Everton – Chelsea, Premier League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR EVERTON - CHELESA
Everton were defeated in the Merseyside derby and although they scored 2 goals, they did not even look close to the quality offered by Liverpool. We would say that this is normal at Anfield, but it is not normal for Everton to be in the relegation zone once we see what kind of players they have and what budget they are handling at all. Huge sums have been invested in some of these players, but the results are pitiful. Silva was sacked in the next evening. That should have happened and it was expected. Duncan Ferguson is temporary the manager of the club.
The Blues are back on the winning streak after beating Aston Villa, which was not easy. A 2-1 success as Abraham scored again after returning quickly from the injury he received against Valencia. The fears of some of the Blues fans can be confirmed, because if Abraham does not play, it is not clear whether Chelsea will have such a success in scoring goals.
Expert view : Everton showed us how strong they can play in attack. And the 2 goals against Liverpool were more of mistakes of Liverpool’s defense, individual ones, but the very build up of Everton’s attacks was of the highest class. These are some of the few times we recognize the true power of Toffees. In addition, it can be seen easy that players were trying to play for their manager, which means there was no sabotage on Silva, but it didn’t work out and he’s gone now. We think they will score a goal vs Chelsea’s hesitant defense today, though, but the guests are the classiest team and are definitely the team expected to win, so here we are betting on BTTS at 1.62.
Everton have scored at least a goal in 10 of their last 12 home games
14 of Chelsea’s last 16 away games have been with BTTS
