What channel is Everton v Chelsea Premier League match on? Kick off time, live stream and team news
Check out how to watch Everton v Chelsea in the Premier League this week, including TV details, team news, predictions and odds.
Everton's high-emotion victory over Chelsea at Goodison Park in May was a key moment in their successful survival push and Frank Lampard will hope for a repeat performance and result when his side host the Blues in their first match on the 2022/23 Premier League TV schedule.
Lampard will, of course, be without the matchwinner from that game after Richarlison was sold to Tottenham in the summer and Dominic Calvert-Lewin's injury will accentuate his absence as with Salomon Rondon suspended, it looks as though Dele Alli may play as a false nine.
The signings of former Burnley duo James Tarkowski and Dwight McNeil should help to solve their issues at either end of the pitch but you'd imagine the manager will want more players through the door before the window closes.
That sentiment has been echoed by the man in the Chelsea dugout but the dominoes do now seem to be starting to fall for Thomas Tuchel in the first summer under new ownership while it's hard to argue with the additions of Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly.
There have been some big-name exits as well, including both Antonio Rudiger and Romelu Lukaku, but more shopping will need to be done if the last season's third-place side are to close the gap on Liverpool and Man City.
The Blues have not been wholly convincing in pre-season but a strong opening day performance will mean that will be quickly forgotten.

Our prediction: Everton v Chelsea
The Everton fans will be breathing a sigh of relief that Goodison Park will be playing host to their Premier League opener on Saturday as for long periods last term it did look as though they could be destined to drop down into the Championship.
Lampard will be keen to leave last season's struggles behind but a repeat of that 1-0 victory against his former club would be the dream start to the new campaign.
There have been murmurings of discontent at Chelsea over the summer, with Tuchel lamenting their lack of action in the transfer market, but they will still be the favourites on Saturday afternoon.
It looked a tough ask anyway but without Calvert-Lewin, the Toffees face an uphill battle on Saturday.
