Our tipster is anticipating plenty of goals – and scoring at both ends – when Marco Silva’s side travel to take on Maurizio Sarri’s Blues on Sunday
Chelsea can stretch their unbeaten run under Maurizio Sarri’s stewardship to 18 matches against Everton at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
The Blues sit in second place in the Premier League table ahead of the weekend’s fixtures and will be aiming to maintain their superb start to the season when they face Marco Silva’s side.
Chelsea are chalked up as a 4/11 (1.37) chance with bet365 while the same firm go 15/4 (4.75) that both sides settle for a share of the spoils – the most recent match between these teams ended in a drab goalless draw at Goodison Park last season.
Almost 24 years have passed since Everton won a Premier League match at Stamford Bridge and bet365 go 15/2 (8.50) that Silva’s side put that particular statistic to bed in west London.
Sarri made a raft of changes for Thursday’s Europa League tie against BATE Borisov in Belarus and the same can be expected ahead of Sunday’s showdown, with a host of first-team regulars all pushing for an immediate recall.
James McCarthy is a long-term absentee for the Toffees, who are otherwise at full-strength.
The Toffees have managed just one goal in their last five fixtures against Chelsea and Sarri’s side are available at 5/4 (2.25) with bet365 to shut out the Toffees on Sunday.
The same firm go 6/4 (2.50) that Chelsea win to nil – that play would have landed in four of Chelsea’s last five wins against Everton.
Everton, though, are in fine form in front of goal. Indeed, the Toffees have found the target in 12 of their 13 competitive matches so far this season, with Richarlison scoring six goals in nine league matches thus far.
Chelsea, meanwhile, have netted in every single home match dating back to January – a span of 18 matches in all competitions.
The even money (2.0) quote, then, for at least three goals to be scored – and for both teams to find the net – could offer decent value for punters ahead of Sunday’s showdown in west London.
