Date: Monday, 8 March 2021

Venue: Stamford Bridge (London).
Chelsea has been unbeaten in their last seven PL clashes in the schedule. The Blues will have high morale after winning in the first leg of Champions League playoffs against Atletico Madrid recently. Besides, they have topped their unbeaten run with a goalless draw at home with Manchester United in the league.
Everton has won their last two fixtures in the campaign with a clean sheet in each. The away team is just a point behind the host on the table and will aim for the top five spots on the table. They will visit on the back of a 1-0 win at home against the likes of Southampton.

Chelsea vs Everton Prediction
Chelsea has retreated to low-scoring affairs in their last nine clashes across all major competitions in the schedule this season. Their last two PL games have ended in a draw, which suggests a shaky defense in the middle for the Blues, despite being one of the top five teams on the table as it stands.
The Pensioners have scored 41 goals in their 26 appearances so far this PL season. Despite their decent scoring average, the host has been scoring very few goals in recent games as mentioned earlier.
Ancelotti’s boys are one of the best away teams in the campaign this term. So, the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably be the best bet for the tight encounter at Stamford Bridge.
The host enjoys the ground advantage as the third-best home team in the league this season. Unbeaten in their last four attempts at home, the Blues have troubled the opponents in the middle. Besides, Everton has won none of their last 31 visits to this venue in any major contests.
Based on their h2h history and ground advantage, the home win in full-time will probably be another ideal choice to yield decent returns for the punters. Giroud finding the back of the net in recent fixtures will also propel Tuchel’s men for the upcoming clash.
