Chelsea vs Everton – Chelsea will be looking for a repeat of their previous performance when they defeated Leicester City 3-1 at King Power Stadium in the Premier League. Chelsea had a 51 per cent control advantage and made 12 attempts on goal, netting three of them.
For Chelsea, the goals were scored by Ben Chilwell (11′), Kai Havertz (45′), and Mateo Kovačić (78′). Leicester City had 17 shots on goal, with one going in. Patson Daka (39′) scored the goal for Leicester City.
The high percentage of scores with nil in them is an intriguing characteristic of recent Chelsea encounters. A wager on BTTS would have lost in as many as five of their previous six games prior to this one.

Putting that aside, we’ll just have to wait to see if this pattern continues in this game. Everton are coming into the game after beating Brentford 1-0 in the Premier League.
Everton had 33% of the possession in that game and made 13 attempts on goal, getting six of them on target. Dwight McNeil was the lone scorer for Everton (1′). Brentford made 12 efforts on goal against their rivals, getting four of them.
It is now evident that Everton have only scored four goals in their last six games, which is a depressing result. The Toffees have also seen their opponents score a total of 10 goals against them in those games.
Everton has not defeated Chelsea in an away league encounter for the previous 27 games, according to their previous form.
Imagine how happy they must be to finally achieve an away victory. In their previous nine league games, they failed to win on the road. What a dismal string of road performances!

We anticipate the Blues to play Kepa Arrizabalaga, Wesley Fofana, Kalidou Koulibaly, Marc Cucurella, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Mateo Kovacic, Enzo Fernández, Benjamin Chilwell, Joo Félix, Kai Havertz, and Mykhaylo Mudryk in a 3-4-3 formation this time.
Sean Dyche, the manager of Everton, will contend with a variety of availability issues. Andy Lonergan (knee issues) and Andros Townsend (cruciate ligament injury) won’t be participating in this contest.
The Toffees could play in a 4-5-1 formation with Jordan Pickford, Seamus Coleman, Michael Keane, James Tarkowski, Benjamin Godfrey, Alex Iwobi, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Idrissa Gueye, Amadou Onana, Dwight McNeil, and Demarai Gray.
When Chelsea plays Everton, who may find it difficult to score, they appear to be creating enough opportunities to score more than one goal.
