Chelsea vs Everton Prediction And Odds: Blues to crush the Toffees

Chelsea vs Everton Prediction And Odds: Chelsea will start as favorites to win the season opener against Everton as per the latest predictions.

With less than two weeks remaining for the English Premier League, the craze for the mega event is expected to reach its zenith in the football world. It’s already a high tie for the soccer pundits to start anticipating how the season can unfold for different clubs. The action begins in the EPL 2022-23 from 5 August 2022. Everton will start their campaign by hosting Chelsea in a home fixture on Saturday, 6 August.

The Toffees have a mighty challenge to not disappoint the fans again after an embarrassing last season. Frank Lampard’s side somehow managed to avoid relegation in the last EPL season. Things are not looking good for Everton even now as they faced two consecutive defeats against Arsenal and Minnesota this month. Fans were seen staging a protest in Goodison Park against the owner Farhad Moshiri for the club’s struggle in the transfer market. 

Chelsea will aim to start the new season on a positive note with an away win at the Goodison Park Stadium. It was a good reality check for the Blues in the pre-season clash against Arsenal. A defeat of 4-0 would have surely given Tuchel an idea of the areas his team needs to work upon. Chelsea is expected to start their campaign with dominating form by troubling the Toffees in their own backyard.

Chelsea vs Everton Prediction: Last Season Review

Everton: To sum up, the Toffees had a very disappointing season campaign in the last season of the Premier League. Until the last game, they had to fight to save themselves from the humiliation of relegation. Frank Lampard and his men have a lot of areas to ponder ahead of the upcoming season to give more memorable games for the fans. Some of the notable performers for Everton from the last campaign were Alex Iwobi, Vitalii Myolenko, Jordan Pickford, and Richarlison.

Chelsea: The Blues started the last season on a strong note but they just couldn’t finish as per the expectations. COVID cases and injuries constantly troubled them. Two defeats against Liverpool in the finals of the FA Cup and Carabao Cup must have been tough to digest for Tuchel. They also lost the Quarter-Final of the Champions League to real Madrid. By the end of the last season, the Blues could win just 2 of their last seven home games. The key performers for Chelsea were Mason Mount, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva, and Romelu Lukaku.
