Everton struggled to consolidate their squad over the summer and are facing question marks over their ability to stay clear of relegation this season. Chelsea are looking to move on under a new owner and have strengthened with new arrivals but will have to be careful about starting well. I am backing this match to be low on goals and Everton springing a surprise by picking at least one point.

  • There have been under 2.5 goals in 7 of the last 9 matches between Everton and Chelsea (Premier League)
  • Everton have won their last 4 home matches against Chelsea (Premier League)
  • Everton have kept a clean sheet in 5 of their last 9 matches against Chelsea (Premier League)
  • Chelsea have lost just 4 of their last 28 away games (Premier League)

Head to Head


Everton and Chelsea have played 188 matches in all competitions so far with Chelsea winning 74, Everton winning 59 and the remaining 55 ending as draws.

Last year in the Premier League, Everton drew 1-1 at Stamford Bridge and winning 1-0 at Goodison Park.

Everton Form


It was only in the penultimate game of the last season that Everton could secure their Premier League safety. Manager Frank Lampard wouldn’t want to drag his side into another relegation battle and starting well could be the first step towards that.

The Toffees sold Richarlison in the summer to Tottenham and that could be a big blow to their hopes. Even with Dominic Calvert-Lewin set to face an extended injury break, Everton will be scrambling for options up front.

Thankfully, Everton have had a good record against Chelsea at home. They have won each of their last four home Premier League matches against Chelsea.

Everton Team News


Salomon Rondon is suspended while Andros Townsend, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Seamus Coleman are all injured. Tom Davies and Andre Gomes are also out with injuries for Everton, with Allan looking doubtful on match fitness.

Chelsea Form


Chelsea finished 3rd in the Premier League last season with 74 points and three points ahead of Tottenham. With a change in management over the summer, the Blues will be looking for a quick start.

Thomas Tuchel is still looking to sign new players like Marc Cucurella and Wesley Fofana but will look to start other new signings here. Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Kouliably should start for the visitors.

Goodison Park hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for Chelsea in recent times but will be confident in changing the script here. The Blues ended with the third-best away Premier League record last season and will hope to pile more misery on Everton.

Chelsea Team News


Timo Werner is a doubt for Chelsea with the forward looking to move to RB Leipzig in the summer. Ben Chilwell is set to start for the Blues after looking to have regained full fitness.

Verdict

Everton and Chelsea have undergone squad changes during the summer and will be gunning for a quick start. Everton look undercooked and undermanned at the moment but have had good results against Chelsea in recent times.

I am backing this match to be a low scorer with under 2.5 goals as my primary pick. As for the result, Everton may spring a surprise by picking up points from this contest.
