Chelsea are in the Premier League top four and in brilliant form under manager Thomas Tuchel. The Blues’ form under the German manager shows the club were right to sack Frank Lampard and hire the former Paris Saint-Germain coach. Chelsea are second in the current form table having taken 14 points from their last 18 on offer.

Everton are fifth in the Premier League and in a fight to qualify for the Champions League next season. On Thursday night, Everton defeated West Brom, 1-0. For a few hours, Carlo Ancelotti’s team were in fourth place. However, Chelsea’s 1-0 win at Anfield versus Liverpool sent them into the top four.

Monday night’s game is a massive Premier League six-point affair. The winner of the matchday 28 game could have the inside track to qualify for next season’s Champions League. Based on form, Tuchel’s team look more likely to stay in form and make the top form. The Blues are just four points off of second-placed Manchester United. With Chelsea looking great and the Red Devils appearing to be out of steam, Tuchel could lead his side to a runners-up finish.

Everton won the reverse fixture versus Chelsea at Goodison Park in December, 1-0. Gylfi Sigurdsson scored a first-half penalty to give the Toffees the win. Can Everton do the double over an in-form Chelsea team? Chelsea are playing their best football of the season and won’t be easy to defeat.

Chelsea vs Everton Betting Odds

Chelsea took 14 points from their last 18 on offer. They posted a +5-goal difference during that six-game time span with seven goals for and two against. Leading sportsbooks have Chelsea at odds of 4/7 to win at Stamford Bridge and solidify their place in the top four. A win could see them move into the top three depending on Leicester City’s result against Brighton on Saturday.

Since Tuchel took over, Chelsea are unbeaten in four straight league matches at home. Overall, Chelsea have recorded 23 points from 39 possible at Stamford Bridge scoring 23 goals and allowing 11 to opponents.

Ancelotti’s Eveton are at odds of 11/2 to claim a win at full-time versus Chelsea. The Toffees are on a three-game winning streak in the league, which ended a three-match span without a victory. Jordan Pickford came up big on Thursday night versus West Brom to prevent the team from dropping points in a nip-and-tuck fixture.

Everton have the league’s fourth-best away points total with 29 points taken from 39 on offer. They have not lost in their last six road games and won five times in those six games away from Goodison Park. This is a good team on the road and Chelsea will have their work cut out for them. Stamford Bridge hasn’t been kind to Everton, however. They have not won in west London in over 20 years.

Chelsea vs Everton Team News

Tuchel has just two names on the Chelsea injury list going into the game this weekend at Stamford Bridge. Centre-back Thiago Silva remains injured with a leg muscle issue. He is back in training and there is hope of a return this Monday; however, Tuchel could hold back the ageing defender for the team’s busy upcoming schedule. Centre-back Andreas Christensen should start in defence once more after impressive again versus Liverpool.

Striker Tammy Abraham could miss the fixture with an ankle/foot injury. He could be held back to have him ready to play when the Champions League last 16 restarts. Abraham was linked this week with a transfer to West Ham

Chelsea’s last four matches in the league all ended with under 2.5 goals scored. Since taking over, Tuchel’s team have not scored more than 2.0 goals in a single league match.

Mason Mount to score anytime @ 10/3 - BET NOW

Mason Mount was an automatic selection under Lampard. The former manager loved the attacking midfielder and there were questions over whether Mount was a player worthy of his selection or merely played due to Lampard’s love for him. Mount has played well since Tuchel took over, proving he is a player worthy of starting most games for a top Premier League club.

The English midfielder has scored five goals in 26 appearances in the Premier League this season. He bagged the winner versus Liverpool on Thursday night with a brilliant strike coming in from the left-hand side. Mount has appeared in all eight of Tuchel’s matches at Chelsea in the league and has bagged three goals during that time.

Chelsea are in form but so are Everton. Monday night’s game should be a low-scoring match. Expect the fixture to be a defensive struggle with Chelsea getting the edge over their former manager with a narrow win.
