Everton take on Chelsea today in the opening weekend of the Premier League season and both sides will be looking to kickstart their campaign with a win.
The two clubs have been under significant pressure in the transfer window for different reasons.
While Frank Lampard’s side have invested in James Tarkowski and Dwight McNeil from Burnley, with wing-back Ruben Vinagre also arriving after a spell with Wolverhampton Wanderers.
However, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin out for six weeks, the Merseyside outfit will be desperate to bring in a striker in the remainder of the window.
