Stan Collymore predicts Everton v Chelsea clash
By Dominic Toner
Stan Collymore has predicted Everton to lose when they welcome current Premier League leaders Chelsea on Sunday.
The Toffees host the Blues and will be looking to continue their good season, which has helped them up to seventh in the table as they near a return to European football.
Ronald Koeman’s side have particularly excelled in their home matches and won their last eight consecutive league matches at Goodison Park.
However, they face up against a Chelsea side that are competing for the league title and have been a formidable outfit this season.
Antonio Conte’s team are four points clear at the top of the table and
Collymore has predicted Everton to suffer a narrow defeat and tipped a 3-2 scoreline in Chelsea’s favour, as cited by his personal Twitter account.

Everton are enjoying a great first season under Ronald Koeman and he has managed to introduced some great young talents to the first team.
Meanwhile, 25-goal striker Romelu Lukaku has been in sensational form and will want to prove a point against his former side Chelsea at the weekend.
The Merseyside club have dominated games at home and a 4-0 dismantling of Manchester City was a particularly big result.
