After making progress in the Champions League and also securing back-to-back wins in the Premier League, there is a sense that Chelsea are turning the corner.

Turning The Corner
Everton may have picked up a win at Goodison Park in their last league outing, but it is their form on the road which is the biggest concern at present.
Travelling Is Tough
What a difference a couple of weeks has made for Graham Potter at Stamford Bridge. After Chelsea’s first leg loss at Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League Round of 16, the knives were seemingly sharpened for his managerial execution.
Fast forward to the second leg victory at home and progress to the last eight has subsequently made. Reason to be cheerful for the Blues’ unforgiving fan base, a reason to be gleeful for manager Potter and his players.
Add Premier League wins over Leeds and Leicester and suddenly Chelsea’s season has a spring in it once again. Exactly what is needed with the spring portion of the campaign now getting underway.
They say that March is usually defined as the business end of the season and now it is time to truly get down to business. Outright success in this season’s Champions League may be a stretch, but securing some form of European football in September is now back on the agenda.
With Brighton, Brentford, and Fulham all within touching distance, there is certainly the personnel available to record the necessary run of positive results. A run that they will look to continue when Everton visit on Saturday.
The Toffees start the weekend lying 15th in the table and although that sounds like a relatively comfortable position for Sean Dyche’s men, there is only one point separating themselves and Bournemouth in 18th.
While the Goodison Park outfit are currently outside of the bottom three by virtue of their win over Brentford. One that not many would have predicted before last weekend, but the result displayed that Dyche is beginning to build a fort on Merseyside.
Now he must hope that his players can begin to convert that form to appearances on the road. There was an inkling of this happening during the 2-2 draw at Nottingham Forest, a similar outcome would be well received by all connected with Everton.
This season’s relegation battle is arguably the most brutal it has ever been. It only needs two successive defeats to suck you straight back into the quagmire and Toffees will need to make sure the first of those is not lurking just around the corner.
With that in mind, our latest bet builder is now up for grabs, and it looks like this:
- Kai Havertz to score anytime
- Under 3 total goals
- Half time draw/full time Chelsea win
For my latest bet builder offering, I have placed the focus on Kai Havertz. The German forward was certainly out of sorts in the early stages of the campaign but is now approaching something of a purple patch.
A goal for the former Bayer Leverkusen starlet but no more than two in total, as Chelsea eventually break Everton’s resistance. Resistance that comes in the shape of a half time draw and full time home win and all three picks combined are priced at a whopping 22/1.
