Everton V Chelsea: Match Preview And Betting Odds

After getting back to winning ways against Aston Villa midweek, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard will be confident of getting a result when his side travel to face Everton at Goodison Park.

Marco Silva could well be sacked following the 5-2 defeat to Liverpool so the Blues will likely be facing the Merseysiders at the perfect time in the early kickoff on Saturday.

Chelsea should have Antonio Rudiger back for the game with the German having fully recovered from a groin problem. Ross Barkley could also return after illness, but Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Achilles) and Marco van Ginkel (knee) remain out of contention.

Everton captain Seamus Coleman is a major doubt with a rib injury, while Fabian Delph is also struggling with a hamstring issue. Andre Gomes (ankle), Cuco Martina (knee) and Jean-Philippe Gbamin (thigh) are all unavailable.

The bookmakers have made Chelsea as firm favourites to get the win this weekend. The Blues are currently 21/20 at Ladbrokes to clinch the three points with a draw 5/2 with Betfred. A victory for Everton is 29/10 at Betfair.

Predicted Score – 3-1 to Chelsea
