Chelsea vs Everton: Predictions, Betting Tips & Odds
The battle of the Blues heads to Stamford Bridge as unbeaten Chelsea welcome an Everton side who have enjoyed something a resurgence of late.
Chelsea once again put their unbeaten record on the line with the visit of the Toffees but there is little to suggest Maurizio Sarri’s men will not be primed to make it nine wins for the season.
That is because only Manchester City have managed more points on home soil than Sarri’s men this season whilst Everton’s away form has been disappointing with just one win and two defeats from their five trips away from Goodison Park.
The Toffees’ Premier League record at Stamford Bridge also leaves a little to be desired, having not won a League game at the Blues since 1994 (however, Everton did win a 2011 FA Cup tie at Stamford Bridge) and the suggestion is that is unlikely to change this weekend.
Chelsea have scored at least three goals a game in their last four matches and considering the Toffees have conceded at least twice in all three of their defeats this season, an impressive 3-1 victory for the home side looks the best prediction for this game.
- Chelsea to win with a two-goal margin
Three of Chelsea’s last four Premier League wins over Everton have been won with a minimum of a two-goal margin.
Also, Chelsea have scored a minimum of two goals in a game for their last six outings in all competitions.
- Both teams to score
Goals have not been a problem for the Blues of late and neither has it for the Toffees.
Everton have scored in their last six games in all competitions and have only failed to score in one of all their games this season.
