  3. Post update

    Everton 3-1 Chelsea

    Chelsea had 61% of possession but only managed two shots on target at Goodison Park, one in each half. 

    They did have 15 shots at goal but, before people start talking about a fake result, Everton managed 14, with nine on target.

  4. Player reaction

    Everton 3-1 Chelsea

    Everton forward Steven Naismith, speaking to BT Sport: “There was some interest in me on transfer deadline day and it’s always hard when you’re not playing but the manager decided he wanted to keep me. Hopefully I showed my worth today.”

    Everton defender Phil Jagielka, speaking to BT Sport: “John Stones has been supreme all season. There has been a lot of talk about him but all the players have backed him. He’s been playing really well and that shows what kind of character he is.”

  5. "Jose is under real, real pressure"

    Everton 3-1 Chelsea

    Chris Sutton

    Former Blackburn striker on Final Score

    "That result was very unlike Chelsea. Jose won't be going anywhere, but you cannot afford to start the Premier League sluggishly and they have done. They are treading water, or really going backwards. 

    "This is the first time in his Chelsea career that he has been under real, real pressure."

  6. Post update

    Everton 3-1 Chelsea

    So, Everton are up to third, for a couple of hours at least, after that win. Chelsea drop two places to 15th and could in theory drop lower. The champions could also find themselves 11 points behind Manchester City if the leaders beat Crystal Palace.

  7. Post update

    Everton 3-1 Chelsea

    Jimmy Armfield

    BBC Radio 5 live at Goodison Park

    "What a terrific show by Steven Naismith. He will long remember the day he got three against the champions. And John Stones' performance says so much about his maturity. 

    "Chelsea don't look like their former selves. They were very thin until Nemanja Matic's goal. Jose Mourinho really has to sort this one out very quickly. His first priority? Defence."

  8. FULL-TIME

    Everton 3-1 Chelsea

    Chelsea lost three times in the Premier League in the whole of last season. They have now lost three of their first five games of this campaign.

  9. Post update

    Everton 3-1 Chelsea

    Everton's hat-trick hero Steven Naismith is lucky to avoid a more serious injury after Asmir Begovic comes off his line to collect a high ball into the box. Only seconds left...

  10. YELLOW CARD

    Everton 3-1 Chelsea

    Diego Costa gets his name in Andre Marriner's book, bringing down Ramiro Funes Mori to end a promising run from the Everton new-boy.

  11. Post update

    Everton 3-1 Chelsea

    Jimmy Armfield

    BBC Radio 5 live at Goodison Park

    "Chelsea had all the momentum since the beginning of the second half but the point is basically this: the end product is not there. 

    "And more than that, their defence, normally so reliable, is leaking goals. That is why they went for John Stones."

  12. INJURY TIME

    Everton 3-1 Chelsea

    There will be four minutes of stoppage time at Goodison Park before Chelsea's worst start to a top-flight season since 1986 is confirmed.

  13. Post update

    Everton 3-1 Chelsea

    Willian just pings a 40-yard pass straight out of play as he tries to find Eden Hazard. That sort of sums up the way things have gone in attack for Chelsea today. As for their defence... that's been even worse.

  15. YELLOW CARD

    Everton 3-1 Chelsea

    Another yellow card for Andre Marriner to dish out as Cesar Azpilicueta sends Aaron Lennon tumbling. No sign of a late Chelsea fightback - that third goal has finished them off.

  16. YELLOW CARD

    Everton 3-1 Chelsea

    John Stones has hardly put a foot wrong in the Everton defence today but he just blotted his copy-book slightly after being shown a yellow card for kicking the ball away as Chelsea try to take a quick free-kick. The home fans react with another chorus of "money can't buy you Stones."

  17. Post update

    Everton 3-1 Chelsea

    The Everton fans are chanting "Going down" at their Chelsea counterparts and "You're getting sacked in the morning" at Jose Mourinho. I don't think he can claim this defeat is another "fake result" either.

