Everton faces Chelsea on Saturday, December 12th at Goodison Park for an English Premier League match.
Everton is coming off a 1-1 draw at Burnley in its last game on December 5th. Everton started the Premier League season in fantastic form and fashion, but recently the club has struggled mightily. Everton has lost three of its last five matches, and a measly draw to Burnley is not impressive either. Everton is 5-2-4 on the year, which puts the club in 9th place in the Premier League standings. Everton has allowed nine goals in its last five matches, as the defense has been the biggest problem recently. Everton has scored 20 goals this season but has conceded 18 as well, giving the club a +2 goal differential this season. Everton will look to find a big win over a very tough opponent in Chelsea at home.
Chelsea is coming off a 1-1 draw to Krasnodar in its last game in UEFA Champions League competition. Chelsea's last Premier League match was against Leeds United on December 5th. In that match, Chelsea defeated Leeds United by the final score of 3-1. Chelsea may have started a bit slow in the Premier League at the beginning of the season, but The Blues have caught fire recently. Chelsea is unbeaten in its last nine Premier League matches to move to an impressive 6-4-1 on the season. That record puts Chelsea in 3rd place in the Premier League table as well. Chelsea has scored 25 goals and has only conceded 11 goals to its opponents, giving Chelsea a +14 goal differential.
The last time Everton and Chelsea met was on March 8th, 2020. In that match, Chelsea won by the final score of 4-0.
I like Chelsea to keep rolling and win this match on the road against a struggling Everton club. A win here for Everton would certainly snap Everton out of its current funk, but I just do not see it. Take Chelsea on the three-way money-line today.
