Chelsea vs Everton Preview and Prediction – April 15, 2024

On Monday night, Chelsea hosts Everton at Stamford Bridge, with both teams aiming for a favorable result for different reasons.

Match Preview

Despite inconsistencies earlier in the season, Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea enters Matchday 33 with an impressive unbeaten run.

Last weekend, Chelsea settled for a 2-2 draw against Sheffield United, conceding a late goal in the 93rd minute.

This draw extended Chelsea’s unbeaten streak in the Premier League to seven matches, including three wins and four draws since their last defeat.

Pochettino’s team has lost only one of their last 11 games across all competitions, experiencing defeat against Liverpool in the EFL Cup final in February.

On the other hand, Everton secured a narrow 1-0 victory over Burnley last weekend, ending a 13-game winless streak.

Despite their win, Everton faced challenges, possessing the ball for just 37% of the match against the 10-man Burnley.

Earlier this week, Everton received a two-point deduction, placing them just two points above the relegation zone with seven games left.

Head-to-Head:

In their previous encounter in December, Everton defeated Chelsea 2-0, avoiding defeat in four of their last five meetings.

However, Everton has struggled historically at Stamford Bridge, failing to win any of their previous 28 matches there.

Team News & Updates:

Chelsea will miss several players due to injuries, including Christoper Nkunku, Reece James, Levi Colwill, Robert Sanchez, Wesley Fofana, Romeo Lavia, and Lesley Uhochukwu.

For Everton, Lewis Dobbin and Dele Alli remain sidelined, while Dominic Calvert-Lewin, James Garner, and Arnaut Danjuma are doubtful for Monday’s match.

Prediction & Analysis:

Despite Everton’s resilience in recent meetings, Chelsea’s formidable home record suggests they will emerge victorious.

The Toffees have struggled at Stamford Bridge, failing to win in their previous 28 attempts.

Chelsea’s dominance at home, combined with Everton’s precarious position, points towards a high-scoring win for the hosts, potentially surpassing 2.5 goals.
