Everton (EVE) host Chelsea (CHE) in their opening game of the Premier League 2022-23 season at Goodison Park on Saturday, August 6. The match will start at 10:00 PM IST.

EVE vs CHE Dream11 prediction

Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea will start as favourites against Everton. The Blues have won 27 of the 60 Premier League matches between the two teams.

However, Everton won’t be simple pushovers given their current run of form against Chelsea. The Toffees have won their last four home league games while playing the Blues, and have kept clean sheets in five of their last seven home matches in all competitions.

Everton are unbeaten in the opening games of their last 10 Premier League campaigns but Chelsea will look to put a halt to the run with a convincing win on Saturday.

EVE vs CHE Dream11 team tips for Premier League 2022-23

Top tip: Best forward

Raheem Sterling will be the new face of the Chelsea attack, and fantasy players will be eager to draft him into their respective teams. The England forward, with 109 goals in 320 Premier League games, will begin his Chelsea stint at a price of 9.0 credits.

Top tip: Best midfielder 

Demarai Gray is a top pick for this contest. The Everton winger, listed as a midfielder in fantasy football, has netted 15 times in his Premier League career and will hope to open his goal account against Chelsea. Gray - at 9.0 credits - is our recommendation ahead of Chelsea’s Mason Mount.

Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper

At 8.5 credits, new Chelsea central defender Kalidou Koulibaly is an excellent selection for this match. The Senegal international is known for his rock-solid defensive prowess in the heart of the defensive line and will be tasked with keeping the likes of Dele Ali at bay.

For a goalkeeper, Jordan Pickford should be slightly favoured over Chelsea’s Edouard Mendy. The English stopper will constantly be on his toes to keep the likes of Kai Havertz and Raheem Sterling from scoring goals, and he is priced at 8.5 credits.

EVE vs CHE probable playing XI

EVE playing XI (probable): Jordan Pickford (goalkeeper); Nathan Patterson, James Tarkowski, Michael Keane, Ben Godfrey; Vitaliy Mykolenko, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Alex Iwobi; Anthony Gordon, Dele Ali, Dwight McNeil

CHE playing XI (probable): Edouard Mendy (Goalkeeper); Cesar Azpilicueta (captain), Thiago Silva, Kalidou Koulibaly; Reece James, N'Golo Kante, Jorginho, Ben Chilwell; Mason Mount, Kai Havertz, Raheem Sterling
