Chelsea vs Everton predictions: score, best bet, scorer tips
Best bet: Alvaro Morata to score first @ 7/2
Rewind to the start of the season and you’ll note how little had changed for Chelsea’s £60m forward. A new season, a new coach and yet goals at Stamford Bridge for Alvaro Morata still continued to prove troublesome. However, slowly but surely Sarri has brought out the attacking instincts Morata showcased so well in his last season for Madrid, where his 20 goals helped Los Blancos to a Champions League and La Liga double.
The first instalment of our Chelsea vs Everton predictions and betting tips then forecast the opening goal to arrive at the hands of Morata. The 26-year-old’s revival was no false down with five strikes in his last seven games propelling us to back this tip.
Better still, Morata has opened the scoring in three of Chelsea’s lasts seven games and with odds of 7/2 offered, this one is definitely worth keeping an eye on.
Score prediction: Match result Chelsea and Both Teams to Score betting at 17/10 pick.
The last time Chelsea failed to score was nine games ago – all the way back in September. The last time Everton didn’t hit the back of the net was on that very same 23rd September day.
In fact only Arsenal have prevented Everton from scoring in the Premier League season and that bodes well for our Chelsea vs Everton predictions where we project a win for Chelsea and Both Teams to Score at odds of 17/10.
Only Manchester City have scored more Premier League goals than Chelsea this season and the bout set to take place at Stamford Bridge, you can be sure of goals and a strong Chelsea performance.
