Tip Reasoning

  • Everton have lost 19 of 32 games this season
  • The hosts have lost four of their last six matches
  • Chelsea have won seven of their eight visits to the bottom 10

Long awaited meeting

Frank Lampard will meet the man who succeeded him at Chelsea for the first time this weekend, as his relegation threatened Everton host the Blues. Lampard’s reign at Stamford Bridge was brought to an abrupt end in January last year, with Thomas Tuchel guiding them to European and World titles.

Lampard installed the foundations of that side during his 18-month spell, which could come back to haunt him. He certainly picked the Blues up from a low-ebb in 2019, but now he needs to find a way to beat them as Everton slip towards the Championship.

Toffees in trouble

With Burnley rejuvenated following the departure of Sean Dyche, Everton have found themselves in the bottom three. The Toffees are staring down the prospect of a first relegation in the Premier League era.

A 2-0 loss at Liverpool last weekend certainly didn’t help matters and with only two wins from their last nine, the Toffees are in serious danger. They head into this game with 19 defeats in 32 games, while they’ve suffered 10 of those against sides in the top 10.

Tough afternoon for Lampard

Given Chelsea’s previous, it’s not a shock that Lampard is the 10th manager to meet the Blues in the Premier League after being sacked by them. However, former bosses rarely outwit them, with seven of those nine losing their first league meeting after departing Stamford Bridge.

The Blues have won seven of eight visits to bottom half teams this season and they’ve excelled against the strugglers. They’ve won 2-1, 3-1 and 4-0 against the bottom four on the road and they should cruise to another win this weekend.

Everton have lost four of their last six matches and Chelsea look like good value to add to those struggles. Back the Blues to claim a victory in this one, while I’m going with a 2-1 win for them as my correct score prediction.

Everton predicted lineup: Pickford; Coleman, Holgate, Keane, Mykolenko; Doucoure, Allan, Iwobi; Gray, Richarlison, Gordon

Chelsea predicted lineup: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Silva, Rudiger; James, Kante, Jorginho, Alonso; Mount, Havertz, Werner
