Coming into the Goodison Park clash, the hosts are on a three-match losing run including the midweek 5-2 defeat to Merseyside rivals Liverpool.
Chelsea meanwhile responded to back-to-back defeats with a 2-1 triumph over Aston Villa on Wednesday night and got their top four charge back on track.
Will Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham et al continue to make waves or will Silva earn a much-needed victory to extend his stay of execution?
