Everton face Chelsea in a mouthwatering Saturday night Premier League fixture on Matchweek 12. 

The hosts started the season on fire but have stuttered in recent times, winning just one of their last seven matches in the top-flight.

As for Chelsea, after two wins from their first six, the Blues have won four of their last five and are unbeaten in 14 matches in all competitions.

However, Frank Lampard knows that his side face a tricky test at Goodison Park against old boss Carlo Ancelotti in what is the first of five Premier League matches in 20 days for both sides.

The Toffees made a string of impressive signings in the summer with the likes of James Rodriguez and Allan arriving.

Despite that, it’s been one of their own in striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin who’s been their star man to date this term.

Calvert-Lewin is the country’s form striker.

The 23-year-old has struck 16 times in 18 matches for club and country in all competitions, leading the Premier League scoring charts on 11 goals.

Calvert-Lewin’s latest goal came in the 1-1 draw at Burnley last time out and he will now be aiming to notch his fourth against Chelsea having already scored three times in five appearances against the London club.

In the visitor’s ranks, Chelsea have a goal machine of their own in German international Timo Werner.

The 24-year-old, who arrived from RB Leipzig, has continued the form which saw him net 95 times in 159 matches for the Bundesliga side.

Werner is impressing in a Chelsea shirt.

Although the rapid forward been deployed as a wide and central striker (he’s expected to start on the flank against Everton), Werner has scored eight goals for his new club so far.

However, Lampard will want his striker to end a goal drought which has seen him fail to hit the back of the net in his last six matches.

Despite a lack of goals recently for Werner, there’s no question he and the in-form Calvert-Lewin are the potential match winners for each team.

But which goal-getting international striker will come out on top at Goodison Park?

Here’s how the two forwards have performed in the 2020/21 Premier League season so far…
