Why you should back Chelsea
The Blues (13-8-6, 47 points) have yielded two goals (one an own goal) in the 10 games under Tuchel, going 8-0-2. That includes clean sheets against Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham and a 1-0 Champions League win against Atletico Madrid. Chelsea has opted for an extra defender but can still create scoring chances, and Everton hasn’t won at Stamford Bridge in its last 25 tries.
Chelsea has six players with at least four goals, led by Tammy Abraham with six, and Mason Mount (five goals, three assists) and Timo Werner (five goals and five assists) create opportunities. The Blues are plus-17 in goal differential, third-best in the league, while Everton has scored just six more than it has allowed. Goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has six clean sheets in his first 10 home starts.
Why you should back Everton
The Toffees (14-4-8, 46 points) beat Chelsea 1-0 at Goodison Park and are looking to complete their first league double over Chelsea since 1978-79. Everton has won three of the last four against the Blues. Manager Carlo Ancelotti is a master tactician, and his squad comes in on a strong three-game win streak started with a huge 2-0 win at Liverpool in the Merseyside derby.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin is the key to the attack and entered the weekend tied for fourth in the EPL with 13 goals. Ten Everton players have at least one goal. Richarlison has six and three assists, while Gylfi Sigurdsson has six career goals against Chelsea. Lucas Digne is one of the league’s best defenders and helps push the attack, tying for sixth in the EPL with six assists.