  18. Post update

    Everton 3-1 Chelsea

    Jimmy Armfield

    BBC Radio 5 live at Goodison Park

    "What a substitute eh? Everton's best move of the finish half, in fact their only real move of the second half, is finished by Steven Naismith.

    "Asmir Begovic was a bit too eager coming out towards the edge of his six-yard box, and Naismith, coming in on the angle, hits it home. Hat-trick. The second half has belonged to Chelsea but that should win Everton the points."

  19. GOAL - Everton 3-1 Chelsea

    Steven Naismith (82 min - Hat-trick)

    Amazing scenes, especially for Steven John Naismith. Ross Barkley is at the heart of things for this goal, driving at the Chelsea defence, but it is Naismith who finishes things off, picking up Barkley's precise pass, taking a touch and sliding the ball past Asmir Begovic to complete his hat-trick. Game over? It looks that way.

    Steven Naismith
  20. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    Chelsea are running into a line of Everton defenders every time they get near the edge of the Everton box. The visitors keep forcing corners - surely one of them will lead to something?

  21. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    Chelsea are about to take their 13th corner of the game, once Diego Costa gets the ball from the crowd that is. Willian hoists it into the box but Steven Naismith nods clear.

    "With these changes Jose Mourinho really is looking for Chelsea to stretch the game.

    "Radamel Falcao is up there, young Kenedy is out on the right hand side, Willian is back in too and all this should see Eden Hazard back into the thick of things as well. This is a really good watch now."

  24. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    This rash of changes continues. Seamus Coleman tweaked something a few moments ago so £9.5m new-boy Ramiro Funes Mori will replace him for the last few minutes. Everton are going to have to reshuffle at the back, though.

  25. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    There was a fair bit of pressure on John Stones today, given he was up against the team who tried to sign him, but he has been class personified in the Everton backline again and again. Cool, composed and rock solid. No wonder Jose Mourinho was so desperate to buy him.

    "Why didn't he shoot? Diego Costa has only got one to his name so far this season. It's the confidence factor (see 71 mins).

    "That was a big chance for Chelsea. Branislav Ivanovic did really well."

    Diego Costa
  29. SUBSTITUTION

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    Here comes that Everton change. Aaron Lennon is now a permanent Toffees player, rather than a loan one, and he is on for his first appearance in a blue shirt since his move from Tottenham.

  30. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    Radamel Falcao's first touch is a good one, finding Branislav Ivanovic with a delicious pass as Chelsea break quickly. He plays in Diego Costa on the left of the area but the Spaniard chooses to cut inside rather than let fly and runs into trouble. He is crowded out before he can get a shot away.

  31. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    Jimmy Armfield

    BBC Radio 5 live at Goodison Park

    "The home crowd are livening up a bit now. Romelu Lukaku is always a threat - his shot was saved by Asmir Begovic - yet another stop - but this is a good spell for Everton."

  32. SUBSTITUTION

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    Changes afoot for both teams. First for Chelsea - Radamel Falcao is coming on, replacing Pedro. 

  33. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    Everton want a free-kick when Branislav Ivanovic sends Steven Naismith tumbling but they have to settle for a corner. Chelsea clear but the home side keep the pressure on and Asmir Begovic is forced into action to keep out Romelu Lukaku's skidding low shot.

  34. YELLOW CARD

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    A crunching challenge by Brendan Galloway stops Pedro in his tracks but referee Andre Marriner lets play continue and the visitors' attack ends with Tim Howard charging off his line to punch a Diego Costa cross clear.

    Marriner books Galloway for that earlier foul - the first yellow card of the game - before the corner can be taken but a good spell of Chelsea pressure ends when Pedro fouls Steven Naismith.

  35. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    These are only half-chances for Everton but they are more than Chelsea can muster at the moment. We are more than an hour in and still just the one shot on target so far by Jose Mourinho's men.

  36. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    Another Everton half-chance. Romelu Lukaku seems keen to bag against his former club, letting fly from an impossible angle on the right of the area and finding the side rather than the back of the net.

