A win away at Anfield shows Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea aren’t messing about as they’re now unbeaten in 10 matches under current management.
That win put a gap of four points between them and their opponents, though it’s the other half of Merseyside that are looking like their biggest challenge for the top four, with this another big six-point game in that race.
Everton have picked up three successive wins now, and a lot of that is down to the form of Richarlison who has now netted in four games on the bounce as they look to build some momentum.
However, while their first win at Anfield since the turn of the century was certainly an achievement, wins over Southampton and West Brom should probably have been expected considering the respective form of those sides.
What will be of concern for Chelsea here will be their opponents form on the road, with only Man City picking up more points per game away from home this season heading into this weekend.
Having said that, the Blues are yet to concede a goal at Stamford Bridge under their new manager and while that record will have to be broken at some point, it shows how difficult they are to break down at the moment, which has contributed to their strong home form this season, with only Man City and West Ham performing better on home soil this season.
Both Teams To Score
The recent head-to-heads certainly swing in the favour of the visitors, with Chelsea winning just one of the last six meetings, though it’s a different story at Stamford Bridge where Everton have a longer winless streak than they just broke at Anfield.
The London side are now unbeaten in 30 matches at Stamford Bridge against the Toffees across all competitions dating all the way back to 1994.
There’s little to go off on current form to suggest that Chelsea are going to squander that record on Monday night, though they look too short to get behind for us, so we’ll ignore the 1x2 market here.
While Chelsea have been impeccable defensively, conceding just twice under Tuchel with one of those goals coming due to a lack of communication between Antonio Rudiger and Edouard Mendy, they’re still going to concede goals from time to time and we’d expect this Everton attack to get on the scoresheet.
They’ve managed to find the net at least once in 10 of their 11 games against top half sides this season, while limiting that to just the sides in the top four, they’ve scored in all six of those matches, and the both teams to score market looks to hold the best value for us here.
