Chelsea will be looking to keep tabs with the leaderboard in the EPL when they welcome Everton to Stamford Bridge on Thursday night. Both teams had contrasting outcomes in the last round of league games. The Blues barely scraped through a win against Leeds United at the weekend while the Toffees went down 3-1 at Crystal Palace.

We will turn the spotlight on Frapapa, which is one of the best bookmakers in Nigeria, for our Premier League predictions in this preview.

CHELSEA

Chelsea appeared to be heading towards another stalemate at home in the league against a dogged and determined Leeds United, but a late penalty, their second of the game, was dispatched by Jorginho to spare the home team some blushes and secure all three points on offer in a 3-2 victory. That said, the fact that they conceded twice shows some chink in Chelsea’s armour. They have been solid at the back for most of the season but have now failed to keep a clean sheet in their last four straight Premier League games and Tuchel will be looking to get that fixed asap.

The Blues remain third on the log but are now 5 points adrift of Manchester City who went on a rampage in their midweek match on Tuesday. A victory will cut that back to 2 points and they will be pushing to do just that.

EVERTON

Despite the dramatic win over Arsenal last Monday, the Toffees could not carry that momentum into their very next game as they slouched to a 3-1 defeat at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace for their seventh loss in their last 9 EPL matches!

Pressure is certainly mounting on Everton boss Rafael Benitez to try and steady the ship that appears to have hit an iceberg. They are 14th on the log, a mere 7 points away from safety, despite playing a game more. Any further slip-ups could see them sucked into a full-blown relegation dogfight.

This has not been a happy hunting ground for them. They have lost on four of the last five visits at Stamford Bridge and all indications are this could yet be another empty trip for them.

CHELSEA VS EVERTON PREDICTIONS

Despite their less than ideal defensive output in Tuchel’s eyes in recent weeks, Chelsea have been lighting it up on the other end at the Bridge. They have found the back of the net 15 times in their last 5 EPL home games. With Everton still missing key players and Chelsea conversely reinforcing their attack with the return of key attacking options, we can’t see anything other than an easy win for the Blues here. We are backing them to overcome a -1 handicap bet @ 1.66 with Frapapa as the first of our football betting tips today.

We expect Everton to put up a bit of resistance at the start of this contest but things will then open up as the match progresses and fatigue sets in. As such we feel the 2nd half of this game is where the action will be. Frapapa have priced the Most Goals 2nd Half option @ 2.03 and we are snapping this up for our last shout here.