    Romelu Lukaku
  37. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    Yep, Chelsea are less than convincing at the back at the moment - this time Romelu Lukaku charges through but sees his shot blocked by Asmir Begovic.

    The visitors get a bit lucky when John Terry taps the loose ball back into the hands of his keeper with Lukaku looking to gobble it up. That should be an indirect free-kick about 10 yards from goal but instead play continues.

  38. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    Everton have not done much attacking of late but they seem to fancy their chances against this Chelsea defence when they do come forward. Ross Barkley tries to wriggle his way through and evades a couple of challenges before running into the human roadblock that is Nemanja Matic. End of run.

  40. SUBSTITUTION

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    Chelsea have had 74% of possession in the second half but are yet to pose a serious threat. Time for an attacking change by Jose Mourinho - Kenedy on for John Obi-Mikel.

  41. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    Kurt Zouma is back on his feet and able to carry on. To be perfectly honest he could take a breather now because he has not had much defending to do since the break.

    Kurt Zouma and Romelu Lukaku
  42. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    Another potential problem for Chelsea. Kurt Zouma has been hurt in a challenge with Gareth Barry and is down on the floor in some pain.

  43. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    Chelsea have just forced their 10th corner. They may as well have had 100 for all the threat they have posed from them - this time Phil Jagielka heads clear for the home side.

  44. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    Everton, in contrast, are getting the ball forward quickly and practically operating on the break. That suits Romelu Lukaku down to the ground and his presence almost forces a mistake from Kurt Zouma who just about gets enough on his back-pass to Asmir Begovic, who comes sliding out of his area to kick clear with the big Belgian lurking.

    Asmir Begovic
  45. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    Jimmy Armfield

    BBC Radio 5 live at Goodison Park

    "This is a bit of a test now for Everton. I thought they started to look a bit weak, particularly down the right-hand side, towards the end of the first half.

    "And had they been able to score more from that period in the first half when they could have had four, they would have been out of sight. One moment, from Nemanja Matic, changed it."

  46. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    More of the same from Chelsea in the early stages of this second half. Lots of possession, some nice passes... but no penetration or end product.

  47. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    If Chelsea don't recover to pick up a point today, it will be their worst start to a season since 1986.

  48. KICK-OFF

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    Right, time to see what the champions have got in their locker. Chelsea get the second half under way as the sun breaks through the clouds on Merseyside.

  49. "Stones does not panic"

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    Jimmy Armfield

    BBC Radio 5 live at Goodison Park

    "John Stones does look mature for his age. When the ball is around him he’s very composed for someone so young. He doesn't panic, he tries to play the ball out and his positional play is very good.

    "And I tell you what, he's added to himself from this first-half performance."

  50. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    This graphic is for the first 45 minutes and sums it up quite nicely... Chelsea have had more possession, and more of the ball in and around the Everton area, but have not done much with it. They needed that Nemanja Matic wonder-goal to get back into the game.

    Everton v Chelsea
  51. Naismith - nearly joined Norwich

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    Also worth pointing out that Norwich tried to sign Steven Naismith on transfer deadline day, slapping in an £8m bid for a player who has still not started a league game for the Toffees this season.

    So John Stones is not the only player that Everton fans should be pleased they kept hold of... looks like money can't buy you Naismith either.

  52. Naismith - scorer and creator

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea.

    Just watching some replays of Steven Naismith's first goal. Worth pointing out he helped make it, with a neat turn, run and lay-off to Brendan Galloway on the edge of the box, before sprinting into the area to get on the end of Galloway's too.

    "We had plenty of goals when these teams met last year and frankly Everton should have had four after the first 25 minutes today. 

    "Chelsea have come back strongly though and Jose Mourinho will be thinking his team are right back in it. Everton had to see that first half out."

