Chelsea vs Everton Betting Tips
The Blues are flying high at the moment in the Premier League. This team is in the 4th place, which is the last one that takes directly to the Champions League. The trouble is that there are several teams breathing by their necks. For instance, Manchester United and Wolves have only 3 points fewer than Chelsea at the moment. In addition, Sheffield United has 5 points fewer, but this team has also played one match fewer.
What all this means is that if the Blues wish to stay in such a high position, they need to keep on playing well. Actually, they need to improve their Premier League form. Chelsea has won only 6 points in their previous 5 league matches, which isn’t enough. The good news for the Chelsea fans is that this team is coming into the clash with Everton after beating mighty Liverpool by 2:0 in the FA Cup, thus eliminating the Reds out of the competition.
Speaking of eliminations, the Blues have practically lost the battle with Bayern Munich in the Champions League. It would take a miracle for Chelsea to advance to the quarterfinal as they’ve lost to the German champion by 3:0 in London. The second leg is played in Germany and the English team is an absolute underdog.
However, the fact that they have come to an end of their Champions League journey means that Chelsea can focus on domestic competitions, primarily the Premier League. With a win on Sunday, they could get closer to Leicester, at least for the time being. A win over Everton would also help them secure their spot among the Champions League teams.
Another good news is that Ancelotti’s Everton seems exactly like the team Chelsea love to play against. The London Blues like to have the ball in their feet and attack all the time. Everton players, on the other hand, love to defend when faced against a tough opponent such as Chelsea.

Chelsea Form and Latest News
Kepa is back after Lampard kept him sidelined for a couple of matches, appointing Caballero as the goalie. The most expensive goalkeeper in the world got another chance from the Chelsea manager in the FA Cup game with Liverpool and he did take it. He was one of the best players in that game and everyone’s expecting to see more from him.
Everton Form and Latest News
Everton is not a bad side and with such a good manager as Ancelotti, they have every right to hope for a relatively high position in the table. Still, the Toffees are definitely not as good as Chelsea, especially when the Blues are playing in London. A dignified defeat is probably the best they can get from this game.
