What Trueform says for Everton vs Chelsea
Everton have lost their last four encounters with Chelsea but our Trueform ratings suggest they can buck that trend this weekend.
The Toffees have dropped just two points from their last five Premier League fixtures – and that was via a fine 1-1 draw at Liverpool.
A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds
Everton climbed up to ninth in the table after beating Swansea 3-1 at this venue, with that come-from-behind victory further testament to the spirit immediately instilled by Allardyce.
Wayne Rooney, who missed one penalty but made it six goals in five games from a second spot-kick, commented: “I think the manager has got us back to basics.
“If we went a goal down, we had a feeling we wouldn’t get back in the game earlier in the season. We are much more solid now.
“We didn’t play as well as we can do, but we showed great character. Four weeks ago, we would have lost that game.”
Few have ever doubted the talent in this Everton squad and that much-improved attitude should help to keep them on an upward curve.
A Look At Chelsea’s Betting Odds
Chelsea suffered a blip earlier this month when losing 1-0 at West Ham but they have responded well with a trio of wins.
However, while the Blues put in a dominant display to prevail 3-1 at Huddersfield, they only edged out Southampton 1-0 and were made to work hard for a 2-1 EFL Cup success over Bournemouth.
Antonio Conte did praise his side for showing “great character and heart” in the midweek triumph, even if a much-changed line-up of experienced fringe players failed to catch the eye.
The pick of the bunch was probably regular first-team member Willian, who opened the scoring and showed his usual energy and enthusiasm.
EVERTON 3-1 Swansea – Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Wayne Rooney (pen)
