Chelsea v Everton Betting Tips & Predictions – Sunday 11th November 2018

Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea entertain Marco Silva’s Everton at Stamford Bridge in a Premier League fixture on Sunday afternoon. The Blues remain unbeaten in the league up until now, winning eight and drawing three of 11 Premier League fixtures. Before this weekend’s round of matches, Sarri’s side sit second in the table behind Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.

Silva’s men have made a decent enough start to their campaign, with five wins to their name already. However, getting anything from their trip to the capital this Sunday will be a tall order for the Toffees. Nonetheless, this should be an interesting Premier League encounter at the Bridge.

Sarri has made a real impact at Stamford Bridge since arriving, with Chelsea being very strong in the Premier League so far under the Italian. They are also flying in the UEFA Europa League and have reached the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup. With Liverpool only managing to draw with Arsenal last weekend, last Sunday’s 3-1 home win over Crystal Palace lifted the Blues up to second in the table, just two points behind leaders Man City. Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool are the only three teams left in the Premier League with an undefeated record.

Can the Blues Push for the Title?

Before a ball was kicked in the Premier League this season, all the talk was about a two-horse race for the title between Man City and Liverpool. However, after making such a great start to their Premier League campaign, are Chelsea now genuine title contenders? The majority of their squad have already won the Premier League, and Sarri is certainly an extremely experienced and talented manager. The Blues could have a say in the title race if they can keep up their fine form.

Morata to Excel in Giroud’s Absence?

On the whole, Alvaro Morata has had a difficult time since joining Chelsea from Real Madrid in a £60m deal last year, but the striker has shown glimpses of quality during his tenure at the Bridge. Olivier Giroud picked up a leg injury last month and is expected to be sidelined for a little while longer, leaving Morata to lead the line in the Frenchman’s absence. Last time out, the Spain international scored a brace in the 3-1 win over Palace, taking his tally to six goals for the season in all competitions, with three of those coming in his last three outings. Morata will be hoping to keep up his good form on Sunday.

Everton News: Steady Start by Silva

Goodison Park Prior to Match

Silva has made a decent start to his career at Goodison Park, guiding the club to five wins, three draws and three defeats in the Premier League thus far. The Toffees have been in good form of late, winning four of their last five in the league. Before beating Fulham 3-0 at home back in September, Everton had gone four Premier League games without a win. Silva is slowly but surely getting his viewpoints across at Goodison Park. The Toffees currently sit ninth in the table having taken 18 points from their opening 11 matches.

Toffees Tough to Beat at Home

Everton have been strong at Goodison Park under Silva, with only Chelsea and Man City having a better home record in the Premier League so far. The Merseysiders have won four, drawn one and lost one on their own patch. Since being surprisingly beaten 3-1 at home by West Ham United back in September, Everton have sealed three consecutive Premier League victories at Goodison, beating Fulham, Crystal Palace and Brighton & Hove Albion. Things have been tougher on the road, with Silva’s team winning just one of their five away league matches, losing two of their previous three.

Defensive Woes for Silva

Everton are likely to be without the defensive trio of Jonjoe Kenny, Phil Jagielka and Leighton Baines. Jagielka has been sidelined since August with a knee issue, but Kenny and Baines suffered their injuries earlier in the month. Baines picked up a stomach bug ahead of Everton’s Gor Mahia friendly, making him a doubt for the trip to Stamford Bridge.

Analysis: Chelsea to Get the Job on Home Turf

Everton are not an easy nut to crack under Silva, but Chelsea will fancy their chances of extending their unbeaten run to 12 Premier League matches on Sunday. The Blues are very strong at the Bridge, with only Man City picking up more home points so far. The Toffees will no doubt have a go in west London, but Chelsea should have enough to get past the Merseyside outfit at the weekend. We’re backing Sarri’s side to come out on top in this one.

Blues to Take the Points

Chelsea have not been beaten at Stamford Bridge in any competition since Tottenham Hotspur left with all three points in a Premier League fixture back in April of last season. Chelsea have looked very solid under Sarri, and we fancy the Blues to pick up yet another league victory on Sunday. The Londoners have won by more than one goal at home on four occasions this term, so back the Blues to win with a -1 goal handicap at 21/20 this Sunday.

Morata to Get Chelsea Up and Running

As we touched on, Chelsea’s Morata has been in good goalscoring form of late, netting three goals in his last three appearances for the Blues. The Spaniard will back himself to notch this weekend, and we like the look of the tempting odds of 9/2 for Morata to open the scoring in this one.

Hosts to be Leading at the Break

Chelsea have been leading at half time in each of their last five wins. Therefore, put a few quid on the home team to be winning at half time and full time at 21/20.

Recent Matches

Chelsea have a good record over Everton in recent times, as the Blues have won four and drawn one of their past five meetings with the Toffees. Everton’s last win in this fixture came back in March 2016, when Romelu Lukaku scored a brace in a 2-0 FA Cup triumph. Everton also took four points from the two Premier League fixtures that season.

23rd December 2017: Everton 0 – 0 Chelsea

Back in December of last season, these two sides played out a 0-0 draw at Goodison Park. There was not much festive cheer around, with neither team doing enough to claim all three points. Chelsea were the better side, but the Toffees held on for a point.

25th October 2017: Chelsea 2 – 1 Everton

The pair also met in the EFL Cup last season, with Chelsea running out narrow 2-1 winners. Antonio Rudiger’s goal gave the Blues a 26th minute lead, which Willian doubled in injury time. Dominic Calvert-Lewin pulled one back for the Toffees in the 94th minute, but the Blues did enough to claim a 2-1 win.

27th August 2018: Chelsea 2 – 0 Everton

The Premier League game at Stamford Bridge last season also ended in a victory for Chelsea. First half goals from Cesc Fabregas and Alvaro Morata was enough to give the home team a 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge.
