The English champions had a bad start to their campaign and they were beaten by Burnley 2-3 in a match where they ended up playing with only 9 players, due to 2 players getting sent off.
Chelsea: Chelsea still has a squad with huge quality and even despite having lost Matic and with Diego Costa heading out, they have signed Rudiger and Morata, who added some quality.
Last weekend they travelled to play against Tottenham at White Hart Lane, and they won 2-1 with the unlikely hero being the Spaniard Marcos Alonso, who scored the 2 winning goals.
This season Chelsea will have to split their attentions between the Premier League and the Champions League, which is something they haven’t done last season, since they only had to focus on the Premier League.
Everton: The team from Liverpool hasn’t changed much from last season. Sure, they lost some key players, with Lukaku being the most blatant one, but they also have the return of Wayne Rooney, that has been an important player on this start of the season.
They will also play on the European competitions, after being able to advance in the Europa League play-off.
On the Premier League, they have 4 points in their 2 matches played, by beating Stoke at home 1-0 and drawing 1-1 at the Etihad against Manchester City, which was a rather positive result we must admit.
On Thursday, they were able to perform some rotation on the Europa League play-off 2nd leg, but they didn’t rest every starter, only about half of them.
Chelsea vs Everton Betting Tip:
Chelsea is a stronger side and I see them winning this match.
It won’t be easy because Everton is always a tricky opponent for any team, and that was proven once again in Manchester, where they caused City a lot of trouble and came out with one more point in the bag.
Chelsea has lost at home in their Premier League season debut and I don’t see them slipping up again, unless the match has some unexpected incidents again.
I believe and expect a close match between two teams with great players, but it is time for the English champions to step up and assert themselves, so they should get the win in this match.
