Premier League: five essential picks for your fantasy squad

Follow live coverage as Everton hosts Chelsea during the opening weekend of the 2022/23 Premier League season.

The Toffees narrowly avoided the drop from a year ago and will certainly be desperate to kick-start the new campaign to the fore this time to quell any talk of similar concerns. Thomas Tuchel’s Blues had a more positive season overall, although two defeats to Liverpool in the Carabao and FA Cup finals left them without a budget.

The new squad of former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is shocked by the news that Dominic Calvert-Lewin will miss about “six weeks” due to a knee injury sustained in training. With Solomon Rondon also out due to a suspension from last season, it means Demarai Gray will take the lead. Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly make their debuts for the visitors, while Marc Cucurella also signed in time for the squad, although Tuchel has only named him on the bench when Ben Chilwell fills in on the left wing.

Follow the latest updates from Goodison Park:

17 min: Ben Godfrey is taken off the pitch on a stretcher and has gone straight into the ambulance to the side of the pitch. It was an eight minute break in the game while Godfrey was being treated.

Holgate replaces the defender and immediately handles a corner from Reece James.

14 mins: Ben Godfrey is still on the ground being treated by Everton’s medical team. It looks like he’s gone over his ankle and is feeling a little uncomfortable to say the least.

Everton 0-0 Chelsea

12 mins: Pickford and Havertz both seem fine, but Godfrey stayed. It doesn’t look like the right-back will continue and Mason Holgate is hastily prepared on the sidelines.

9 mins: The question mark with this Everton team is where do the goals come from? Dwight McNeil was a decent wide player for Burnley, but he’s making his debut.

Demarai Gray and Anthony Gordon are good players, but not the most clinical for goal. Dominic Calvert-Lewin is a big miss.

Kai Havertz appears to drive into the penalty area from the left byline, but is tackled by Ben Godfrey as Jordan Pickford closes in on him as well. All three players collide with each other and Godfrey comes off worse with wear and tear.

6 mins: Sterling shifts the ball inside James Tarkowski, pulling Everton’s new central defender into a foul on the right wing.

Reece James swings the set piece in the center of the box and focuses on Kai Havertz. Abdoulaye Doucoure rises above the striker and heads the ball safely down before Jordan Pickford grabs the ball to end the attack.

3 mins: Raheem Sterling moves to the right side to make contact with Reece James who plays the ball in to N’Golo Kante. Kante attempts a first pass back to Sterling, but sends it next to the attacker and out of the game.

Sterling, however, slaps him for the idea, while Chelsea hope to move the ball quickly through midfield and work around the Everton players.

Chelsea gets the ball rolling at Goodison Park. It is a Blues debut by Raheem Sterling and Kalidu Koulibaly. They have some big shoes to fill, especially the centre-back, but can they help Thomas Tuchel’s men fight for the title this year?
