Everton vs. Chelsea – Chelsea will want to match their performance from the Premier League match they won 3-1 against Leicester City at King Power Stadium. Chelsea had a possession advantage of 51% and attempted 12 goals, scoring on three of them.
Ben Chilwell (11′), Kai Havertz (45′), and Mateo Kovai (78′) scored the goals for Chelsea. One of Leicester City’s 17 shots on goal was successful. Leicester City’s goal was scored by Patson Daka in the 39th minute.
The large number of scores with zero in them is an interesting trait of recent Chelsea games. In as many as five of their previous six games before to this one, a gamble on BTTS would have been a loss.
If it doesn’t matter, we’ll simply have to wait and see whether the trend in this game holds. Everton enters the contest fresh off a 1-0 Premier League victory against Brentford.
In the game, Everton enjoyed a 33% possession advantage and attempted 13 goals, six of which were successful. Everton’s lone goal came from Dwight McNeil (1′). Against their opponents, Brentford made 12 shots on goal, scoring four of them.
The fact that Everton has only scored four goals in their previous six games is clearly clear, and it is a disappointing statistic. The Toffees have also had a total of 10 goals scored against them in those contests by their opponents.
According to their prior performance, Everton has not beaten Chelsea in a league away game in the past 27 games.
Imagine the joy they must feel upon finally winning away. They have not had road success in any of their previous nine league games. Such a miserable run of road shows!
