EVERTON v CHELSEA BETTING PREVIEW
Everton are 12th with 10 games left in the Barclays Premier League and were beaten in the Capital One Cup semi-finals. They enter this clash on the back of last weekend's 3-2 home loss to West Ham when they threw away a two-goal lead and missed penalty. Roberto Martinez is coming under pressure with Everton in the bottom half of the table
Everton have a number of fitness doubts for the match, including Bryan Oviedo with a chest infection. Kevin Mirallas is suspended following his red card against the Hammers while Tyias Browning remains sidelined until the end of the season. Leighton Baines and Gerard Deulofeu could both come into the starting XI. Aaron Lennon is doubtful and will undergo a late fitness test.
Chelsea are still unbeaten under Guus Hiddink in domestic competitions. Anyway, they did suffer a second 2-1 defeat on Wednesday when a reverse against Paris Saint Germain sent them out of the Champions League. In FA Cup the Blues have beaten Scunthorpe United and MK Dons 2-0 and 5-1 respectively, they booked their place in the last eight with another 5-1 success against a weakened Manchester City.
Captain Terry returns to contention after a six-match absence with a hamstring problem. Striker Diego Costa is undergoing treatment for a hip problem which forced him off last time out and he is a doubt for the trip. Eden Hazard is also carrying a knock and may not be risked. Hiddink must decide between Bertrand Traore, Loic Remy and Alexandre Pato to lead the line as the perennially injured Radamel Falcao remains out along with Kurt Zouma. Kenedy is expected to get the nod at left-back again.
Everton have won just one of their last five meetings with Chelsea in all competitions, although that did come earlier this season when the Toffees recorded a home victory in September against a struggling Chelsea. Later this season these two sides recorded a 3-3 draw in January's Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge.
