Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea had to rely on a late equaliser from Eden Hazard at Stamford Bridge against Wolves last weekend to avoid defeat. That was at least their third game in a row without defeat in the top fight. In their last away game, they did get three points with a 2-1 success at Fulham. However, the Blues were not comfortable in the closing stages at all. That win at Craven Cottage snapped a three-match losing streak Chelsea were on away from home.

Chelsea didn’t net in any of the those three defeats either. Four of the five defeats this season from Chelsea have happened against current top-seven sides. Chelsea’s road record for the term stands at W8 D1 L5. Chelsea have taken a clean sheet in 36% of their away games and they have scored at an average of 1.5 goals per home games. 79% of their top-flight away fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals this season. Chelsea have not managed to earn a clean sheet in any of their last four away games. They have netted the first goal in nine of their fourteen away games this season.

Everton v Chelsea Predictions

Draw: This just has the feel of going the way of a share of the spoils. Chelsea still look a little unconvincing in the final third of the pitch. Everton may be able to dig out a point as they did recently against Liverpool.