  55. HALF-TIME

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    The half ends with Everton on the attack though. They work an opening for Steven Naismith after a neat turn by Romelu Lukaku. Branislav Ivanovic gets back to hold him up but Naismith still manages to send in a cross that is met by Seamus Coleman but does not test Asmir Begovic.

  56. INJURY TIME

    Hmmm, I have to say this graphic of Nemanja Matic does not really do his strike justice... but at least you can see where his shot flew in from. Just imagine it breaking the net, and that should help give you a sense of how much power he had behind it.

    Nemanja Matic goal
  60. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    A succession of corners, actually. Everton survive, though, when the ball is driven goalwards and Branislav Ivanovic sticks out a leg but sees the ball bounce wide.

  61. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    Diego Costa has a pop at exactly that but John Stones is in the right place to block his shot. Chelsea have to settle for a corner.

    Diego Costa
  62. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    That is Nemanja Matic's first Premier League goal since he scored in Chelsea's 6-3 win at Everton in August 2014. I think he likes playing the Toffees, don't you?

    Anyway, back on the pitch and Chelsea are still doing all of the attacking. Everton holding firm at the moment, so it might take another wonder goal to force an equaliser.

  63. Post update

    Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    We have got a game on our hands now. Chelsea have got their tails up and force a succession of corners after Eden Hazard sees his effort deflected wide. 

    They take the last corner short but eventually get a cross in, which John Terry flings himself at and sees his header zip just over.

  64. Post update

     "The crowd have been silenced.  

    "Nobody closed Nemanja Matic down - he had so much time and the Everton players seemed to be looking for him to make a pass. 

    "But he really thumped the ball and it absolutely flew in. Suddenly Chelsea are back in the game."

  65. GOAL - Everton 2-1 Chelsea

    Nemanja Matic (36 min)

    Hang on, let's not write Chelsea off just yet. They are back in this game after a goal that really was out of nothing. Nemanja Matic looked up, all of 30 yards out, and let fly with a brilliant swerving strike that soared past Tim Howard and into the corner of the net. A brilliant goal that gives the champions hope.

    Everton 2-0 Chelsea

    Look away now Chelsea fans. The defending champions could be 11 points behind leaders Manchester City if they lose at Goodison Park and City win at Crystal Palace later. It's early days but that's a big gap...

    Chelsea, meanwhile, continue to toil. They have had slightly more possession in the first half hour or so - 55% to 45% - but they are yet to do very much with it apart from win a couple of corners... here comes another one, which Arouna Kone heads clear.

    Just as I write that, Everton threaten via a cross - James McCarthy sends the ball in from the right but it is just too high for Steven Naismith, who was arriving at the back post.

    Everton 0-0 Chelsea

    Everton have had the only shot of the game so far, a wayward effort by Ross Barkley just before Muhamed Besic went off, but Chelsea continue to look more dangerous, especially when they cross the ball into the box from the right.

  88. SUBSTITUTION

    Everton 0-0 Chelsea

    Muhamed Besic is down again and he cannot continue - Steven Naismith is coming on instead. Besic trudges off, looking every bit as unhappy as you would be if your first Premier League appearance of the season was over after eight minutes.

    Everton 0-0 Chelsea

    Nice footwork by Cesc Fabregas in his own half, and a nifty nutmeg too, but his attempt to release Eden Hazard down the left sees the ball fly straight through to Tim Howard. That first assist of the season is going to have to wait.

    Everton 0-0 Chelsea

    Chelsea have a spell of possession inside the Everton half this time, but the home side are holding firm on the edge of their own area and they also have 11 players again because Muhamed Besic is back on the pitch.

    "John Stones has got a bit of weight on his shoulder today because of the opposition and he was out applauding the fans around the ground before kick-off. How the Everton supporters react to him will play a key role in determining his future."

    Besic is beating his leg in frustration behind the goal as Everton take the corner short. When the cross eventually comes in, Asmir Begovic is fouled by Romelu Lukaku. The Toffees are still down to 10 men.

    A problem for Everton. Muhamed Besic bursts forward and wins a corner from Kurt Zouma but was hurt in the challenge and is now receiving treatment.

