Having safely sealed their place in the quarter-finals of the Europa League, Chelsea will now turn their attentions back to domestic matters as they look to close the gap on the top four in the Premier League.
Thursday night's 5-0 thrashing of Dynamo Kiev ensured that both possible routes to Champions League football next season remain alive, and the Blues would move level on points with fourth-placed Arsenal if they beat Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday.
The Gunners are not in action again until April, while Manchester United are tending to FA Cup duties this weekend, giving Maurizio Sarri's side the chance to steal a march on their rivals.
Here, Sports Mole rounds up Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the trip to Merseyside.
CHELSEA'S INJURY LIST
Status: Slight doubt
Type of injury: Illness
Possible return date: March 17
Gonzalo Higuain missed Thursday's match against Dynamo Kiev, although that may have been as much to do with giving him a rest as the illness he has been struggling with lately. Olivier Giroud's hat-trick in his absence could leave him with a fight to regain his place, though.
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: Unknown
Marco van Ginkel has not played for Chelsea since 2013 and is unlikely to ever do so again. Having spent most of his Blues career out on loan, the midfielder is currently sidelined by a serious knee injury.
CHELSEA'S SUSPENSION LIST
Chelsea have no players suspended for this game.
