The Toffees have been in dreamland since Sam Allardyce arrived at the club. Wins over West Ham, Huddersfield and Newcastle have propelled them to 10th in the table with 17 games played. Sam Allardyce spoke of his disbelief at his team’s defending before he arrived at the club – something he has instantly fixed with Everton only conceding 1 goal under Allardyce so far. Wayne Rooney has been instrumental in Everton’s return to form and he now has 10 goals this season for his boyhood club.


Antonio Conte’s Chelsea have picked up an impressive 25 points from a possible 30 in their last 10 Premier League games but have perhaps lacked the substance and style of last season. The Blues sit 3rd, 3 points behind Manchester United in second but 5 clear of Arsenal in 5th place. Eden Hazard’s form has co-insided with Chelsea’s improved performances of late and he has scored 8 goals in all competitions for Chelsea this term.

Head to Head

Chelsea lead the head to head record between the two sides comfortably, leading bt 72 to wins to 54 with another 52 games ending in draws historically. This will be the third meeting between the sides already this term – Chelsea winning the reverse league fixture 2-0 back in August before claiming a 2-1 win in the 4th round of the Carabao Cup in October.
