The bid to avoid relegation to the Championship continues this weekend with Everton hosting Chelsea. The Toffees dropped into the bottom three last weekend and will be desperate to find a result here to avoid spending another week in the drop zone.
The team have now won just two of their last ten games and things are looking dire for Frank Lampard’s side. They do have a game in hand over relegation rivals, Burnley, but the team have looked devoid of all confidence in the past few weeks.
There is the added twist of Lampard coming up against the club that he became synonymous with as a player, and briefly managed, but Chelsea will not be out to do their club legend any favours after a less than impressive run of results themselves.
A midweek draw away to Manchester United showcased the attacking potential within the side, with 21 shots, but the side weren’t able to find the net enough to claim the win, effectively ending whatever dwindling title hopes Chelsea fans may have held.

Everton vs Chelsea match stats
Everton have lost 19 of their 32 games this season, a horrendous record that has put them in massive relegation trouble and time is running out for The Toffees. They have averaged a goal a game over their last five fixtures but a 1-0 win over Manchester United is the only positive during that time.
Chelsea have won two of their last five games, faltering slightly after crashing out of the Champions League. They are all but assured of their place in the top four though, with only the biggest of collapses seeing them drop into fifth place.
