Chelsea will still be smarting from crashing out of the Champions League on March 9 to Paris St. Germain 4-2 on aggregate. In that defeat, The Pensioners lost two of their star players, Eden Hazard and Diego Costa to injury, so both are rated doubtful to play.
Everton on the other hand is welcoming back a host of first team players returning from injury, including Aaron Lennon, Gareth Barry and Tom Cleverley. However, Bryan Oviedo is likely to be missing after suffering with chest pains which saw the defender rushed to hospital on March 10.
One man out to prove a point against his former employees is Everton’s main goalscoring threat, Romelu Lukaku. Chelsea famously sold him to Everton in 2014 for $40 million, which at the time seemed a steep fee. However, since then Lukaku has scored 59 goals, and is really enjoying his breakout year this season finding the net 23 times in 35 games in all competitions.
But Chelsea shouldn’t come into this game feeling too sorry for themselves. Guus Hiddink‘s men still have players with the potential to do damage to Everton’s defensive line. Cesc Fabregas can pick out a pass through the eye of a needle and they will need his playmaking skills to come to the fore if they are to win this one.
Cup games are hard to call — especially with these two teams who are both capable of the win. It’ll be about who turns up and how well the star players play.
