Chelsea V Everton – Team News And Predicted XI Plus Betting Odds

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri’s unbeaten run now extends to 17 matches after Thursday evening’s 1-0 win over BATE Borisov.

It has been an incredible start for the Italian and he’ll want to continue in the same vein against Everton tomorrow. Marco Silva’s side have won four of their last five games, with their only blip coming against Manchester United.

However, the Toffees have only picked up five points from five games on the road this campaign while Sarri’s men remain undefeated at Stamford Bridge.

With regards to team news, the Blues have a fully fit squad. Olivier Giroud (leg) and Ethan Ampadu (knee) both returned to the matchday 18 against BATE along with Eden Hazard (back).

Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger, Marcos Alonso, N’Golo Kante and Alvaro Morata were all rested midweek, and are all in line to return to the starting eleven to face Everton.

The Merseysiders have doubts over Richarlison’s fitness due to an ankle injury he picked up against Brighton, but Leighton Baines is expected to be fit, following a stomach complaint.

James McCarthy (broken leg) is closing in on a first-team return following 11 months on the sidelines. The Irish international played in a friendly on Tuesday evening.

At the bookies, Chelsea are solid favourites to come out winners with the Blues 5/11 odds-on at 118BET.  The best odds you will get for a draw are 17/4, and for an Everton win 15/2, both with Bet365.

Chelsea’s Predicted XI to face Everton:

Kepa, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, David Luiz, Alonso, Kante,  Jorginho, Barkley, Willian, Morata, Hazard

Everton’s Predicted XI

Pickford, Coleman, Zouma, Keane, Digne, Gomes, Gueye, Walcott, Sigurdsson, Bernard, Richarlison

Predicted Score – Chelsea to win 3-0
