The qualified in the Champions league with 2 games remaining, meaning Tuesday night’s draw with Krasnodar was a dead rubber fixture that afforded Lampard the opportunity to rest his key players ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash.

Having analysed the above information, our tip for this Premier League prediction weekend is to back a Chelsea win on Saturday.
Carlo Ancelotti may know Lampard and Chelsea quite well, but Everton’s slump in form is completely juxtaposed to Chelsea’s rise. Therefore a result for the Toffees looks almost impossible, despite a return for their fans. However, despite the Toffees’ recent dip in form, they have still scored in all but 2 of their games in all competitions so far this season. Even with Chelsea’s recently improved defensive record, Everton’s attacking talent, such as James and Calvert-Lewin should manage to find the net. Ultimately though, the West London side should have too much for Merseyside outfit to handle over the 90 minutes. That’s why our betting tip for this Saturday’s fixture is to back a Chelsea win with both teams to get on the scoresheet at odds of 3.2 with Bet365. Potential scorers for Chelsea include Werner, Havertz and Giroud.
