Everton vs Chelsea
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 12th December 2020
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Goodison Park (Liverpool).
It’s very unfortunate for Everton that after such a good start to their league campaign they are now falling fast down the table and have lost 3 of their last five games.
Carlo Ancelotti’s team come into this match in 9th place with 17 points and are five points behind Chelsea. Last weekend Everton drew 1-1 at Burnley but with just 4 points earned from the last 15 available the club are not in good form.
To add to the misery their home form is not good either and have no wins in their last 3 matches. Everton’s last home win came against Brighton at the beginning of October and their last home match ended in a 1-0 loss to Leeds United.
Chelsea have looked like one of the strongest teams in the league in the past four weeks and they are in 3rd place with 22 points and just 2 points from the top. Because Tottenham and Liverpool are playing on Sunday it means that a win would put the Blues in 1st place.
Frank Lampard’s side have collected 13 points from their last 15 and have lost just once this season and that was against Liverpool, three months ago.
Everton vs Chelsea Head to Head
- Last season Everton beat Chelsea in this fixture 3-1.

- There is a 60% chance to see over 2.5 goals.
Everton vs Chelsea Prediction
Chelsea have the better squad and should start as the favourites however there are a couple things going against them. They had to play in the Champions League in midweek, although they were at home in a dead rubber game, so some regular players could be rested.
The other is being away and Chelsea do not have a fantastic record at Everton.
Everton are a good side but they have been missing a spark for several weeks now and this is the game that could be a turning point if most of the teams above them win again.
We are backing the away side to win, they are full of confidence and full of goals and it is difficult to see this Everton defence keeping a clean sheet against the quality that Chelsea have in their ranks.
