Sports Mole looks at how Chelsea could line up in Saturday's Premier League clash with Everton.

Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly are both in line to make their Chelsea debuts in Saturday's Premier League clash with Everton at Goodison Park.

Blues boss Thomas Tuchel could name close to the same side that took to the field for the first whistle of their last match with Udinese on July 29.

Sterling is in line to feature alongside Kai Havertz and Mason Mount in a front three, while Koulibaly could join Thiago Silva and Cesar Azpilicueta at the back.

There has been a host of speculation surrounding Azpilicueta's future in recent weeks, with the Spaniard said to be wanted by Barcelona, but he is now expected to remain at Stamford Bridge and should start here.

Reece James and Ben Chilwell are set to feature as the wing-backs in a 3-4-3 formation, with N'Golo Kante likely to be joined by Mateo Kovacic in the middle of the park.

Chelsea only have one fitness doubt ahead of this match, with Timo Werner struggling to overcome a hamstring complaint.

However, even if he is fit, Werner is unlikely to be considered for a start amid the speculation surrounding his future, with the German thought to be keen to depart this summer.

Callum Hudson-Odoi is likely to be on the bench for Chelsea, while Conor Gallagher will hope to be involved following a successful loan spell at Crystal Palace last season.

Chelsea possible starting lineup: Mendy; Azpilicueta, T Silva, Koulibaly; James, Kante, Kovacic, Chilwell; Mount, Havertz, Sterling
