Chelsea will want to put Everton to the sword this weekend when the Toffees visit Stamford Bridge. With log leaders Man United playing away at Anfield, a 3 point haul could put Chelsea on level points with the Red Devils.
Everton has had Chelsea’s number over recent seasons, with the Blues struggling to put away the Merseysiders. Everton has won three of its last ten encounters against Chelsea, with two wins going to Chelsea and the remaining five matches ending in draws.
Chelsea has achieved just one home win against Everton during this period, while Everton has beaten Chelsea at Stamford Bridge once. The last meeting between the sides at the Bridge produced a victory for Everton in the FA Cup.
Chelsea comes into this fixture on the back of three wins, a draw and a loss in the Premier League. Two of these wins were big victories in the Premiership, where Chelsea has scored 9 goals in just two matches.
Chelsea’s overall striking record in all competition is less impressive, with 11 goals scored in the club’s last five matches. Besides a 3-1 loss to Manchester United, defence has been solid enough, with 3 goals conceded in the remaining four matches.
Everton has two losses, two wins and a draw to show for its last five outings. The club had been cruising for five games without conceding defeat before falling to Manchester City and Liverpool on consecutive weekends.
Everton has struggled on defence, with 8 goals conceded in five matches. The attack is putting in some workmanlike performances, with 7 goals scored in the same period of time.
Chelsea will have to overcome its Everton hoodoo to take full points from this fixture. History tells us that a draw is likely, however, the Blues can ill afford to finish the day with a single point on Saturday.
We expect Chelsea to put in a big performance in this match, and its strong attacking form combined with Everton’s iffy defence should be enough to secure a win for the home team.
Our Chelsea vs Everton betting tip is therefore to go with a back bet on the home side at the best odds you can find.
