Chelsea vs Everton (CHE VS EVE)
League: Premier League
Date: Saturday,18th Mar 2023
Time: 11:00 PM (IST)
Venue: Stamford Bridge, London
Graham Potter’s team secured a victory against Leeds United earlier this month, which was followed by a convincing 3-1 win over Leicester City last weekend. In between these triumphs, the team managed a remarkable comeback to win 2-0 against Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League, thus securing a spot in the quarterfinals.
Despite this recent improvement in results, Potter’s team still sits in tenth place in the standings, far from the European spots. Although this has provided some relief to the beleaguered manager, there is still a long way to go before they can compete at the highest level.
On the other hand, Everton is currently struggling in the Premier League, sitting five places below the Blues in the standings with just 25 points. The Toffees are fighting to avoid relegation, having won only six times in 27 games this season. They managed a narrow 1-0 victory over Brentford last Saturday, with Dwight McNeil’s first-minute goal securing all three points for the struggling team.
Chelsea vs Everton Head-to-Head
Chelsea and Everton are about to face each other for the 190th time, with Chelsea holding a 75-59 lead in their head-to-head record. After securing a 1-0 victory over Everton in their initial Premier League encounter this season, Chelsea aims to accomplish a league double over them, a feat they haven’t achieved since the 2016-17 campaign. In their previous eight meetings, Chelsea and Everton have only drawn once, in December 2021’s Premier League match. Since November 1994, Everton has not defeated Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, with a 1-0 victory in the Premier League.
Ahead of today’s match, Chelsea’s predicted lineup includes Kepa as the goalkeeper, while the rest of the starting 11 is expected to comprise K. Havertz, Joao Felix, Christan Pulisic, K. Koulibaly, B. Chilwell, M. Kovačić, Enzo Fernandez, R. James, Benoit Badiashile, and W. Fofana. This lineup boasts impressive statistics, with Havertz having scored 6 goals and provided 1 assist, Felix with 1 goal and 0 assists, Pulisic with 1 goal and 1 assist, Koulibaly with 2 goals and 1 assist, Chilwell with 2 goals and 2 assists, Kovačić with 1 goal and 1 assist each, and James, Pulišić, and Fofana with 1 goal and 1 assist apiece.
For today’s match, Everton’s predicted lineup features J. Pickford as the goalkeeper, while the starting 11 is expected to include D. Gray, D. McNeil, J. Tarkowski, A. Iwobi, A. Onana, Idrissa Gueye, S. Coleman, Ben Godfrey, A. Doucouré, and Michael Keane. This lineup has some notable achievements, with Gray having scored 4 goals and provided 1 assist, McNeil with 3 goals and 2 assists, Iwobi with 1 goal and 6 assists, Onana and Coady with 1 goal and 1 assist each, Coleman with 1 goal, and Doucouré with 1 goal.
Player to Watch: Ben Chilwell
After returning to the starting eleven following an injury, England’s Ben Chilwell has delivered some impressive performances, and we anticipate another strong showing from the former Leicester player in the upcoming match against Everton. Chilwell, who has contributed 2 goals and 2 assists in the current Premier League season, scored against his former club last week and is expected to venture forward and provide support in the box and crosses for the forwards, particularly if Chelsea controls the game, as we anticipate.
Chilwell’s attacking prowess could be the deciding factor in Saturday’s game, and Everton’s right flank will need to put in a significant effort to contain the rampaging full-back.
