Chelsea favourites to stay third on table as Everton hope to give Moyes winning send-off

Chelsea are a top priced 1.7 with BetVictor and William Hill to win their last game of the season against Everton at Stamford Bridge and look worthy odds-on shots to get the job done.

The stats reveal that six of the last 12 league meetings between these two sides have ended in a draw, with both sides securing three wins apiece.

However Everton have won only one of their previous 20 Premier League trips to the Bridge, and since the start of 2009-10 the Toffees have won only three of their 20 top flight away games in London (D11, L6).

Throw in the fact that Chelsea are unbeaten in their seven league matches (W5 D2) and know that victory will guarantee them a third place finish you can see why they are odds-on to win this despite the fact that the visitors will be desperate to give David Moyes a winning send-off in his last game as manager.

Frank Lampard became the highest goalscorer in the history of the club (203) with his brace against Aston Villa, and looks decent value at 7 with Coral and Stan James in the first scorer market.

He has been absolutely outstanding all season, and the standout 3 on offer with Stan James about him netting anytime looks huge given that he is as short as 2.25 in a place.

The last three meetings in the league between the two sides have seen nine goals netted (average of 3), so backing over 2.5 in this encounter also makes plenty of appeal at 1.73 with BetVictor.

In the correct score market I am going to suggest a small punt on Chelsea winning 3-1 – the same as when they last met in the league at Stamford Bridge. That outcome is chalked up at a best of 15 with Stan James.
