Everton vs Chelsea team news: Diego Costa starts for the Blues as Romelu Lukaku faces former club
Samuel Eto'o will start on the bench for his new club
Saturday 30 August 2014
Diego Costa has recovered from a muscular injury and will start for Chelsea against Everton against Goodison Park.
The striker, who has scored two in two matches since a £32m move to Stamford Bridge, was battling an injury he picked up in training.
But Jose Mourinho has named him in his starting line-up for the match at Goodison Park.
Mourinho has made two changes to the team that beat Leicester last week, taking a more defensive approach, with Ramires coming in for Oscar and Willian replacing Andre Schurrle.
For Everton, Romelu Lukaku will play against his former club, while Everton's other former Chelsea striker Samuel Eto'o will start from the bench.
Roberto Martinez makes one other change, with Aiden McGeady coming in for Steven Pienaar who was injured after just 10 minutes against Arsenal last week.
Everton: Howard, Coleman, Baines, Jagielka, Distin, Barry, McCarthy, Mirallas, McGeady, Naismith, Lukaku.
Subs: Joel, Gibson, Eto'o, Besic, Osman, Stones, Alcaraz.
Chelsea: Courtois, Ivanovic, Terry, Cahill, Azpilicueta, Fabregas, Matic, Ramires, Hazard, Willian, Costa.
Subs: Cech, Filipe Luis, Zouma, Mikel, Schurrle, Salah, Drogba.
