Is Everton vs Chelsea on TV tonight? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Premier League fixture


The Premier League’s top scorer will be hoping to shoot down the team looking to go back to the top of the table on Saturday night.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin will lead the line for Everton as they look to end a miserable sequence of results, the latest of which was a draw at lowly Burnley where the England striker notched his 11th of the league campaign.

They face third-place Chelsea, who will leapfrog Liverpool and Tottenham back to the top if they take three points.
