Chelsea team news: Boost for Sarri as key man passed fit, trio should play vs Everton

Chelsea are back in Premier League action on Sunday afternoon with a tricky trip to face Everton at Goodison Park and the visitors will hope for maximum points to keep their top-four hopes alive.

The Blues are coming off the back of a big win over Dynamo Kiev in midweek, with the 5-0 victory on Thursday firing the Stamford Bridge outfit into the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

However, the Chelsea supporters will have their sights on the Premier League this afternoon, with victory giving the club a chance to leapfrog Manchester United into fifth place.

BBC Sport have confirmed that Gonzalo Higuain could be available to feature at Goodison after sitting out the European clash due to illness.

The Argentine’s potential availability will give Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri with a decision to make, especially after Olivier Giroud put in an impressive performance against Kiev on Thursday night.

Chelsea will surely revert back to their first-choice starting XI and the report assumes that stars such as Eden Hazard, Cesar Azpilicueta and David Luiz will play after being rested in midweek.

Victory on Merseyside would see the Blues move level on points with fourth-placed Arsenal and ensure that the race to qualify for next season’s Champions League goes down to the wire.
