Everton vs Chelsea LIVE: Premier League latest score and updates

Premier League: Five essential picks for your fantasy team

Follow live coverage as Everton host Chelsea on the opening weekend of the 2022/23 Premier League season.

The Toffees only narrowly avoided the drop a year ago and will surely be desperate to start off the new campaign on the front foot to quiet any talk of similar worries this time around. Thomas Tuchel’s Blues enjoyed an altogether more positive season although twin defeats to Liverpool in the Carabao and FA Cup finals left them without any silverware.

Former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard’s new side have been rocked by the news that Dominic Calvert-Lewin will miss around “six weeks” due to a knee injury suffered in training. With Solomon Rondon also out due to a suspension from last season, it means Demarai Gray will lead the line. Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly make their debuts for the visitors with Marc Cucurella also signed in time to be registered in the squad, though Tuchel has only named him on the bench as Ben Chilwell comes into the side at left wing-back.

Follow all the latest updates from Goodison Park:

Everton 0-0 Chelsea

14 mins: Ben Godfrey is still down on the floor being treated by the Everton medical team. It seems as though he’s gone over on his ankle and is in a bit of discomfort to say the least.

Everton 0-0 Chelsea

12 mins: Pickford and Havertz both seem fine but Godfrey has stayed on down. It doesn’t look as though the right-back will continue and Mason Holgate is hurridly being prepped on the sidelines.

Everton 0-0 Chelsea

9 mins: The question mark over this Everton team is where are the goals coming from? Dwight McNeil was a decent wide player for Burnley but he’s on debut.

Demarai Gray and Anthony Gordon are good players but not the most clinical in front of goal. Dominic Calvert-Lewin is a big miss.

Kai Havertz looks to drive into the box from the left-side byline but he’s tackled by Ben Godfrey as Jordan Pickford comes to close him down as well. All three players collide with each other and Godfrey comes off worse for wear.

Everton 0-0 Chelsea

6 mins: Sterling shifts the ball inside of James Tarkowski and draws Everton’s new centre-back into a foul on the right wing.

Reece James swings the set piece into the middle of the box and targets Kai Havertz. Abdoulaye Doucoure gets up above the striker and heads the ball down safely before Jordan Pickford grabs hold of it to end the attack.

Everton 0-0 Chelsea

3 mins: Raheem Sterling moves over to the right side to link up with Reece James who plays the ball inside to N’Golo Kante. Kante attempts a first time pass back to Sterling but sends it wide of the forward and out of play.

Sterling gives him a clap for the idea though with Chelsea hoping to move the ball quickly through midfield and work around the Everton players.

Kick off: Everton 0-0 Chelsea

Chelsea get the ball rolling at Goodison Park. It’s a Blues debut fr Raheem Sterling and Kalidu Koulibaly. They’ve got some big shoes to fill, especially the centre-back, but can they help Thomas Tuchel’s men challenge for the title this year?

On paper this should be an easy win for Chelsea but they were undone here last season when Everton were in the midst of a relegation battle.

Can the Toffees get past them once again?

Marcos Alonso, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Timo Werner are among the Chelsea players left out of the squad today.

New signing Carney Chukwuemeka, defender Malang Sarr and fringe options such as Ross Barkley and Michy Batshuayi are yet others – surely a few are set to leave soon.

Everton vs Chelsea: 15 minutes to kick off

We are fast approaching kick-off at Goodison Park and Chelsea have already seen a marker laid down for them by Tottenham, a rival for at least the top four this season, and possibly more. They’ve hammered Southampton in their own opener, so it’s up to Tuchel’s side to keep pace with a win of their own early on.

As for Everton, it’s about survival first and foremost for them after a dismal campaign last time out.

To that end, it’s notable that Bournemouth, Fulham and Leeds have all earned at least a point today.
