Chelsea welcome Everton to Stamford Bridge on Thursday night as they look to keep pace with Liverpool and Man City at the top of the Premier League.

The Blues were indebted to an injury-time spot-kick winner from Jorginho in their 3-2 victory over Leeds on Saturday, which could prove a pivotal moment in the title race with City and Liverpool also victorious at the weekend.

Chelsea boast a strong record against the Toffees in west London over the years, and Tuchel will be keen to avoid any slip-ups heading into a frantic Christmas period.

Here's how Chelsea could line up.

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Edouard Mendy (GK) - His form has dropped off after his heroics from earlier in the season.

Cesar Azpilicueta (CB) - Back in favour as Trevoh Chalobah is currently sidelined with an injury.

Thiago Silva (CB) - The experienced head at the heart of the Chelsea backline.

Antonio Rudiger (CB) - At the heat of the drama against Leeds, winning his side both penalties, which Jorginho converted.

2. Wing-backs & midfielders

Ruben Loftus-Cheek (CM) - Enjoying a run in the team in his favoured position amid Chelsea's injury woes.

3. Forwards

Mason Mount (RF) - The creative hub in the Chelsea forward line, capable of delivering the killer pass and scoring himself.

Romelu Lukaku (ST) - Hasn't quite looked himself since his return from injury, but Tuchel will view this as a good opportunity to get minutes back into his legs.

Timo Werner (LF) - Looks to have rediscovered his confidence in front of goal in recent weeks.
