Chelsea vs Everton Prediction & Match Preview

Chelsea

Everton

8 March 2021 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET Premier League Stamford Bridge

Buoyed by a hard-fought 1-0 win at Liverpool, Chelsea will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they welcome Everton at their Stamford Bridge on Monday. 


The Blues have been producing splendid displays ever since Thomas Tuchel took over the reins, and it is no wonder bookies see them as hot favourites to win the match. 

Timo Werner, who scored the winner against Liverpool, will be one of the men to keep an eye on in the home side.

Thiago Silva is a major doubt, while Abraham should be fit to face the Toffees, who defeated WBA in midweek thanks to Richarlison’s goal. 

Everton, though, will have a big fish to fry in Monday’s clash, and we do not believe that they are capable of shocking Thomas Tuchel’s troops, who are eyeing a place in the Champions League. 

Santi Mina remains in the recovery room, as well as Fabian Delph, but James Rodriguez has overcome his injury.

Team News:

Chelsea could welcome back experienced defender Thiago Silva, who has recently been struggling with a thigh problem, although Tuchel is unlikely to take any risks when it comes to the Brazilian, meaning that Andreas Christensen could again be given the nod in the middle of the defence.

Tammy Abraham is also a slight doubt with an ankle problem, but the home side are otherwise in excellent shape, leaving Tuchel with a number of decisions to make all across the pitch.

There are expected to be changes from the side that lined up at Anfield, with Olivier Giroud potentially returning to lead the attack, while Marcos Alonso, Christian Pulisic, Mateo Kovacic and Kai Havertz are pushing for starts.

As for Everton, Yerry Mina, Fabian Delph and Jean-Philippe Gbamin are definitely unavailable through injury, while there are also doubts over Seamus Coleman, Tom Davies, James Rodriguez and Robin Olsen.

Ancelotti is hopeful that Davies will be able to shake off a knock to feature in the middle of the park, while Allan and Gylfi Sigurdsson could also be in line for spots in the team.

Richarlison has scored in each of his last four Premier League appearances, and the Brazilian will again operate alongside Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the final third of the field.

Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; James, Kante, Jorginho, Alonso; Mount, Giroud, Werner

Everton possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Holgate, Godfrey, Keane, Digne; Doucoure, Allan, Davies; Sigurdsson; Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison
