The team chosen by Duncan Ferguson for the visit of Chelsea to Goodison Park showed just two changes from the Merseyside derby in midweek, with Theo Walcott and Morgan Schneiderlin coming in for Yerry Mina and Tom Davies. The club’s official Twitter channel @Everton shared the starting line-up an hour before kick-off.

One significant change that Ferguson did make, though, was to alter Everton’s formation to a straightforward 4-4-2 after Silva had started with a 5-4-1 in the defeat to Liverpool on Wednesday night, with Richarlison being moved alongside Dominic Calvert-Lewin in a two-man attack.
