Here we go!

1′ Everton 0-0 Chelsea

We are on our way to Goodison Park! The atmosphere is riveting inside the ground as the Everton faithful look to continue their support which saw them help their side remain in the Premier League last season.

Frank Lampard’s side start without a recognized striker as they are without Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Salomon Rondon. Abdoulaye Doucoure is also the only natural midfielder on show as Lampard makes the most of a thin squad.

Chelsea will want to start the season strongly after adding some quality new faces. Raheem Sterling is expected to receive some stick from the home crowd but has thrived in the past at this ground.

It’s the visitors who kick-off after both teams take the knee!

Koulibaly starts

Kalidou Koulibaly starts for Chelsea this afternoon. The centre-back signed from Napoli for £34 million and will provide plenty of experience in the defense alongside Thiago Silva and Cesar Azpilicueta.

Koulibaly was dominant in Italy, leading the Napoli defense week in, week out. However, it’s not only the quality on the pitch that leaves him as a wanted player, it’s his personality off it.

The center back has helped give coats to the homeless and ambulances to those who need it. The Athletic’s Simone Johnson and James Horncastle spoke to people who know exactly what Koulibaly is like away from the game.

This character is what will have attracted Chelsea to him and he is sure to provide exactly what is needed on and off the pitch for the Blues.