    Everton 0-0 Chelsea

    Everton fans start singing "Money can't buy you Stones" as the Toffees defender makes his first contribution to the game, shrugging off Diego Costa on the edge of the area. Nicely done.

    Chelsea have seen almost all the ball so far but their first attack ends when Branislav Ivanovic swings in a cross that bounces into the arms of Tim Howard.

  97. "The old guard are back"

    Everton v Chelsea (12:45 BST)

    Jimmy Armfield

    BBC Radio 5 live at Goodison Park

    "It's the old guard back, for Chelsea. John Terry and Jon Obi Mikel. Jose Mourinho has gone defensive, shoring his side up. He's looking for a response today."

  98. Jose can still smile

    Everton v Chelsea (12:45 BST)

    Good to see that Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho can still manage a smile after the (largely) miserable month he has had since the start of the season. 

    Will he be grinning at the final whistle though?

  99. "It’s surprising how poor Chelsea have been defensively"

    Everton v Chelsea (12:45)

    Kevin Kilbane

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "It’s surprising how poor Chelsea have been defensively. All of a sudden teams are finding it easy to play through them. Jose Mourinho will be gutted at their start. 

    "One of two bits of tinkering is all it will take. It might be a hindrance with Thibaut Courtois being out but they still have the quality overall. Last year people were saying they weren’t the most glamorous side to watch but I loved to watch them – how they were so hard to break down defensively. I think they’ll be back to that soon."

  100. Another tennis score?

    Everton v Chelsea (12:45 BST)

    While I am reminding you of what happened last week, I might as well refresh your memory about what happened when these sides met last season, too...

    In short it was a thriller. I was lucky enough to be at Goodison Park to watch it, although I struggled to keep count for a while in the second half when the goals were flying in.

    It finished 3-6, with Diego Costa scoring two for Chelsea. 

    Cesc Fabregas made one of them for his fourth assist of the season in only his third game... but it seems a long time since he was in such rich creative form. This season, Fabregas has not managed any assists in five matches (including the Community Shield), which sort of sums up his entire year, let alone the last month.

  101. Premier League - back with a bang... hopefully

    Everton v Chelsea (12:45 BST)

    It's been ages since the last round of Premier League fixtures (a whole two weeks) so probably worth reminding you what Everton and Chelsea got up to last time out.

    Everton picked up a decent point on the road against Tottenham at White Hart Lane, but Jose Mourinho's 100th home league game as Chelsea boss saw him suffer only his second defeat, as surprise-package Crystal Palace claimed a shock win at Stamford Bridge.

  102. Here come the players...

    Everton v Chelsea (12:45 BST)

    The players emerge from the tunnel at Goodison Park. John Stones looks a bit nervous if you ask me...

  103. "John Stones can concentrate on his football"

    Everton v Chelsea (12:45 BST)

    Quote Message: John Stones can concentrate of his football. He's had a very positive experience. Any experience can be taken in a good way or bad way. It goes down to character and personality. The way he has handled it allowed him to mature and become a stronger personality. He's ready to have a fantastic season. Aaron Lennon hasn’t played so far this season, but looked sharp in training. No doubt he should take part. Ramiro Funes Mori has had less time to work with the group. They are both ready to give the squad a boost. Nothing has been said about Jose Mourinho [regarding the pursuit of Stones] that has been disrespectful. My worry about the transfer window is that it's open while action is under way. There is a respect between two football clubs. from Roberto Martinez Everton manager

    The lyrics on this scarf read:

    "Martinez says he's not for sale, and I was satisfied

    "Chelsea want those kind of things, that money just can't buy

    "I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me Stones!"

    Anybody bought one? Send us a selfie. The announcer at Goodison Park has just played The Beatles song in question too, so it is very much a running theme.

  105. Chelsea: all over the place

    Everton v Chelsea (12:45 BST)

    Mark Lawrenson

    Former Liverpool defender on Football Focus

    "What Chelsea player has performed better this season than they did last year? Or at the same level? None of them. 

