Past Chelsea v Everton Meetings

Everton have beaten Chelsea on only nine occasions since 1994, with only a penalty shootout victory after a draw in London in an FA Cup tie in 2011 their only victory outside of Goodison Park.

Antonio Conte’s side won both fixtures very comfortably last season, triumphing 5-0 at Stamford Bridge before a 3-0 victory at Merseyside in their title run-in.

The previous campaign, when the London Blues finished 10th in their worst season this century, Everton won 3-1 at home with a 3-3 away draw and a 2-0 FA Cup victory.

This fixture is usually extremely high scoring, with 30 goals in the last seven fixtures – at a rate of more than four goals per game.

It is also a fixture which attracts a lot of red cards, with three in the last six clashes.


Chelsea v Everton Stats

Chelsea did not get a single red card in the 2016/17 Premier League campaign, but received two last week on the opening day against Burnley – Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas were both dismissed.

Antonio Conte won his opening three league games last season, but suffered an early season home defeat to Merseyside opposition, losing 2-1 to Liverpool.

The only Everton player who has previously scored against Chelsea who is available for the Toffees is Kevin Miralles, with Ramiro Funes Mori ruled out by injury.

Everton are without an away win in the Premier League since a 1-0 victory at Crystal Palace on 21st January – a run of nine games without a win.


Chelsea v Everton Team News

Eden Hazard (ankle) is a major doubt for the hosts, having returned to light training last week he is not expected to be match fit in time for Sunday.

Cesc Fabregas will return from his suspensions although Gary Cahill still has two more matches to sit out.

Everton have four long-term injury absentees: Ross Barkley is out after undergoing groin surgery, Seamus Coleman’s broken leg rules him out while Ramiro Funes Mori and Yannick Bolasie (knee) are both out until the new year.

Aaron Lennon (knock) and James McCarthy (knee) should both return for the Toffees, but Sandro Ramirez is a doubt and Morgan Schneiderlin is suspended.



Reason for Chelsea v Everton Bets

Everton have conceded only one goal in five matches this season – Raheem Sterling’s late equaliser for Manchester City on Monday night.

Ronald Koeman’s side are a well-drilled unit who are tough to break down while Eden Hazard is a massive offensive loss for the hosts.

Chelsea will be favourites for this game, freshly buoyed by an impressive victory over Tottenham at Wembley.

The return of Fabregas will add depth to the midfield but Cahill is still a big absence at the back due to lack of alternatives currently in the squad.

This game is too tight to call between two teams with excellent tacticians, and despite a rejuvenated Wayne Rooney and probable first Everton start for Gylfi Sigurdsson, it is not likely to be a game with goals.
