Everton and Chelsea play at Goodison Park in a 16th round match of the Barclays Premier League. The head ‑ to ‑ head record at this stadium favors the home team, which in the last 5 matches has won 3, tied 1 and lost 1. Really, in the last confrontation at this stadium, for the Barclays Premier League, on 17‑03‑2019, Everton won by (2‑0). Everton's goals were scored by Richarlison (49 ') and G. Sigurðsson (72'). Special attention is needed to home / away condition, as both teams have significantly different results in their home and away games.
The home team is currently in the 18 th position of the league, with 14 points won, after 4 wins, 2 draws and 9 losses. In the penultimate round, they have lost an away match against Leicester City by (2‑1). In the last match, they lost in an away match against Liverpool, by (5‑2). This is a home team that is stronger than when they play in front of their fans, as they have a record of 4 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses in the last 30 matches, with 16 goals scored and 20 conceded, against 8 wins, 2 draws and 5 home losses, with 20 goals scored and 15 conceded. In the last 7 home league matches Everton has a record of 3 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses, so they have won 10 points out of 21 possible. Defensive consistency hasn't been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for goals, since 13 of the last 20 matches have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In 15 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 9 times and have never been able to turn the score around.
Everton comes unmotivated for this round after a 5-2 away loss against Liverpool. One of the great qualities of the home team is their ability to demonstrate a disadvantage, and most of the time they are able to respond well. Everton has some difficulties in aerial football, given the low average height of their players. We believe the team plays at 4-3-3, where the three most advanced pieces are Richarlison, Iwobi and Calvert-Lewin. Everton coach will not be able to count on Coleman, André Gomes and Gbamin for being injured.
The away team is currently in the 4 th position, with 29 points won, after 9 wins, 2 draws and 4 losses. In the penultimate round, they have lost a home match against West Ham by (0‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Aston Villa, by (2‑1). This is a team that interestingly has been stronger away than at home, since in the last 30 matches it has registered 10 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses as a visitor; against 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses at their stadium. Their last away match for this competition ended in a defeat by (2‑1) against Manchester City. In the last 7 away league matches Chelsea has a record of 5 wins and 2 losses, having won 15 points out of 21 possible. Defensive consistency hasn't been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for goals, since 24 of their last 36 matches have ended with Over 2.5 goals. This is a team that usually does not have difficulty opening the scoring: scored the first goal in 12 of the last 15 games for Barclays Premier League, of those 12 reached the halftime lead in 6 and managed to maintain the lead until the end of 90 ' at 9.
Chelsea heads into this match motivated after a 2-1 home win against Aston Villa: Abraham and Mount scored the goals of the triumph. The visitor usually acts in the 4-3-3 tactical system favoring the fast transitions, mainly through the sides, being the three most advanced are Pulisic, Abraham and Willian. One of Chelsea's great qualities is defensive set balls, and they rarely give up goals in this situation. Coach Frank Lampard will be without Barkley and Loftus-Cheek as they are injured.