    "Branislav Ivanovic has been all over the place, John Terry looks ropy, Nemanja Matic? Diego Costa? And generally they have been undercooked with their fitness, too."

  106. "The results have been missing"

    Everton v Chelsea (12:45 BST)

    Quote Message: The results have been missing from the Premier League performances. I am more happy with performances than the results. I had hesitations [bringing back John Terry]. I have three central defenders ready to play. It's hard to leave someone out who is working hard. John was working with me the last 15 days. Gary Cahill played 90 minutes last Tuesday against Switzerland and John didn't. Cahill will be back playing in the Champions League next Tuesday. I had one day to work with the squad. We need the result to be adapted to the performance. from Jose Mourinho Chelsea manager

  107. "Jose will be hurting inside"

    Everton v Chelsea (12:45 BST)

    Sam Allardyce

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "Jose Mourinho is good for the game. He’s a talented manager. Not playing professionally was a huge obstacle to overcome but he did it. He knows how to be a winner and deal with his players. 

    "He’ll be hurting inside. He’ll be so disappointed in himself at this start. His will to win is so strong. He knows he has to get it right quickly. You can’t be cheerful and happy all the time."

  108. MOTD commentator's view

    Everton v Chelsea (12:45 BST)

    Steve Bower

    BBC football commentator

    "How will Chelsea respond to their defeat by Crystal Palace? Jose Mourinho has had a fortnight to reflect and will demand and expect a reaction.

    "Chelsea need to rediscover their toughness and togetherness; the foundation on which last season's title success was built.

    "One of many sub-plots sees Diego Costa try to add to his solitary goal against John Stones, who Chelsea hoped would be his team-mate by now.

    "I watched Everton contain Manchester City for large periods at Goodison Park recently but struggle to create clear-cut opportunities. If they can do that here they could add to Chelsea's frustrations."

  109. "Stones is very level headed"

    Everton v Chelsea (12:45 BST)

    Kevin Kilbane

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "It's the way football is – you see these quirky games pop up. John Stones has handled it all well – the transfer request mightn’t have gone down well with Evertonians. 

    "But he’s very level headed and an excellent player. He wanted to play for a side challenging for the title. I was very pleased Everton managed to keep hold of him. It’s a big statement."

  110. What Chelsea missed out on...

    Everton v Chelsea (12:45 BST)

    Mark Lawrenson

    Former Liverpool defender on Football Focus

    "John Stones will cope with playing against Chelsea today. Obviously he wanted to go there, because he handed in a transfer request, but he will want to show them what they missed out on.

    "He is an outstanding footballer, he still makes mistakes but a as time goes on he will make fewer and fewer."

  111. Another plane protest... ?

    Everton v Chelsea (12:45 BST)

    A plane is circling Goodison Park, carrying a banner which reads 'your failures are your legacy'.

    I'm not sure who is behind it, or exactly who it is directed at. My guess is that it is another pop at Everton chairman Bill Kenwright and the Toffees board, but can any of you lot clear it up?

    The message is not quite as clear as the banner which read 'Kenwright & Co #time to go NSNO,' in the fly-by protest during Everton's win over Southampton last month.

  112. "Chelsea have a scalp on their head"

    Everton v Chelsea (12:45 BST)

    Trevor Sinclair

    Former England winger on Football Focus

    "Asmir Begovic in Chelsea's goal is not a problem for me at all. He has big shoes to fill in terms of  Thibaut Courtois, but Begovic is a great keeper. He's been given this opportunity and I'm sure he'll take it. 

    "Look at Chelsea's stats - after four games last season Cesc Fabregas had made six goals. He's created zero so far, and Chelsea need to get him further forward into the final third, because his skillset is first class. 

    "Chelsea have a scalp on their head as champions - everybody playing them wants to beat them, and I don't think Chelsea are dealing with that well at all."

