Everton v Chelsea: Premier League  live | Scott Murray

All the action from Goodison ParkSend your thoughts to scott.murray@theguardian.comClick here for the days other latest scores 4.30pm BST Its been a frustrating start to the season for Everton. A late equaliser conceded at Leicester City on the opening day was bad enough. But letting a two-goal lead slip at the end of an otherwise dominant performance against Arsenal at Goodison last weekend really hurt. Two points from two games is a distinctly average return, and yet the performances have nevertheless been impressive. Romelu Lukaku, Seamus Coleman and Aiden McGeady have all caught the eye,...

Their opponent will likely be without their marquee striker, Deigo Costa and will need to take advantage of this...

Everton Season Preview: Squad Weaknesses

Despite an excellent off-season from the Toffees, Roberto Martinez's squad is not perfect and may require further reinforcements before the season kicks off against Leicester City. The long awaited signing of Romelu Lukaku is officially in the books leaving Everton's first team largely set for the upcoming season.

Injuries ravaged the squad at the end of last season and Roberto Martinez will need to have a back-up plan if any of the starters go down...

Did Everton overpay for Romelu Lukaku?

We've seen two narratives emerge from Romelu Lukaku's arrival at Everton. On one side, most Evertonians are ecstatic to get such a young talent at such a young price. If you go ask Chelsea supporters, some can't believe they let Lukaku go for so cheap and others think that the club managed to fleece Everton. But which side is right? Transfer prices are padi based on the hope of future production, but they are largely based on past services. It is a magical science that no one can quite explain. Honestly it wouldn't shock me if managers just had a dart board in their office with transfer...
