Gianluca Vialli has a virtually full-strength squad to choose from as Chelsea aim to bounce back from only their second defeat of the season against Wimbledon in the Worthington Cup quarter-final. Only Eddie Newton, close to a return after injury, and long-term absentee Pierluigi Casiraghi are out of the running so the only change from the line-up which drew 1-1 at home to Sheffield Wednesday last weekend could be the return of Dennis Wise from a four-match suspension, although Michael Duberry and Dan Petrescu will again be pushing for places.
EVERTON (from): Myhre, Ball, Watson, Short, Dunne, Materazzi, Cleland, Collins, Hutchison, Grant, Bakayoko, Cadamarteri, Oster, Simonsen, Jeffers, Milligan, Barmby, Bilic.
