Chelsea vs Everton

Sunday November 11th, 14:15

Chelsea play host to Everton on Sunday afternoon in what promises to be an entertaining Premier League fixture at Stamford Bridge. Both sides enter the game on the back of a recent strong run of form.

Predictions

Each of these two sides go into this game in good form – Chelsea are unbeaten through 16 matches in all competitions (excluding their Community Shield defeat) while Everton have won four of their last five league games.

The hosts are undefeated across the Premier League, League Cup and Europa League under new boss Maurizio Sarri and have won six of their last seven matches in all competitions.

The Blues have a strong record at Stamford Bridge, although they needed a late stoppage time equaliser to avoid defeat at home to Manchester United.

Everton are also in a good run of form – they have taken 12 points from their last five league games and put in a creditable performance in their only defeat in that run – a 2-1 loss at Old Trafford.

Victories over Fulham, Leicester, Crystal Palace and Brighton have elevated them into the top half of the Premier League after a slow start to the campaign.

This is an important match for both teams, with the hosts, who currently sit second, looking to keep pace with Manchester City at the top of the standings and Everton hoping to continue the momentum.

However, home advantage and superior quality in their team means Chelsea are very likely to continue their unbeaten run, and probably take all three points.

It will be another test for the West London club but they should edge Everton out 2-1 in a closely fought encounter.

Betting Tips

This bet would have been a winner in four of Chelsea’s last five matches while for Everton, the number would be 10 in the last 13. Between them, these two have accumulated 46 goals in 22 league matches this season and neither are the sort to sit back and soak up pressure. The hosts have hit 18 goals in their last six games while Everton have netted 11 in five.

The Spanish striker netted in this fixture last season and already has five league goals to his name this campaign and appears to be full of confidence. This is reflected in the fact he has netted three times in his most recent three appearances and has the full trust of his new coach, which is paying dividends.

Statistics

Head to Head

The most recent meeting between these two sides ended in a goalless draw in February at Goodison Park, bringing an end to four straight Chelsea victories in this fixture.

Indeed, the Toffees have not managed a victory at Stamford Bridge since a penalty shootout win in February 2011, while their last victory in regulation time was in November 1994!

Stats

  • Chelsea have the second-best attack in the league (27 goals scored) behind only Manchester City and the third meanest defence (8 goals conceded) behind only City and Liverpool.
  • The hosts are the only English top-flight side not to have tasted defeat in any competition so far this season.
  • Only five teams have scored more goals than Everton this season, although seven have conceded fewer.
  • The Toffees have won just once on the road this season (2-1 at Leicester), accumulating just five points in their five outings.
