Are we finally ready to start the season?  Anybody?  Anybody?  Bueller?  Fabregas?


Everton starting lineup (4-3-1-2):
Tim Howard | Brendan Galloway, John Stones, Phil Jagielka, Seamus Coleman | Gareth Barry, Muhamed Besić, James McCarthy | Ross Barkley | Romelu Lukaku, Arouna Koné

Substitutes from: Joel Robles, Kevin Mirallas, Aaron Lennon, Steven Naismith, Gerard Deulofeu, Leon Osman, Ramiro Funes Mori

Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Asmir Begović | César Azpilicueta, John Terry, Kurt Zouma, Branislav Ivanović | Nemanja Matić, John Obi Mikel | Eden Hazard, Cesc Fàbregas, Pedro | Diego Costa

Substitutes from: Jamal Blackman, Radamel Falcao, Kenedy, Loïc Rémy, Willian, Gary Cahill, Ruben Loftus-Cheek


A few changes then to the lineup, with Zouma coming in to help handle Lukaku, Mikel adding a bit of steel to the midfield, and Fabregas getting pushed up to the attacking band.  Plenty of attacking options on the bench, should we need them.

Be excellent to each other.  Win or lose.  KTBFFH.
