Everton vs Chelsea Prediction & Betting tips
Everton receives Chelsea in-house Saturday afternoon. Sam Allardyce got the job nicely on the ride, but did he also catch surprising points against Chelsea?
The arrival of Sam Allardyce did not harm Everton. Everton is now in a ninth place and the departure of Ronald Koeman (and the subsequent ‘departure’ of David Unsworth) proved to be a good choice for the board. This Everton appears more capable than the beginning of the season seemed to point out. The future looks at least a bit rosier.
On Monday evening, Wayne Rooney made the difference for Everton in the home game against Swansea City. The English striker missed a penalty, gave an assist and then made a later penalty. According to Rooney Everton went back to the base under Sam Allardyce and that has also won victory against Swansea. Even after the 0-1 deficit, The Toffees did not panic and were able to pull the game towards themselves. It is a sign of the completely returned trust.
Meanwhile, Everton is already six games in a row unbeaten in all competitions and of those six games, no less than five were won. In-house, the last four league games were won one by one and in those four games twelve goals were scored. So yes, you can speak of a real revival and the trust is very great for meeting Chelsea. Rightly so.
Chelsea is currently in third place in the Premier League and Antonio Conte has already given up the Premier League. He has already admitted that Manchester City is almost impossible to catch up. And he might be right about that, because The Citizens’ lead is no less than fourteen points. You normally do not get over there as Chelsea.
At the weekend, the home game against Southampton was on the program and that was decided by a utilized free kick by Marcos Alonso in injury time of the first half. The Blues had the entire game under control and especially Willian, Hazard and Pedro impressed with handy footwork and nice passes. The Southampton defense, however, did one thing very well and that was to keep Hazard further away from the goal, so Chelsea just missed that finishing touch.
Last Wednesday, Chelsea played the quarterfinals against AFC Bournemouth in-house. That game seemed to be heading for an extension after Ryan Gosling made the 1-1 in the ninetieth minute, but Álvaro Morata made the 2-1 one minute later. That it would be difficult, was already clear, because Chelsea started with eight other players in the base than the weekend before was the case. In any case, the damage has been limited and a number of players have been able to rest. Eventually, players like Bakayoko, Hazard and Morata did come within the lines, but they played a maximum of thirty minutes. And the damage is not completely limited, because after his yellow card against Bournemouth Álvaro Morata is suspended.
