Sturridge shows Rooney how it's done
Everton play a Chelsea side that are difficult to beat at home. The hosts may have conceded in every league game since their 0-0 draw against Stoke but they are still very much in the title race.
Villas-Boas has introduced a new style of football to Chelsea, they are very attacking to the detriment to their defence. They were stronger at the back under the leadership of Grant, Ancelotti and Mourinho but they now send players piling forward.
The midfield is packed with attacking players and they have started playing the adventurous Meireles in defensive midfield. Chelsea lost to United 3-1 at Old Trafford in September but they had twenty shots to Man Utd's twelve.
Chelsea are 4/11 to win the clash, the draw is 15/4 and the away win in is 15/2. Chelsea are undefeated in ten league games at the Bridge and should have no trouble disposing this strapped for cash Everton side. However, if you fancy the Toffees for three points, they are 5/1 draw no bet.
The best punt has to be both teams to score at Even money. Chelsea will be without the suspended Torres but they will start with Torres and Sturridge in attack. Moyes men may have struggled to find the net but West London boys will surge forward and they can hit them on the break.
Sturridge is becoming a fans favourite and he could be leading the line for England in the European Championships. Sturridge is 7/2 to grab the first goal and he may look like he plays with a swagger and appear greedy but he is a fantastic prospect.
The ex-Man City player is hungry to play and he has shown that he has an eye for goal.
Everton were beaten last time out in the Merseyside derby but the result may have been different had Rodwell not been controversially sent-off. Everton were unable to press Liverpool and the result was never in doubt, his ban has now been rescinded.
The Toffees will be relying on Cahill taking advantage of an ill-disciplined Blues' defence. He is 7/2 to score anytime and he is fantastic with his head. With Torres not starting for Chelsea, they should call upon Lampard to play behind Drogba.
He was fantastic against both Valencia and Bolton. He scored a hat-trick against the Trotters and it was a sign that he is unwelcome at the club. He has scored four shots from just five shots on target in the league this season and he is 5/1 to score two or more. Since all the press articles were published stating that his days at Chelsea appear numbered, he has stepped up his game.
Drogba has not yet signed an extension to his contract at the club and he is free to leave in the summer along with Bosingwa, Anelka and Kalou. He has a superb record against Everton, and he has scored seven goals in his last nine appearances against the club. He is 3/1 to open the scoring at the Bridge.
Chelsea -1 goal is 19/20 and it could shorten before kick-off, they were superb against a poor Bolton away from home and they could take the Toffees apart. Everton are weaker without Arteta and Chelsea may have just found some form.
