According to prediction expert Jones Knows, Chelsea will play a score draw against Everton.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “Can Chelsea go all the way this season? It’s too early to answer that one – but we’ll certainly know more after this trip to Goodison Park.

“Yes, Everton aren’t quite the top-four contenders some had them out to be, but they are a force going forward when Richarlison is available for selection.

“In the eight games he’s started, Everton average 2.3 goals and create just under 11 chances per 90 minutes. That’s top-six standard football.

“His positioning off the left is very tricky for defenders to pick up as his game is all about being direct and getting into dangerous positions – it’s an area Chelsea struggled with against Leeds with Patrick Bamford’s goal coming from an attack down that side. Richarlison’s dynamic with Dominic Calvert-Lewin isn’t quite Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son levels of chemistry but the potential is certainly there on what we’ve seen this season.

“Richarlison has assisted three of Calvert-Lewin’s 11 goals this season – it’s 12/1 for that combination to come up trumps again this weekend.

“In what is likely to be an explosive game involving two deadly attacks, I’m happy to play the score draw.”

JONES KNOWS PREDICTS: 2-2
