Frank Lampard led the Everton side to beat Chelsea 1-0 towards the end of last season.
Backed by a noisy Goodison Park crowd, the Toffees gave it their all as they fought to stay in the Premier League.
Chelsea got only one point from two games against Everton last season, drawing 1-1 at home and losing 1-0 away.
For Thomas Tuchel, inasmuch as he respects the Chelsea legend, he has vowed to take the three points this time around.
“We played very late last season in Everton, we lost. We remember very well,” Thomas Tuchel said at a press conference ahead of the Toffees game.
“We need nothing more to know what is coming. Fantastic atmosphere, very emotional crowd, very emotional team. Of course we know some familiar faces on the other side of the bench. The bench is not so far away in Everton.
“And still, we have nothing but respect for Frank [Lampard] and his staff. A lot of people with Chelsea history, it was very respectful between the two benches and it will be but at the same time will be very competitive.
“Was a very late game in the season and we lost it and absolutely do not like to lose. We even dislike it more to lose twice, so we know what is coming and we will be ready.”
