Everton's Under-21s are back in action on Monday afternoon as they aim to continue their unbeaten record in 2013.
After producing a rousing comeback to win 3-2 from 2-0 down against Blackburn last time out, the young Blues now face a trip to top of the table rivals Chelsea.
The London outfit could well emerge as Everton's main challengers to win Group 1 but currently trail Alan Stubbs' league leaders by four points.
The Toffees have won four and drawn one of their five games since Christmas, with Conor McAleny one of the men in form.
The striker has scored four times in his last five games, including the winner against Blackburn.
McAleny told evertontv: "The manager said that he wanted us to go unbeaten at Christmas and we have been since then. We just need to keep it going."
Monday's game kicks off at 2pm. Follow it live here on evertonfc.com or via Twitter.
