The Blues go into the weekend two points behind Tottenham and Liverpool, but with neither in action until the following day, Lampard’s men could leapfrog the current pacesetters.
A midweek draw with Krasnodar in their Champions League dead-rubber will have done little to impact the confidence of a Chelsea side who have not lost in the league in almost three months.
Everton, meanwhile, have faltered after their flying start to the season with just one win in their last seven games.
Everton vs Chelsea prediction: 1-2 away win
The Toffees’ early-season promise has faded, with Carlo Ancelotti’s side now down in ninth. Chelsea, on the other hand, look to be getting better each week.
Date, kick-off time and venue
Everton vs Chelsea is scheduled for an 8pm GMT kick-off on Saturday, December 12, 2020.
The game will be played behind-closed-doors at Goodison Park, with fans still unable to attend because Liverpool falls within Tier 3 of the Government’s coronavirus restrictions.
