Diego Costa has confounded gloomy pre-match expectations to start for Chelsea in their Premier League clash with Everton.
Former Atletico Madrid striker Costa - who joined the Blues in a £32 million deal earlier this summer - sustained a muscular injury during a training session during the week, with some fearing that the Spain international could be missing for up to six weeks of the season.
Two changes for Mourinho
Such concerns have proved to be unfounded, however, with Costa retaining his place in Jose Mourinho's starting XI for a potentially tricky trip to Goodison Park.
Chelsea show two changes from last weekend's comfortable win over newly-promoted Leicester City, with Brazilian duo Willian and Ramires in for compatriot Oscar and World Cup winner Andre Schurrle.
Lukaku starts; Eto'o a sub
For Everton, Romelu Lukaku has been selected to start against his former club, while fellow former Chelsea striker Samuel Eto'o - who signed for the Toffees on a two-year deal on Tuesday - is deemed fit enough for a place on the substitutes bench.
Roberto Martinez makes one alteration to the side who drew 2-2 with Arsenal on this ground last Saturday, with Republic of Ireland international Aiden McGeady replacing Steven Pienaar.
The South African picked up a groin injury early on during that aforementioned tie with the Gunners.
Christian Atsu is not on the bench for Everton this evening due to the fact that he is currently on loan from Chelsea.
