Chelsea vs Everton Preview

Chelsea vs Everton

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium: Stamford Bridge

Date: 15th April 2024

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Everton’s quest for Premier League survival continues on Monday when they travel to London to play Chelsea.

The Blues come into this contest boasting their longest-unbeaten Premier League run of the campaign (W3, D4) with credible results against Manchester City (1-1) and Manchester United (4-3 win) the highlight of that run.

Yet consistency remains an ongoing issue for Mauricio Pochettino’s men who have failed to beat the current bottom two sides, Burnley (2-2) and Sheffield United (2-2). The most recent draw against Sheffield added to their record of scoring and conceding at least twice in each of their last seven competitive matches.

No top-flight side has ever done so in eight consecutive games before and that’ll be a record Chelsea won’t want to achieve. They do at least start the round just five points from the top-six with a game in hand on United in sixth so there should still be plenty of motivation to get among the wins here while a proud record of no home league defeat against Everton since 1994 should inspire plenty of confidence (W15, D13).

Meanwhile, Everton travel south on the back of another points deduction for breaching the Premier League’s profit and sustainability regulations meaning they’re now eight points worse off than what they should be based on their results this season.

Sean Dyche’s men now face the prospect of potentially finishing the round in the bottom three if results go against them and if they can’t improve on their rotten Stamford Bridge record here. However, the Toffees will be motivated to win here and secure a league double over Chelsea for the first time since 1978/79 after finally ending a 13-game winless league run with a 1-0 win over Burnley in their last outing.
