Welcome to our Everton vs Chelsea preview, prediction and head to head analysis. Everton are in 9th place in the league, they looked great in the second match of the season at Southampton, but defeats at home to Manchester City and a tepid draw at Tottenham have given them a less than ideal start to the season. Chelsea on the other hand have had their worst start to the season for many a year. Most people wrote off the season opening draw at home to Swansea as a temporary blip, but losses to Manchester City and Crystal Palace have seen them sink to 13th in the league. If the results don’t come, one has to ask how long before the manager’s position becomes untenable?
