Everton face Chelsea at Goodison Park on Sunday 10 December in what looks set to be a feisty encounter in Liverpool. The Everton vs Chelsea last five H2Hs show us that absolutely anything can happen in this fixture and the current form of the two sides backs that up, too. Expect the unexpected when the action gets underway at 14:00 UK time.
Everton vs Chelsea H2H record
The Everton vs Chelsea rivalry goes back to 1907 when the two clubs first met at Stamford Bridge in front of 50,000 people. Chelsea got the better of the Toffees on that occasion and have gone on to have a superior record over them, however, that hasn't always been the case.
- Everton Wins: 59
- Draws: 56
- Chelsea Wins: 75
Chelsea's dominance in the Everton vs Chelsea H2H properly started in the early 2000s when the club was purchased by billionaire, Roman Abramovich. From 2001-2010, Chelsea remained undefeated over the Toffees in a run that stretched an incredible 25 games. As part of that run, Chelsea defeated the Toffees in the 2009 FA Cup final.
Everton vs Chelsea last five H2Hs
Chelsea 2-0 Everton – 8th March 2021
Chelsea's last victory over Everton at Stamford Bridge came in March 2021 with behind-closed-doors football still taking place due to the Covid pandemic. Everton had enjoyed a decent-enough season but had very little to play for this point while Chelsea were pushing for a place in the top four. Thomas Tuchel's side got the win thanks to a Ben Godfrey own goal and a Jorginho penalty.
Chelsea 1-1 Everton – 16th December 2021
Fans were back inside Stamford Bridge when the two clubs next met in London and the game was a much tighter affair. Chelsea's faint hopes of being involved in the title race ended here with Mason Mount's opener being cancelled out by a goal from Jarrad Branthwaite. The result bought Rafa Benitez more time in the Everon dugout but he was replaced by Frank Lampard a month later.
Everton 1-0 Chelsea – 1st May 2022
Frank Lampard secured a huge victory against his former club in May 2022 with Everton desperately battling against relegation. The Toffees were five points from safety with five games to go heading into the match but a second-half strike from Richarlison breathed new life into the club's survival efforts. Everton would go on to narrowly beat the drop while Chelsea finished in third place.
Everton 0-1 Chelsea – 6th August 2022
The buzz of surviving relegation was still in the air when Everton welcomed Chelsea back to Goodison Park on the opening day of the 2022/23 Premier League season. The match itself was a scrappy one so it was perhaps fitting that it was decided by a penalty in the ninth minute of first-half stoppage time from Jorginho. This would be the last Everton vs Chelsea H2H that Thomas Tuchel would manage.
Chelsea 2-2 Everton – 18th March 2023
The most recent Everton vs Chelsea H2H came in March 2023. The match saw two struggling teams face each other with Everton once again fighting for survival and Chelsea in the midst of their worst-ever Premier League season. The Toffees came from behind twice to earn a valuable point at Stamford Bridge, one that would help them steer clear of the drop once again. Graham Potter was fired as Chelsea manager just two weeks later.
Potential MVP – Abdoulaye Doucouré
Abdoulaye Doucoure has been a key player for Everton ever since he signed for the club from Watford in 2020. However, under Sean Dyche, the midfielder has taken his game to a whole new level. Playing just behind Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Dououre is Everton's biggest goal threat and he has already scored five Premier League goals this season – matching his total for the entire 22/23 season.
Doucoure's combative nature could prove to be problematic for a fragile Chelsea midfield, particularly if Romeo Lavia remains unavailable for selection. He scored the second goal against Newcastle on Thursday night and will fancy his chances again here.
Neither side has managed to string back-to-back wins together against the other since 2019 which illustrates how unpredictable this fixture is. Funnily enough, unpredictable is a word you'd use to describe Chelsea in general this season which makes Goodison Park a dangerous place to go, particularly with Evertons' tails up. We are going for a 2-1 win for Everton with Doucoure to score.
