Chelsea Vs Everton
Chelsea did not start their Premier League title defence brilliantly. They opened the competitive campaign with a penalty loss in the community shield against Arsenal. Later, Chelsea suffered a humiliating defeat against Burnley. Luckily, Antonio Conte got their title defence back last weekend with a 2-1 win against Tottenham. Marcos Alonso scored both goals giving Tottenham a dreadful start to the Premier League.
Everton, on the other hand, had a decent way of starting the season. Their match with Manchester City ended in a 1-1 draw on Monday. However, Stamford Bridge does not have an outstanding record for Toffees. Everton has failed to win any of their 22 Premier League visits to Chelsea besides losing 12 of the total. To top it all up, in their last 40 Premier League away matches, Everton has only won 1 match against top 6 games.
All arrows are pointing to a Chelsea win with high scores. Chelsea shined at the start of the last season. However, with Gary Cahill suspended they look more fragile. Chelsea conceded 3 at home games to Burnley besides keeping only one clean sheet in their last 9 home league matches. Everton has scored 10 in their 13 away matches. Therefore, odds of 21/20 for both teams to score look good value.
