Chelsea will be looking to pull themselves further away from the top four dogfight when they travel to Goodison Park to face a struggling Everton side. Thomas Tuchel’s side are six points clear of fourth-place Arsenal but can easily find themselves battling for the last Champions League place if things do not improve.
The Blues are the favourites at 3/4 with Betfred while the Toffees are 19/5 to pull a shock win and a draw is 13/5. The visitors have won each of their last three league home matches against Chelsea but given their recent form, it will be a stretch to achieve a fourth successive home win in 49 years.
An underwhelming draw at Old Trafford means the Blues have picked up just two wins in their last five league outings as the gap on second-place Liverpool continues to grow to 13 points. With five matches to go, their only objective is to secure Champions League football at the very least.
For Frank Lampard’s Everton, they will be hoping their home form continues as they do not have a lot to hold on to it seems. The Toffees find themselves in the relegation zone, two points from safety with a game-in-hand but have picked up two wins and a draw in their last three home matches too.

Player to watch
I’m really frustrated that there seems to be a bit of underappreciation for Kai Havertz’s recent contributions in the Premier League. The German playmaker has picked up six goal involvements in the last eight league matches including an assist in their last match against United.
He may well have been wasteful against United but the German still has a knack of getting into a great position and find a chance or three. If he continues like that against a leaky side like Everton then I am confident he will feature on the scoresheet once again.
This will be the 188th meeting between the two sides with Chelsea picking up 74 wins, 56 draws and 57 defeats against Everton in all competitions. In the league, This will be the 166th meeting with Chelsea picking up 61 wins, 51 draws and 53 defeats in that time.
