The Blue derby of the Premier League will have its first episode Saturday evening, at Stamford Bridge, where the local team prepares to take on Everton.
If we look at the standings, the only thing stopping this game from being the derby of the day is the fact that Arsenal plays Tottenham this weekend as well. What can we expect to see at Stamford Bridge?

A close game, that’s for sure, since Everton have quite a good record against Chelsea. They have manage to avoid defeat in their last 3 games against Chelsea, won 2 of them, and are typically a team which Chelsea seems to have trouble playing against.
Moreover, they are led by Lukaku, who surely wants to score against his old club which didn’t give him a lot of chances, just like he did in the League Cup last season.
There are 2 things which are worrying for Everton: some injuries (Kone, McCarthy, Pennington, Besic) and the fact that they haven’t won away from home in their last 3 outings.
On the other hand, Chelsea has picked up speed and are now a single point behind the league leaders. They come after an exciting 2-0 away win against Southampton and are in absolute super form.
They’ve won their last 4 games, in which they haven’t conceded a single goal, but scored 11. Hazard and Costa are in awesome form, with the latter being the current top scorer of the league.
Chelsea vs Everton Betting Tips
Do we need to say more? Although historically, Everton has chances of getting something out of the game, Chelsea’s current form is nothing short of extraordinary.
We predict a home win, with Costa being the most likely player to find his name on the scoresheet. Also we do expect a few yellow cards in the game since both squads enjoy playing physical football.
