Chelsea face a tricky trip north on Saturday lunchtime when they take on Everton for the third time this season. Weirdly, we`ll also be coming up against our third Everton manager as well.

A 2-0 victory in the league at Stamford Bridge, back in August, and the Toffees were managed by Ronald Koeman. In October, another home tie in the Carabao Cup resulted in a 2-1 win for the Blues, this time caretaker boss David Unsworth was in charge. In the Everton hot seat now is Sam Allardyce, and Antonio Conte can expect a whole new ball game.

‘Big Sam` has tightened up the defence, and his new team are unbeaten six games since his appointment. That said Chelsea are no pushovers away from home, unless you`re a minor London team.

Chelsea`s away record, matches their home record so far this term, in fact, it`s slightly better, having scored four more goals on their travels. Our two away defeats both came in London, at Crystal Palace and West Ham. Chelsea`s away record in the league is second only, to that of Manchester City.

Played 9
Won 6
Drawn 1
Lost 2

City have won all their away games.

Chelsea have a good record in lunchtime kick offs as well. Our only defeat that West Ham game, there have also been three victories and one draw.

Although, not under Allardyce, Everton`s early kick offs have not been so good. Their four early starts have all ended in defeat.

It may well be a tight game, but Chelsea are in a good position to come away form the blue side of Liverpool with all three points. Please.
