Chelsea vs Everton – Chelsea will be looking for a repeat of their previous performance after defeating Leicester City 1-3 in the Premier League. Chelsea had a 51% control advantage and made 12 attempts on goal, scoring three of them.
For Chelsea, the goals were Ben Chilwell (11′), Kai Havertz (45′) and Mateo Kovačić (78′). Leicester City’s opponents had 17 shots on goal, with 0ne going in. For Leicester City, a goal was made by Patson Daka (39′).
The high percentage of scores with a nil in them is an intriguing characteristic of recent Chelsea encounters. A wager on BTTS would have lost in as many as 5 of their previous 6 games prior to this one.
Putting that aside, we’ll just have to wait to see if this pattern continues in the next game. Everton enters the contest fresh off a 1-0 victory over Brentford in the Premier League.
Everton had 33% of the possession in that game and made 13 efforts on goal, scoring on six of them. Dwight McNeil was the lone scorer for Everton (1′). Brentford made 12 efforts on goal for their rivals, scoring on 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. For the previous nine league games, they have failed to win on the road. What a dismal string of road performances.

With Jordan Pickford, Seamus Coleman, Michael Keane, James Tarkowski, Benjamin Godfrey, Alex Iwobi, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Idrissa Gueye, Amadou Onana, Dwight McNeil, and Demarai Gray, the Toffees may opt to choose a 4-5-1 formation.
