Everton vs Chelsea
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 1 May 2022
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Goodison Park.
Everton are really playing with fire right now. They are placed 18th in a table of 20, and now it is realistic that they can be relegated to the Championship.
They have six fixtures remaining and they need to come up with a surplus of three points in order to avoid getting the boot. However, they are going through a struggling stretch of results, and to cause them even more worries they have some really hard fixtures remaining.
This weekend they are at home and they are supposed to take on the current European champions, the Blues.
Chelsea are placed third in the table at the moment, and as of now they are determined to secure this third position mathematically. Also they need to reduce the gap between the top two teams as much as they can, to protect their ego.
Comparatively they have been in far better form than the Toffees and they have scored in plenty in the past few months. And particularly on the road, they have been on a superb scoring stretch.
Considering the form of the Blues, and the desperation of Everton, expect a high scoring win for Chelsea this Sunday.

Everton vs Chelsea Prediction & Analysis
Everton lost 2-0 on the road the last matchday against arch rivals Liverpool. They were also winless in seven of their past nine games, And even though they have improved their form quite a bit at home, they have not had the opportunity to take on a great team like the Blues yet.
