Goodison Park to host the Blues after Everton’s 3-0 win over the Magpies

Amid the 10-point deduction crisis for Everton FC, they have amped up their game on the field. After a 3-0 defeat at Goodison Park to Manchester United, the Toffees have won their subsequent Premier League games. This includes a 1-0 away win over Nottingham Forest and a 3-0 thumping victory over Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United.

Chelsea on the other hand have had two sentoffs in the last three Premier League games. Unlike the Toffees win over the Magpies, The Blues suffered against Newcastle. In a trip to St James’ Park, Chelsea lost 4-1 with also a red card to right back Reece James. In a 3-2 home win over Brighton, Conor Gallagher got a red. Last game they travelled to Old Trafford only to lose 2-1 to Manchester United.

Players to Watch

Abdoulaye Doucouré (Everton)

One of the goalscorers against the Magpies was Abdoulaye Doucouré at the Goodison Park. Doucouré was signed in September 2020, alongside Allan and James Rodríguez to form a formidable midfield trio. Now only Doucouré is left, who is excelling this season. The midfielder already has 5 goals.

Nicolas Jackson (Chelsea)

Just a month ago, the Chelsea striker scored a hattrick against Ange Postecoglou’s Tottenham. Then later he scored again against Man City. Now we see Nicolas Jackson on a 3-game drought after failing to score against Newcastle, Brighton and Man United. The player will be eager to increase his 6 goal PL tally so far.

Match Facts

  • The Toffees (1.2 goals per PL match) are ranked 13 in goals scored per match while the Blues (1.7 goals per PL match) visit ranked 8
  • Chelsea haven’t kept a clean sheet in last 5 matches while Everton have kept 2 clean sheets in last 2 games

Injury & Team News

For Everton, defensive midfielder André Gomes and central midfielder Amadou Onana missed the Newcastle United game due to a calf injury. Both are doubtful for this game as well. Former Tottenham Hotspur attacking midfielder Dele Alli is on the road to be fit after a hip injury. Alli will need a few more days.

Chelsea have a lengthy injury list. The likes of Wesley Fofana, Trevoh Chalobah, Romeo Lavia, Noni Madueke, Marcus Bettinelli, Malo Gusto, Christopher Nkunku, Carney Chukwuemeka and Ben Chilwell are all unavailable.

Head to Head

Total Matches – 31

Draws – 7

Predicted Lineup

Everton predicted lineup (4-4-1-1):

Pickford (GK); Coleman, Tarkowski, Branthwaite, Mykolenko; Young, Doucoure, Gueye, McNeil; Harrison; Calvert-Lewin

Chelsea predicted lineup (4-3-3):

Sanchez (GK); James, Disasi, Badiashile, Colwill; Enzo, Caicedo, Gallagher; Palmer, Jackson, Sterling

Match Prediction for Everton vs Chelsea

Everton’s win over Newcastle United with a clean sheet should only act as a boost. The Newcastle game was hosted at Goodison Park and now they once again will play as hosts. The home side might just win 3 games in a row as the visitors have been lacking conviction for most of the season.

Prediction: Everton 1-0 Chelsea
