Chelsea travel to Goodison Park on Saturday to face Everton with Frank Lampard’s men aiming to extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League to 10 matches.
Indeed, Carlo Ancelotti’s charges have just one win in their last seven games and have failed to keep a clean sheet since the opening day of the season.
The visitors are clear favourites on Saturday evening, with bet365 offering an away win at 3/4 (1.75).
Chelsea won the most recent meeting between the sides 4-0 in March, but the last clash at Goodison Park saw Everton record a 3-1 successand another win for the Toffees is priced at 10/3 (4.33).
The draw can be backed at 3/1 (4.00).
The hosts are without injured trio Fabian Delph, Lucas Digne and Jean-Philipe Gbamin, while Seamus Coleman and Robin Olsen are being assessed.
Chelseaare missing Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi, who are both unavailable due to injury.
Whilst Carlo Ancelotti’s men have had few problems going forward, the defensive form of his side will surely be of concernwith the Toffees conceding 18 goals in 11 games.
The majority of those goals have come at Goodison Park where Everton have shipped 10 times in just five fixtures, and that run could well continue this weekend.
Chelsea are the second-top scorers in the division with an incredible 25 strikes to their name, and have managed at two or more goals in eight of their 11 Premier League matches this term.
With four wins and a draw in their last five games, the Blues are in good form and should be backed to claim a win against an out-of-sorts Everton team.
Chelsea to win and score over 1.5 goals is priced at 11/10 (2.10) and looks like an appealing option given the Blues’ strong form and their opponents’ defensive issues.
This bet has paid out in four of Chelsea’s last five Premier League games and a repeat could well be on the cards this weekend.
Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble repsonsibly.
