Chelsea play host to an Everton side with a handy away record this Saturday as the Blues seek to continue their unbeaten run under Guus Hiddink.

The Toffees may sense an opportunity to chalk up back-to-back victories over the reigning Premier League champions having earned at least a point from nine of their previous 10 fixtures on the road.

Roberto Martinez's men are unbeaten in 2016 and will still be full of confidence following their triumph over Manchester City in the League Cup a fortnight ago.

Chelsea appear to have gathered some composure under the guidance of Hiddink, who's steered his side to a win and three draws in the Premier League since returning to west London in late December.

Everton Team News

Roberto Martinez will be forced to work with a depleted squad for the trip to Stamford Bridge.

Tom Cleverly is a doubt for the away side as he's carrying a slight calf injury.

Steven Naismith (ankle), Seamus Coleman (calf), James McCarthy (hip), Tony Hibbert (knee) and Tyias Browning (knee) are all out of action.

Everton Starting XI Prediction

Howard | Stones, Jagielka, Funes Mori, Baines | Basic, Barry | Deulofeu, Barkley, Kone | Lukaku

Score Prediction

The late equaliser we conceded to turn three points into a draw against West Brom on Wednesday is a real kick in the teeth – and the players will no doubt be feeling it, too. Another lapse in concentration has halted our momentum once again and left us just six points above the relegation zone. Hiddink, his squad, and the fans would be in a very different frame of mind going into this clash with Everton had we hung on until the final whistle.

We can expect a determined effort from an Everton side that's looked more confident away from home than in their own backyard so far this campaign. As always, taking three points from the Toffees is a tough ask. Roberto Martinez will likely set up his team to frustrate Chelsea and hit us on the break with players like Gerard Deulofeu, Arouna Kone and the in-form Romelu Lukaku.

Chelsea should attempt to nullify the Toffees' counter attacking by exercising patience in possession while only looking for the killer ball when there's sufficient movement up front – an aspect of our play we've somewhat improved on during recent outings.

I'll go for a 1-1 draw. What are your score predictions?
