Reason for Chelsea vs Everton Predictions
Title contenders Chelsea play host to a struggling Everton side desperate for a win on matchday 17 of the Premier League. It looked like the Blues were going to drop points in their last match against Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds, but a contentious penalty decision in extra time allowed Jorginho to rescue all three points from the spot. That win was just Chelsea’s second in five games as they had hit somewhat of a rough patch after their great form to start the season. Mateo Kovacic (Coronavirus) and Ben Chilwell (Knee Injury) will be missing for Chelsea gaffer Thomas Tuchel. Hakim Ziyech plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the opposition’s defense. Many clubs are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Timo Werner is an incredible player, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. He should build upon his last season’s performance. N’Golo Kante is one of the best midfielders in the world, all praise for him.
The visitors haven’t fared well on their travels to Stamford Bridge, failing to win in their last 11 visits, and the pressure is mounting for under-fire Everton manager Rafa Benitez. Benitez is currently the oddsmakers’ favorite to get the sack, and a poor result here could ultimately seal the Spaniard’s fate. Everton has been on an awful run, winning just once in their last ten matches. Things won’t get any easier as they face a Chelsea team looking to stay in the title race. After being defeated in their previous game at the hands of Crystal Palace in Premier League action, Everton will be hoping to turn things around here. After a morale-boosting 2-1 home win to Arsenal, which most likely bought Benitez more time, the Toffees disappointingly followed that up with a 3-1 away loss to Palace. That loss was Everton’s fourth straight away defeat and their seventh out of the last nine. Richarlison was forced off after 58 minutes with a potential thigh problem and might miss the trip to the Bridge, although Everton looked improved with replacement Rondon’s physicality up top. Allan plays excellently and does not allow the opponent to play in the middle of the field. Demarai Gray is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance.
Chelsea is a big favorite in this match, and they are expected to solve the question of the winner at halftime.
The prediction for this match is over 2.5 goals. We hope that football fans will enjoy this match.
