Chelsea vs Everton
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 11th November 2018
Kick-off at 14:15 UK/ 15:15 CET
Venue: Stamford Bridge, London.
Sarri’s men will be coming into this home game a happy lot after being able to clinch another win against BATE Borisov in their Europa League fixture on Thursday night. In the EPL, they are still unbeaten and are second in line in the current league standings.
With the view of things, they will strive to continue with their unbeaten run in this home game. Particularly, they will want to add another win to their 2 back-to-back wins against Burnley and Crystal Palace. They will want to bag 3 points and keep alive their dreams to lift the league title at the end of the season.
Giroud finally found the back of the net in their outing at Borisov after a long goalless run this season he should feature among the Starting XI and we hope to see him get his first EPL goal this season too. On Thursday night, Sarri engaged Hazard for 60 minutes and he will be able to feature in this home game and maybe for little longer. Notably, Chelsea has a fully fit squad ahead of Sunday’s fixture.
Everton managed to come back to win last weekend’s fixture against Brighton after a 2-1 loss at Old Trafford. This was Everton’s only defeat in their last five primer league matches. They are in are in the 9th place after garnering 18 points.
It is factual to state that Stamford Bridge has not been a happy hunting ground for Everton. As it is, they are in winless in their last six outings against the Blues. On Tuesday night, they were against a Kenyan Premier League side, Gor Mahia who they ruthlessly thrashed 4 goals to nil.
This was enough warm-up ahead of Sunday’s EPL fixture. The likes of Sigurdsson, Richarlison and Theo Walcott did not feature in this international club friendly matchup. They will return in action on Sunday. Yerry Mina will make his much anticipated Everton debut in this matchup.

Chelsea vs Everton: Prediction
Chelsea is the favorite to win in this home matchup. they are in great form and we do not anticipate them to experience their first loss of the season in the hands of Everton. On the other hands, Everton has been able to score in their last 5 EPL matches and may net at least one goal here. We should not rule out the fact that this may end with over 2.5 goals.
