With Crystal Palace having already booked their slot at Wembley for the FA Cup semi-finals, attention turns to the remaining six teams in the tournament this weekend. And first up we have Everton vs. Chelsea, who will do battle to join the Eagles in the home of English football with what’s sure to be a tough encounter at Goodison Park.
There are reasons for optimism and pessimism in both camps though, with the home side having played well in an attacking sense but failed to keep the ball out at the other end. Meanwhile, Chelsea’s form has been much better in recent weeks, albeit they have traditionally struggled on the blue side of Merseyside.

The big news from the home side comes in the shape of John Stones being dropped to the bench. Former Chelsea man, Romelu Lukaku, starts up top.
The travelling side continue with Kenedy at left-back, while Diego Costa is once again fit enough to start up front.
