Everton vs Chelsea Preview, Predictions & Live Info

Everton vs Chelsea
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, December 12, 2020
Start at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Location: Goodison Park (Liverpool).

It is very unfortunate for Everton that after such a good start to the league campaign, they are now rapidly falling through the table and have lost 3 of their last five games.

Carlo Ancelotti's team comes into this match in ninth position with 17 points and is five points behind Chelsea. Last weekend Everton drew 1-1 at Burnley, but with just 4 points taken from the last 15 available, the club is not in good shape.

To add to the misery, their form at home is also not good and they are winless in their last 3 matches. Everton's last home win came against Brighton in early October and their last home game ended in a 1-0 loss to Leeds United.

Chelsea have seen themselves as one of the strongest teams in the league in the last four weeks and are in third place with 22 points and only 2 points off the top. Because Tottenham and Liverpool play on Sunday, it means that a win would put the Blues in first place.

Frank Lampard's team have accumulated 13 points from their last 15 and have only lost once this season and it was against Liverpool, three months ago.

Everton vs Chelsea head to head

  • Last season Everton beat Chelsea 3-1 in this match.
  • Chelsea haven't won at Everton since 2017.
  • There is a 60% chance of seeing more than 2.5 goals.

Everton vs Chelsea prediction

Chelsea have the best team and should start as favorites, however there are a couple of things against them. They had to play the Champions League in the middle of the week, although they were at home in a dead rubber match, so some regulars were able to rest.

The other is being out and Chelsea don't have a fantastic record at Everton.

Everton are a good team but they have lacked a spark for several weeks now and this is the game that could be a turning point if most of the top teams win again.

We are backing the visitors to win, they are full of confidence and full of goals and it is difficult to see this Everton defense keeping a clean sheet against the quality Chelsea have in their ranks.
