Chelsea v Everton Premier League Betting Tips and Preview 08/03/2021
There’s another full fixture list in the Premier League this weekend, with some huge games taking place across the league. One of the biggest clashes at the top of the table sees Chelsea take on top four challengers Everton at Stamford Bridge at 8 p.m. on Monday. The two teams come into this match in very good form and there is only one point separating them in fourth and fifth place respectively. The fixture will also see former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti return to the Bridge to face his old side. With a potential Champions League spot at stake, Ancelotti will be offering no favours to his former team.
Team News and Form
Chelsea remain unbeaten in 10 games under Thomas Tuchel. The Blues have won seven out of ten since the German manager arrived in mid-January. They also earned an impressive 1-0 away win over Liverpool in their most recent game. Everton also head into this match in good form, winning three games in a row without conceding a goal. The Toffees are also unbeaten in nine away games and have won seven on the road in this run. As the sides are so evenly matched, bookmakers are providing some great value betting options.
The match winner odds for this match show Chelsea as the big favourites to secure a home win on Monday. The Blues have only lost twice at home all season and they are backed at 4/7 by William Hill to win again at the Bridge on Monday. But there are good value odds for a draw between the two sides. Unibet are providing the good returns for a stalemate between Chelsea and Everton at 16/5. Our tip for this fixture though is to back Everton to continue their excellent away form with a win against Chelsea. SBK have the best odds for a Toffees win and they are offering 29/5 for an away victory – excellent value for a team in good form on the road!
Everton have an impressive recent record against Chelsea, which could cause an upset on Monday evening. In the last six meetings between the two sides, Chelsea have only won once, while Everton have won three of the last four fixtures against the Blues. But Chelsea have won five of their last six games by score lines to nil. To back Tuchel’s side to win by 1-0 or 2-0 Bet Victor are currently providing the best odds at 6/1 and 7/1 for these score lines. However, our tip is to back Everton to continue their solid streak against Chelsea. The Toffees have not conceded in their last three Premier League matches and you can back the visitors to earn a narrow 1-0 win at odds of 15/1 provided by BetVictor.
Both Everton and Chelsea have built their recent good form on solid defences. As a result, they are both trailing other teams near the top of the table for the number of goals scored this season. Chelsea’s goals, in particular, have been spread more thinly amongst their squad. However, young midfielder Mason Mount has been in excellent form under Thomas Tuchel and has become a key player in recent weeks. The England international has found the net three times in his last five matches. Mount also scored a brilliant winner against Liverpool in mid-week and is backed at 10/3 to score at anytime this weekend. But our goalscorer tip for Chelsea v Everton is to back Everton’s Richarlison to score at any time. The Brazilian striker is one of the most in-form attackers in the Premier League and has scored six goals in his last six games. Unibet are currently offering the best odds for Richarlison to score again with odds of 17/4 to hit the back of the net at any time – a good return given his recent hot streak.
