, Cesar Azpilicueta, Nemanja Matic, Frank Lampard, Willian, Oscar, Eden Hazard, Samuel Eto'o

Subs: Mark Schwarzer, Ashley Cole, Ramires, Andre Schurrle, Mohamed Salah, Fernando Torres, Demba Ba

Everton: Tim Howard, Leighton Baines, Sylvain Distin, Phil Jagielka, Seamus Coleman, Gareth Barry, James McCarthy, Steven Pienaar, Leon Osman, Kevin Mirallas, Lacina Traore

Subs: Joel Robles, Ross Barkley, John Stones, Tony Hibbert, Aiden McGeady, Gerard Deulofeu, Steven Naismith
