Kick Off: Saturday, November 5, 2016. 17:30 GMT

Venue: Stamford Bridge


Chelsea host Everton at Stamford Bridge, and it’s an important clash between two sides who are close to the top, and just separated by 4 points.

Chelsea are 4th on the table with just 22 points, while Everton are 6th with just 18 points.

Chelsea vs Everton has been keenly contested in recent times, and the Blues couldn’t get a win in this fixture last season. Everton won 3-1 at home while it ended in a 3-3 draw at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have won 3 of the last six fixtures, Everton 2, while 1 ended in a draw.

Chelsea are unbeaten in 21 Premier League home games against Everton since November 1994 (W11, D10).

Everton ended a five-match winless run in all competitions by beating West Ham last weekend.

Diego Costa has scored three goals in his three league games against Everton.

Chelsea earned a 3-3 draw in the corresponding fixture last season courtesy of John Terry’s controversial 98th-minute equaliser – the latest goal recorded in the Premier League in 2015-16.

My prediction: Chelsea 2 v 0 Everton
