Everton News: Tough Season for Silva

Goodison Park Prior to Match

Silva has had a testing first season at Goodison Park, as the club sit in in 11th place in the table with eight games left to play. After 30 Premier League fixtures, the Toffees have won 10, drawn seven and lost 13, scoring 41 and conceding 42. Since a 1-0 win at Huddersfield Town back in January, Everton have lost four of their last six in the league, picking up a mere four points from the last 18 on the table.

No Wins in Three at Goodison

Everton have not won at home in the Premier League since a 2-0 victory over Bournemouth in mid-January. In recent weeks, the Merseysiders have lost 3-1 to Wolverhampton Wanderers and 2-0 to Manchester City, but they did pick up a 0-0 draw with Liverpool in their last home outing. Silva’s side have secured just six home league wins this term, losing five times along the way.

Chelsea News: Blues Back in Form

Since their embarrassing 6-0 defeat to Man City at the Etihad Stadium last month, Chelsea have hit back with seven points from nine. The Blues beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 at home before seeing off rivals Fulham by a 2-1 scoreline at Craven Cottage. Last time out in the Premier League, though, Eden Hazard scored at the end to rescue a 1-1 draw with Wolves at Stamford Bridge. The Londoners warmed up for this one with an emphatic 5-0 victory at Dynamo Kiev in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday to progress through to the last eight.

Battle for the Top Four

Chelsea are involved in a fascinating scrap for a UEFA Champions League place. The west London club are currently in sixth place, three points behind fourth placed Arsenal with Manchester United sandwiched in between. Three points on Sunday will see Chelsea climb above United and go level on points with the Gunners. Of course, if the Blues fail to make the top four via the league route, they can still qualify for the Champions League by winning this season’s Europa League.

Giroud’s Time to Shine?

It’s been a frustrating season for Olivier Giroud, who has spent a lot of time on the substitutes’ bench. However, the Frenchman is the top scorer in the Europa League, netting a hat-trick in Kiev on Thursday night. With Gonzalo Higuain picking up an illness in the week, Giroud could get the nod in attack at Goodison. When called upon, the former Arsenal man never lets the side down, and Giroud will be hoping to make the most of his sporadic chances in the Premier League for the remainder of the season.

Analysis: Away Side to Steal a Win

Silva and Sarri are under real pressure at the moment. In fact, Sarri is available at 8/11 to be the next manager to leave his post in the Premier League while Silva is second favourite at 6/1. Both managers will be desperate for a win in this one, but we can see Sarri’s Chelsea piling more misery on Silva & Co at Goodison Park at the weekend.

Sarri’s Men to Do the Business

Since losing the Carabao Cup final to Man City on penalties back in February, Chelsea are unbeaten in five matches in all competitions, winning four and drawing one. After dropping points at home to Wolves last time out, Sarri’s side will want to hit back with a win on Sunday. This could be close, but back the Blues to edge it at odds of 19/20.

Shutout for the Blues

Everton have failed to score in their last two games at Goodison, losing 2-0 to Man City and drawing 0-0 with local rivals Liverpool. Chelsea, meanwhile, have kept clean sheets in six of their last eight victories in all competitions. We can see the away team keeping Everton at bay in a 1-0 win at odds of 7/1 at the weekend.

Hazard on Target Again for Chelsea

Eden Hazard scored in Chelsea’s last league match, netting in injury time to earn the Blues a point against Wolves at the Bridge. The Belgium international has helped himself to an impressive 13 Premier League goals this term, with only Sergio Aguero, Mohamed Salah, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Harry Kane, Sadio Mane and Raheem Sterling netting more up until now. Back Hazard to score in a Chelsea to win at a decent enough price of 2/1.

Recent Matches

Even though the last two meetings have ended in goalless draws, Chelsea have a good record over Everton in recent years, winning four of the last six in all competitions. The Toffees have not beaten the Blues since a Romelu Lukaku brace gave them a 2-0 FA Cup win back in March 2016.

11th November 2018: Chelsea 0 – 0 Everton

Everton frustrated Chelsea when the pair locked horns at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season. The Blues came the closest, with Marcus Alonso hitting a post late on. Chelsea had more of the ball and plenty of efforts on goal, but Silva’s side held firm to earn an excellent point in west London.

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 2017: 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.
