The betting tip is...
Chelsea to win the first half
The Toffees had a very below-average start to the league season and now they are facing the music. They are in the relegation zone and with every game, things look difficult for Everton.
The Toffees have shown an average possession of 40.75% with 14.5 shots out of which 4.81 shots are on target. Dominic Calvert-Lewin is the man to watch out he has 4 goals and 1 assist on his name. Abdoulaye Doucouré is another player who will be part of the discussion for the opposition as he also has 4 goals and 1 assist on his name.
Everton’s primary problem lies in their attack as they have played 64.71% of fixtures without scoring a single goal. Their defence, on the other hand, has helped the club to win 3 clean sheets.
Amadou Onana, Andre Gomes (both calf) and Dele Alli (groin) are out of action because of their respective injuries.
Predicted Lineup: Pickford, Young, Tarkowski, Branthwaite, Mykolenko, Harrison, Gueye, Garner, Doucoure, McNeil, Beto
The Blues are the talk of the town after their inconsistent performances in the Premier League. They have shown real heart in a few games but have failed to impress in some crucial fixtures.
With an average possession of 59.56%, Chelsea has an average of 14.63 shots out of which 5.31 shots were on target. Their forward Nicolas Jackson has recovered from his injury and will be part of the fixture. Jackson has 7 goals and a single assist on his name. Cole Palmer is another player to watch out who has 4 goals and 4 assists on his name.
The Blues are struggling with their defence as they have only 3 clean sheets considering the quality of the players. Chelsea is in desperate need of an away win and they need to sort things at the back before travelling to face Everton.
Wesley Fofana (knee), Carney Chukwuemeka (knee), Trevoh Chalobah (thigh), Ben Chilwell (thigh), Malo Gusto (tendon), Christopher Nkunku (knee) and Romeo Lavia (ankle) remain unfit for the away fixture.
Predicted Lineup: Sanchez; James, Disasi, Badiashile, Colwill; Fernandez, Caicedo; Sterling, Palmer, Mudryk; Jackson
Both teams have struggled when it comes to their defence. However, Chelsea has an advantage as they have a much better attack and will get the benefit of Everton’s weakness.
The last fixture between the two teams ended up as a draw but this time our experts predict that Chelsea will score a win.
