Competition: Premier League
Market: Chelsea to win against Everton
Odds: 1/1 @ Bet 365
Everton welcome the visit of Premier League champions Chelsea this weekend at Goodison Park, and may well feel they stand a chance of getting a result given how inconsistent the Londoners have been. And with Roberto Martinez having performed admirably in contrast, there’s every reason to believe the Toffees stand a chance of coming away with something for their troubles.
The Merseysiders have enjoyed a decent start to the new Premier League season, beating Southampton at St Mary’s, while picking up points against Watford and Tottenham Hotspur. Everton are currently ninth in the table after four games, which is a complete turnaround from the previous campaign. Their only defeat came against league leaders Manchester City, so Everton should be pleased with how their season is currently going.
As for Chelsea, things are far from rosy. Jose Mourinho’s men are below Everton in the table, and have one point less than the hosts. The Londoners have dropped points against Swansea City, Manchester City and Crystal Palace. Their only win came against West Bromwich Albion, and they were taken the distance by Tony Pulis’ men, playing out a five-goal thriller at the Hawthorns.
Everton at home has been a bogey fixture for Chelsea for some time, with the Blues having won three of their last six meetings at Goodison. Given recent form, Chelsea will be very fearful of another defeat, and dropped points is something they can no longer afford as they’re losing too much ground on the sides above them in the table.
