Romelu Lukaku Is Really Good Player - Chelsea Boss Antonio Conte

Fans who know they are going to miss the opening minutes of the match need not worry, as it will be unlikely they will have missed very much.

Ross Barkley is another player with match-winning ability, but the midfielder can be equally frustrating when he doesn't deliver on his huge potential.

The Belgium global leads the goalscoring chart of the Premier League with 24 goals, while Costa has 19.

"They have a good manager and play exciting football".

Costa has already faced heavy criticism, despite being his side's top goal scorer this season after enduring the worst goal drought of his Chelsea career.

His form has nosedived since Chelsea rejected a lucrative bid from Chinese Super League club Tianjin Quanjian to sign him in January and temporarily dropped him from the starting XI following a training ground row with a fitness coach and Conte. "It was maybe one of the strongest performances of Chelsea and Everton were poor in all aspects of football".

Belgium playmaker Hazard has hit 15 Premier League goals this term to drag Chelsea to the brink of the title.

"We must praise Tottenham because they are playing very well and are having a great seson like Chelsea". He was excellent during the first half of the season and showed why Conte was keen to keep him last summer.

Everton will look to secure a ninth straight Premier League home win against title hopefuls Chelsea on Sunday.

Everton pose the biggest threat to the west Londoners in the run-in, and Conte is preparing his players for a tough test on Merseyside.

"We are talking about two great strikers, but Diego for me is the best striker in the world". They have good quality, they are a physical team also.

Both City and fifth-placed Manchester United are also in action on Sunday and would hope to both pick up three points as they play two relegation candidates in Middlesbrough and Swansea respectively.

"I think that it's impossible for me to take this responsibility [guarantee that Hazard will stay], not only for Eden but for every single player". Antonio Conte will learn a lot about those in the squad, especially whether they have the strong mentality required to win titles at the highest level.

Enner Valencia is available for Everton after the striker was ineligible to face parent club West Ham last week.

Muhamed Besic is still short of fitness after a year out with a serious knee injury so he remains on the sidelines along with James McCarthy, Ramiro Funes Mori, Yannick Bolasie, Season Coleman and Aaron Lennon.
