On a thrilling Sunday of football action in the Premier League, we see Chelsea host Everton at Stamford Bridge, kicking off at 2:15pm local time. Chelsea remain undefeated in all competitions this season, and remain two points off the top spot. Everton are a team that has continuously failed to take points off the top 6 teams away from home, but can they surprise many viewers this Sunday by grabbing an improbable result?

Home Team: Chelsea

chelsea fc bet on footballChelsea are starting to squash this myth that European football matches can derail a season, as they are managing to cope excellently with the stresses of Europa League on Thursday nights, and still being prolific in the Premier League. Eight wins and three draws from their opening 11 matches keeps them in 2nd spot, just two points behind Manchester City. Chelsea will play before Manchester City this weekend, so can temporarily put themselves top of the table, for a few hours at least. Alvaro Morata has started to merit his starting position ahead of Olivier Giroud with a three goals from his last two Premier League matches. In their most recent fixture in the Premier League, Chelsea had to overcome a stubborn Crystal Palace side to win 3-1, but Chelsea have been clinical this season, and many will expect their run to continue.

Away Team: Everton

everton betting on footballEverton are coasting in mid-table at the moment, and are struggling to put together a streak of wins. Everton have always been capable of beating sides lower than then in the table, but for many years now have struggled to get valuable points away at the top six. Everton had recently lost to Arsenal and Manchester United away, when being in the game for large parts of the match – but on both times, came away from the stadium with 0 points. Everton haven’t been able to get many points at Stamford Bridge across the years but will hope that their fortunes can change in this big matches, as the club are hoping to get in closer distance to the top 6. Many consider Everton as the 7th best club in the league, and it will be no surprise if that is where they finish come the end of the season. Can they bridge that extra gap though?

Head to Head

Everton fans have extra to be concerned about this match looking at history of this fixture. Overall, Chelsea have won 72 times compared to Everton’s 54 victories. In recent times, Everton have managed to win 5 times out of the last 15 meetings, but all have come at Goodison Park. At Stamford Bridge, Everton have only picked up just 5 points from the last possible 45, winning 0 times. Everton haven’t won at Stamford Bridge since 1994, in any competition. In the corresponding fixture last season, Chelsea won 2-0 after two early first half goals, and it was a start of the horrid record for Everton which ultimately got their manager Ronaldo Koeman sacked.

Predictions and Betting Tips

Chelsea are understandably strong favourites at 2/5 to get the three points, with Everton ranked outsiders at 13/2. For the two teams to share the spoils, you can bet on that at 19/5. After not winning at Stamford Bridge for 24 years, you expect better odds for an away win, but unfortunately that’s not the case. I’d have to opt for a home win here, and would go for a 3-1 score line at 10/1. Both sides won’t sit in, and hope to cause their opposition some problems, so we should see goals. I wouldn’t put it past Everton to start this match stronger, and perhaps even take the lead before Chelsea start to overpower them. Therefore, do consider betting on Chelsea to win from behind, which is a generous 8/1.