  113. Get Involved

    Everton v Chelsea (12:45 BST)

    MarcusNasty:  Why does Jose persist with Mikel?...Give Loftus-Cheek a chance. So infuriating! Also would like to see Kenedy today.

    Cephas Ifeanyi:  Told friends that Mikel Obi will start today. He brings that solidity to the defence.  

     Joel Ejike Oblates:  Jose Mourinho is already under an intense pressure, if his team loses today at Goodison Park, ouch that gonna hurt more.

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "It was nice to see a couple of stand-offs for a change – we all thought Stones would go and I thought Berahino would. Stones was handled much better than Berahino. It’s a joy to wake up at whatever level and play football. When it all stops it’s one of the worst things that happens to  you in your life. You should be one of the happiest people in the world getting up to play football."

    Everton v Chelsea (12:45 BST)

    John Stones faces the team that tried to buy him last month as Everton make two changes from their last Premier League outing against Tottenham, with Brendan Galloway back in defence and Muhamed Besic returning in midfield. 

    Bryan Oviedo and the injured Tom Cleverley are the players making way, while two of the Toffees' new signings, Aaron Lennon and Ramiro Funes Mori, are on the bench.

    Everton: Howard, Coleman, Jagielka, Stones, Galloway, Barry, McCarthy, Besic, Barkley, Kone, Lukaku

  117. Lawro's prediction

    Everton v Chelsea (12:45 BST)

    Mark Lawrenson

    BBC football expert

    Speaking of predictions, here is Lawro with his take on today's clash at Goodison Park...

    Lawro says: "Everton have been hit-and-miss so far this season while Chelsea were surprisingly poor before the international break. Most of their stand-out stars from their title success have been below par.

    "I suspect Jose Mourinho's side will be much better this weekend - they will definitely be fitter, which is an area he felt they were short in."

    Lawro's score: Everton 0-2 Chelsea

    Lawro's Predictions v Ex-F1 driver Mark Webber

  118. Predict the result

    Predictor graphic

    Everton fans are third from bottom, Chelsea supporters are languishing in 14th place.

    It's not been a great start for followers of these two clubs when it comes to predicting the scores of top-flight matches so far this season, but there's plenty of time to change all that.

  119. New boys set for Everton bow

    Everton v Chelsea (12:45 BST)

    Things are hardly too rosy in Everton's garden either, with Tom Cleverley out for up to eight weeks because of ankle ligament damage.

    The natives at Goodison Park have been restless in the opening weeks of the season too, unhappy about the direction of the club under its current regime.

    At least John Stones is playing for them, not Chelsea, today though. And Toffees fans will also have some new signings to look out for at Goodison Park this afternoon - Aaron Lennon and Ramiro Funes Mori are both in their squad.

  120. Coming up on BBC TV

    Football Focus

    Here's your three-minute warning to join Football Focus for a preview of the weekend’s action on BBC One from 12:10 BST. Trevor Sinclair and Mark Lawrenson are on the sofa today.

    You can watch reaction as all the goals go in with Final Score, live on the Red Button from 14:30 and on BBC One from 16:00 (except for viewers in Scotland, who can watch Sportscene from the same time). 

    And of course later there’ll be Match of the Day – today it’s on at 22:50 on BBC One.

  121. Courtois out, Terry in?

    Everton v Chelsea (12:45 BST)

    Yes, not even the international break brought much joy for Jose Mourinho & Co, with goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois sidelined for three months by a knee injury suffered in training this week.

    "It is a big blow, it is not easy to have the best goalkeeper in the world injured," said the Chelsea boss.

    Still, looking on the bright side, Blues skipper John Terry is back in the team after his one-game suspension. Terry's first aim today is presumably to complete the 90 minutes without being taken off or sent off.

  122. The season starts here for Chelsea?

    Everton v Chelsea (12:45 BST)

    I think it's fair to say that August was NOT a good month for Chelsea. Will September be any better? Everton will be trying to help make it another miserable month for the champions...
