Bernard and Walcott must start against Chelsea today

Everton have been one of the form teams in the Premier League in recent times as they continue impress under the guidance of Marco Silva. 

The Toffees managed to return to winning ways against Brighton and Hove Albion last time out at Goodison Park as they secured a 3-1 win over the Seagulls.

Interestingly, Everton will travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea in their next Premier League fixture. The Blues are currently in the race for the Premier League title and remain unbeaten in the top-flight this season, so the Toffees will find it difficult to come away with a result.

With that in mind, Marco Silva must get his team selection right by selecting these TWO Everton stars…

Bernard

Bernard has been one of the standout performers for Everton in the current campaign, with two assists to his name at this moment in time.

However, the Brazilian didn’t enjoy a very successful time of things against Brighton last time out as he found himself playing in the shadows. But, this shouldn’t affect his position in the starting lineup to face Chelsea, as his pace and skills could really trouble Maurizio Sarri’s side later on today.

Theo Walcott

Theo Walcott was another player that had a quiet game against Brighton and Hove Albion last time out. The Englishman struggled to contribute in the final third as his last pass would always let him down, which is something that he should have hopefully addressed prior to today’s game.

Indeed, the forward could really cause Marcus Alonso problems down the left-hand side of the Blues’ defence as one of the quickest players in the Premier League.
