This afternoon sees the 183rd competitive meeting between Chelsea and Everton with the pair set to go head-to-head at Stamford Bridge in the English Premier League.
Whilst Chelsea have won more meetings that Everton, The Blues’ recent record against The Toffees is not one that is so impressive.
Ahead of this afternoon’s meeting in SW6, we take a look back at the history books to summarise the last three meetings between the two sides.
11 November 2018 – Chelsea 0 Everton 0 (English Premier League)
Chelsea and Everton recorded their second consecutive goalless draw with the pair playing out a stalemate at Stamford Bridge in the English Premier League.
The Blues extended their unbeaten run in the English Premier League to 12 games but were unable to find a way beyond Jordan Pickford in the Everton goal.
Pickford denied Willian from a tight angle at the end of the first half before keeping out Alvaro Morata and Eden Hazard efforts early in the second half. Marcos Alonso then saw an effort strike the post while Morata had a goal disallowed for offside as the game ended goalless.
17 March 2019 – Everton 2 Chelsea 0 (English Premier League)
Chelsea’s UEFA Champions League qualification hopes were dealt a blow with a 2-0 defeat at Everton.
The Blues dominated in the first half with Eden Hazard’s shot hitting the post while Pedro produced a bad miss from just a few yards out.
Everton were better after the break and Richarlison headed in the opener before Gylfi Sigurdsson converted a penalty kick at the second attempt to make it 2-0 after Marcos Alonso had committed a foul in the box.
The defeat left Chelsea in sixth place, three points behind the UEFA Champions League qualification places with eight games remaining.
7 December 2019 – Everton 3 Chelsea 1 (English Premier League)
Duncan Ferguson’s first match as interim Everton manager produced a victory as his side saw off Chelsea with a 3-1 win at Goodison Park.
Richarlison headed Everton into an early lead before Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s precise finish made it 2-0 just after the break. Mateo Kovacic’s excellent long-range strike then saw Chelsea reduce the arrears before Calvert-Lewin’s second goal of the game made sure of victory for Everton with six minutes to go.
Chelsea remained in fourth position following the defeat with a five-point cushion on fifth-placed side Manchester United.
The latest meeting kicks-off at 2pm this afternoon and will be screened live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League channels.
