Chelsea Confirmed Lineup vs Everton: Drinkwater makes Blues debut, Batshuayi up front

Conte has made it clear he is not a man who will simply accept his fate

The Stamford Bridge giants have opened the scoring in their last three outings with the Merseyside outfit and will be looking to repeat the same here at (1.38).

Unlike the first few months of the season, Everton were lined up in a way that made sense. A win here could help Everton get their confidence back - but that seems like a very tall order for them right now, especially considering how easily Chelsea beat them in the EPL earlier this season. The lads flew into their tackles, and in the second half deserved more than the one goal they got. Idrissa Gueye is suspended for the game, after picking up two yellow cards against Arsenal this past weekend.

The one Chelsea player who didn't allow his performance to drop in the second period, Willian produced a moment of sheer class to steer his side into the hat for the last eight. While the kid doesn't (yet) have Morgan Schneiderlin's range of passing, it looks like Beni is already the best backup in the team for the Frenchman, and likely better than both Muhamed Besic and James McCarthy already.

Everton hit straight back through Calvert-Lewin, who pounced to convert a loose ball after a strong run from Oumar Niasse.

Everton were the dominant side in the second half, forcing the champions to hang on and hold onto their advantage.

'It is always hard when you come into a team that isn't playing well.

Phil Jagielka deserves a medal.

Michy Batshuayi had a shot blocked and Willian fired an effort into the side netting after a swift break. Jags carried the corpse of Ashley Williams around the field all night long. However, the loss shouldn't be considered a setback, but an encouragement. Caretaker boss Unsworth will hope his appointment can lead to a "bounce effect" which seems to happen when a new face comes in, and that's surely something Conte will be aware of, in a fixture that could see rotation play a big part in the outcome of this fourth round tie.

After Monday's dismissal of manager Ronald Koeman, the former Everton player has been put in charge of first team affairs, which sees him promoted once again from his current role of U23 manager.
