Chelsea vs Everton Preview and Prediction: Chelsea to Win 2-0 at 11/2
Chelsea and Everton will play their third match of the Premier League season at Stamford Bridge in London on Sunday, 27th August.
Last season Chelsea won both games against Everton, the first 5 – 0 and the second 0 – 3. However, Everton did defeat Chelsea 2 – 0 in March of last year.
Chelsea has had a mixed start to their title defence. Last weekend they defeated Tottenham Hotspur 1 – 2 but in their opening game they were defeated 2 – 3 by Burnley FC and before that they lost the Community Shield to Arsenal.
In some ways Everton have had the more impressive start to the season. Wayne Rooney won them their first game 1 – 0 against Stoke City while in their second game they managed to hold Manchester City to a 1 – 1 draw, also with a goal from Rooney.
Chelsea will be keen to get some winning momentum going and have the obvious advantage of playing this game at home. However, Everton could cause them some problems and it is likely to be a highly competitive match.
A 2 – 0 win for Chelsea is the most likely outcome with Paddy Power and Boyle Sports both offering odds of 11/2.
