English Premier League: Chelsea and Everton look quite on par these days
Arsenal did indeed managed to demolish Newcastle and it turned out to be a very one-sided affair in the end – the question of whether they are going to keep that level of play or not nevertheless still remains in the air. Today, Chelsea will be taking on Everton in what might easily be the most even match-up of the entire round with both teams being quite on par these days.
Chelsea are obviously coming into this on the back of some extremely impressive performances, but they will be up against an outfit that knows how to defend and that is not going to open its back that often. It is never easy to travel away to the Goodison Park and Rafael Benitez will know that well. Ramires is set to finally return to the squad, but John Terry still remains sidelined with an injury. On the other side of the field, Everton is not going to have too many players back and will have to field a slightly weakened side. Nevertheless, there is still plenty of quality left for the home team and one can expect Everton to produce a good performance and end the year on a high note.
Bet365 believe that Chelsea can confirm that they are worthy favourites and have priced the team’s victory at 7/5, while the draw can be backed at 23/10 at the same bookies. Meanwhile, those that believe that Everton can end their year on a high by beating Chelsea can back the consistent squad at a touch above 2/1 with Pinnacle.
