The Blues are in fine form and our tipster is backing Antonio Conte's charges to get amongst the goals when Ronald Koeman's side visit Stamford Bridge on Saturday night
Chelsea can continue their run of fine form in the Premier League when they play host to Everton at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.
The Blues enjoyed a solid start to the season, but back-to-back league defeats against Liverpool and Arsenal respectively saw some observers question whether Antonio Conte's side were capable of mounting a challenge for the top-flight title this season.
The Blues have bounced back from those setbacks, however, and having recorded four successive league wins - without conceding a goal - Chelsea should certainly be considered as credible contenders this term.
The Londoners have now scored 11 Premier League goals without reply and, brimming with belief, it is little surprise to see the Blues as short as 4/7 (1.57) with Paddy Power to continue their winning run against the Toffees.
Ronald Koeman's side were unbeaten in their first six fixtures this term but their form has dipped since then and, although the men from Merseyside ended a five-match streak without a win by beating West Ham United at Goodison Park last weekend, away defeats against both AFC Bournemouth and Burnley will have done little for morale.
Indeed, the Toffees have failed to win nine of their last 11 Premier League matches on the road and Koeman's charges are chalked up as a 9/2 (5.50) chance to buck the trend against the Blues, while there is 31/10 (4.10) that this match ends in stalemate.
Confidence is coursing through the veins of Conte's key men; Spain striker Diego Costa is in fine form, having notched eight Premier League goals so far this season, while midfielder Eden Hazard has hit five goals in his last five starts for club and country.
Defensive discipline, too, has been a cornerstone of the Blues' recent resurgence and punters may well be tempted to back the 9/5 (2.80) for Chelsea to win without conceding for a fifth successive match in the Premier League.
Everton, though, have an in-form front man of their own; Romelu Lukaku has scored seven Premier League goals this term, with the big Belgian's latest strike coming in last weekend's win against West Ham, while the Toffees have found the target in all but one of their last 11 top-flight tussles.
Koeman's men, therefore, are capable of getting amongst the goals themselves and the odds compilers offer just 4/6 (1.67) that both teams are on target in west London.
Better value, though, lies in backing Chelsea to score more than two goals at 2/1 (3.0) with Paddy Power; the selection would have seen punters profit in each of the Blues' last four home wins, while Everton have managed just one clean sheet in their last eight Premier League matches away from home.
