Everton seems incapable to make a series of good results, which is the main reason why they are positioned around mid-table. After victory in Cardiff of 3-0 they played a goalless draw with Liverpool. Then came away match with Newcastle that seemed like a good chance to play three good matches in a ro. After they took a lead of 2-0 it looked like that victory is theirs, especially after Pickford defended a penalty. Still, they felt apart in last 20 minute when they received three goals and lost 3-2. Coleman didn’t play then but should be back now. Zouma cannot play as he is borrowed from Chelsea and cannot play against “his” team.
Probable lineups Everton: Pickford – Coleman, M. Keane, Y. Mina, Digne – I. Gueye, A. Gomes – Richarlison, G. Sigurdsson, Bernard – Calvert-Lewin
Chelsea is in good rhythm; it has seven-game unbeaten streak, although drew with Manchester City in the final of League Cup has ended as defeat. In the Premier League they blundered in the previous round after two wins in a row since they merely drew with Wolverhampton at home. They even should be happy about the result as they were trailing behind and Hazard equalised in the added time. Tiredness can be felt as they play in the Europa League too in which they showed no mercy to Dynamo Kyiv. They won them by aggregated 8-0 and qualified for the quarter-finals in a grand style. Giroud made a name for himself in the 2nd leg and now is again a starter, including all other best players.
Probable lineups Chelsea: Arrizabalaga – Azpilicueta, D. Luiz, Rudiger, Emerson – Kante, Jorginho, Barkley – Pedro, Giroud, E. Hazard
Everton vs Chelsea PICK
We forecast a hard game; Everton doesn’t exactly shine but when it has its day it is very hard to score against them. Chelsea is tired because of the Europa League and it is not likely that will excel in this match, so all in all we don’t expect to see too many goals at the Goodison.
Pick: under 2.5 goals
