CHELSEA kicks off its Premier League season against Frank Lampard’s Everton.
When the teams last met at Goodison Park in May, the Toffees defeated Chelsea, and under Lampard’s leadership, they were able to avoid relegation.
The Blues, however, will return with a vengeance and will be joined by recent additions Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, and Marc Cucurella.
