Jose Mourinho’s unbeaten home record in the Premier League now stands at 73 matches and the outspoken Portuguese’s Chelsea side are expected to extend that sequence as they entertain Everton in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off.
The league leaders are just 4/7 with BetVictor to get the better of the Toffees, who are an 11/2 chance at bet365 to end Mourinho’s remarkable run and Stan James post 3/1 against it finishing all square.
However, the Blues have won eleven of 13 at Stamford Bridge, only dropping points to West Brom and West Ham curiously and as Everton have appeared a touch short of cutting edge of late, it’s difficult to overlook the hosts. Nevertheless, the Toffees’ modest four defeats this term are testament to their resilience and they should be able to keep it close.Ladbrokes’s 13/5 about a home win by a one-goal margin stands out then and more accurately, a case can be made for the Blues to grab the only goal at 13/2 courtesy of Winner.com while in attack, the intelligence and craft of Eden Hazard, an 11/2 chance (Stan James) to net first, could be required to break down the stubborn visitors.
