Kick-off: Wednesday, October 25 2017. 18:45 GMT
Venue: Stamford Bridge
It’s the League Cup fourth round, and Chelsea will host Everton at Stamford Bridge as both teams will try to fight for a place in the quarterfinals of the Carabao Cup.
Chelsea will enter this game with a bit of confidence, having come back from 2-1 down to defeat Watford 4-2 on Saturday. While Everton are in a bit of crisis as they threw away a 1-0 lead to lose 5-2 against Arsenal at Goodison Park.
Chelsea defeated Nottingham Forest 5-1 to get to the fourth round of the Carabao Cup, while Everton defeated Sunderland 3-0 in the League Cup third round.
In the last six games in all competitions, Chelsea have won three times, drawn once and lost twice, while the Toffees have been in a bad run having won one of their last six games, drawn two and lost three times.
Everton are in terrible form this season and are currently 18th on the table, which led to the sack of Ronald Koeman after their 5-2 defeat at home to Arsenal on Sunday.
Everton under-23 coach Unsworth and his assistant John Ebbrell will take charge of the first team in their League Cup fourth round tie at Chelsea on Wednesday night,
Everton defeated Chelsea 2-0 in the FA Cup quarterfinals back in March last year, and since then they have been continually beaten by Chelsea and are yet to score a goal against the Blues in the last three games.
Chelsea have won Everton 5-0, 3-0 and 2-0 in the last three meetings. The Blues have won 6 of the last nine games against Everton, and the two sides have met already this season in the Premier League, with Chelsea taking all three points at Stamford Bridge back in August with a 2-0 scoreline.
My prediction: Chelsea will take all three points tonight with a 2-0 scoreline.
