Everton are set to take on Chelsea, in what is expected to be a long evening for the Toffees, who are still largely reeling from last season.

Frank Lampard is set to come up against his former club, less than two years on from his managerial departure.

The Chelsea legend, who has scored the most goals for the club in its history, confirmed earlier this week that Dominic Calvert-Lewin is out for around six weeks.

What is the expectation for Chelsea this season?

It’s been a rather odd summer for Chelsea, their transfer dealings were largely affected by the new change in ownership, with Roman Abramovich handing the reins to Todd Boehly after 19 years in charge.

They also weren’t helped by Romelu Lukaku, who they purchased for a club record fee last week doing everything in his power to leave, leaving the blues light up front for their opener.

They also lost star centre back Antonio Rudiger to Real Madrid, but have adequately replaced him with Kalidou Kouliblay, who was bought from Serie A outfit Napoli.

Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Slonina and Carney Chukwuemeka have also all joined.

The expectation for this season would be the Champions League. But, if Tuchel gets his preferred players in by the end of August, the title may not be out of the question.
