Saturday’s early kick off sees Chelsea host Everton and we have free football betting tips.
Chelsea will be looking to recapture their Premier League form after a disappointing draw against West Brom last week, before being knocked out of the FA Cup by title-rivals Manchester City four days ago.
Despite that draw away at West Brom, Chelsea still sit top of the league due to Arsenal’s draw against Manchester United and City’s game against Sunderland called off because of the weather. Manchester City face an easy home game against Stoke, therefore need Chelsea to keep the pressure on Pellegrini’s men.
Everton will want to keep the pressure on Liverpool and Tottenham too in the race for 4th place. They sit 8 behind Liverpool but they too lost their game in midweek due to the extreme weather, so have a game in hand to close the gap.
Lacina Traore looked a handful on his debut against Swansea, scoring after 4 minutes. The 6ft 8 Monaco loanee is likely to start again ahead of utility striker Steven Naismith, despite the latter coming on to change the game. Everton looked good away at Tottenham last week and on another day they’d have got the result they wanted, and certainly warranted based on their performance.
Chelsea home record under Mourinho is impressive and no one is likely to back against them, although I do feel Everton can score there, particularly with the rampant fullbacks of Baines and Coleman crossing to Traore. Both teams to score and Chelsea win is 12/5.
Despite the Merseyside derby, Everton have never been a side who can be turned over, even against some of the best teams. Under 2.5 goals is great value at evens with William Hill.
Hazard looks like he can score every time he touches the ball at the moment, there’s great value in the Belgian to score and Chelsea to win.
