chelsea1819The final action on a reduced English Premier League coupon this weekend come from Goodison Park on Sunday where Everton bid to dent Chelsea’s hopes of a top four finish.

 

 

 

Everton

Everton coughed up a 2-0 half time lead in a 3-2 defeat at Newcastle last week and they are just below halfway in the standings after taking just 4 points from their last 6 league outings. They return to Goodison where they drew 0-0 with Liverpool 2 weeks ago whilst earlier home games against top 6 opposition saw Manchester City win 2-0 and Spurs came away with a 6-2 victory. Everton have scored 21 goals in front of their own supporters and conceded the same number and 7 of the 15 home fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals.

 

 

Chelsea

Chelsea needed a late equalizer to salvage a 1-1 draw at home to Wolves last weekend. They finished the round in sixth position but with a game in hand over fifth paced Manchester United and fourth placed Arsenal. Victory here would see Chelsea join Arsenal on 60 points with little between the teams in terms of goal difference.

Away from home this season Chelsea have won 8, drawn 1 and lost 5 with 21 goals scored and the same number conceded. Of those 14 road trips 11 have seen backers of over 2.5 goals collect.

Top Scorers

Sigurdsson and Richarlison have both scored 11 league goals for Everton

Hazard has scored 13 league goals for Chelsea and Pedro has 8  

 

Head to Head

The first league meeting this season came at Stamford Bridge in November and it finished without a goal.

 

Verdict:

When you look at the parity between Everton goals scored and conceded record at Goodison and Chelsea’s tally when travelling it’s quite a coincidence. That may not be the strongest justification for a draw bet in the match result market but I think it’s a runner anyway.
