Chelsea and Everton clash in the Premier League’s early kick-off on Monday night with both sides likely keen to avoid defeat.

Everton have rejuvenated their form in recent weeks after enduing a miserable winter that saw them slump out of the top four, while Chelsea are back in business following the appointment of Thomas Tuchel as manager.

Tuchel will expect to extend his unbeaten run of four home Premier League fixtures since he took over at Stamford Bridge but his troops come into this tie after Thursday’s tricky encounter with Liverpool.

Everton, meanwhile, played West Brom four days ago but will head to London confident of picking up at least a point here after beating Chelsea 1-0 at Goodison Park earlier in the season.

A win for the Toffees would greatly boost their chances of nailing European football for next season, yet both managers would likely take a point before kick-off.

Chelsea vs Everton: Match Preview

Chelsea come into the game with an exceptional 1-0 victory over Liverpool at Anfield, with their star performer Mason Mount yet again on the scoresheet. Chelsea have handled their tough fixture list brilliantly having not lost a game yet under Thomas Tuchel. The Blues would be pushing for the top 4 finish as rivals Manchester United and Leicester City falter in their campaigns, while the London club keep racking up valuable points, said Alley Sports.

Everton have won their 3 successive games in the Premier League, and are currently in the 5th position, just 1 point behind Chelsea, with a game in hand. Everton would be seeking a victory against Chelsea to halt their run to the top 4 and get breathing space in their own European journey. Everton beat West Brom 1-0 as they head into the Chelsea encounter, hoping to get a result at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea: Thiago Silva remains a doubt for the Blues, though Andreas Christensen’s Man of the Match performance on Thursday will bring great confidence to those around him, according to Radio Times.

Tammy Abraham also missed the Liverpool clash, but Timo Werner is showing greater signs of life in recent weeks and should continue upfront.

Everton: Allan is expected to start after recovering from injury issues, while in-form Gylfi Sigurdsson is also making it hard for Carlo Ancelotti to keep him out right now.

James Rodriguez, Seamus Coleman and Tom Davies are all expected to feature in the squad but it may be too soon for any to start.

Chelsea vs Everton: Prediction

Thomas Tuchel’s unbeaten record as Chelsea head coach remains intact, with the Blues having not lost in their last ten matches in all competition following their latest triumph, an impressive 0-1 victory over Liverpool at Anfield. His side faces a stiff test this Monday vs Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton, who have accrued nine points from their most recent three Premier League fixtures. Both Tuchel and Ancelotti have looked to establish a strong defensive core within their teams and that may come to the fore in this encounter regardless of who emerges victorious. So with that in mind, under 2.5 goals scored appears the smart play with just one of Tuchel’s ten games so far in charge of Chelsea seeing more than 2.5 goals scored, as reported by The Stats Zone.
