Chelsea v Everton Preview, Premiership, Saturday 22nd February 2014

Top of the table Chelsea play host to sixth place Everton on Saturday lunchtime and they will see themselves go four points clear at the top of the Premier league if they snatch all three points. Jose Mourinho’s men have been in fine form recently beating Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium in the league but lost to them in the fa cup which i believe they wont be too bothered by that result given there current league position.

Roberton Martinez and his Everton team go into this match having not won at Stamford Bridge since 2011 in the league cup. In the reverse fixture at Goodison Park this season Everton ran out 1-0 winners thanks to a fine effort from the in form Steven Naismith. Everton will be going into this game thinking they need something from this match to keep thier Champions League hopes alive.

Chelsea Team News:

Chelsea have recently welcomed Fernando Torres back from injury after a few weeks on the sidelines. The only notable absence for Chelsea is Marco Van Ginkel other than that they are injury free going into this game, they also have no players suspended.

Everton Team News:

Everton have a few injuries going into this fixture, Arouna kone and Darren Gibson are both still on the long term injury list with respective knee injuries. They also have Bryan Oviedo injured with a broken leg and Romelu Lukaku is out with an ankle injury and wouldnt be available anyway as Chelsea are his parent club. Everton like Chelsea have no players suspended for this fixture.

Chelsea v Everton Match Betting Odds Market

Chelsea have the all important home advantage going into this game and the bookmaker’s fancy the hosts for a win with the best price available being 3/5 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers).

The Draw could be good value here as Everton would see a draw as a good result at Stamford Bridge. I believe both teams will play attacking football and this might cancel each other out. The best price for the draw is available at 3/1 with Betfred (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) which I believe as value for money.

Everton’s form away from home this season has been pretty good and i think Roberto Martinez will encourage his players to have a real go at Chelsea and if you fancy an outside chance on Everton upsetting the Premier League leaders then the best price available for the visitors to win this game is at 11/2 with Totepool (£10 Free Bets for New Customers).

Chelsea v Everton Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Chelsea will be hoping to keep up their good recent home record and see of a much improved Everton team from last season. Eden hazard is in fantastic form this season and has been firing on all cylinders and with Willian and Samuel Eto also in good current form and the return of Fernando Torres then i can see Chelsea snatching this one by a narrow margin.

Everton will be going into this game with a bit of confidence as their last outing was a 3-1 victory against Swansea City in the Fa Cup 5th round. Everton also might take a little bit of confidence from the reverse fixture at Goodison park this season where they went a goal up and defended really well to hang on for a 1-0 victory, but it does seem that iff Everton are going to get a victory in this match then they would need to be at their very best on saturday afternoon.
