Everton will pose big threat to Thomas Tuchel's unbeaten Chelsea record on Monday, while Man City look set to bounce back in midweek.

It's been all smiles for Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel so far and Everton are looking to change that.

Everton’s fine away record suggests they can take something away from Stamford Bridge when they travel to face Chelsea on Monday.

Chelsea have strung together an extremely impressive 10-game unbeaten streak across all competitions since Tuchel took charge in January.

With nine of those results coming in the Premier League, Chelsea have put themselves firmly back in the mix for a top-four spot.

Tuchel’s Unbeaten Record Under Threat

The Blues kick off Monday’s clash at Stamford Bridge sitting fourth with a one-point advantage over fifth-placed Everton, who have a game in hand.

The Toffees head to the capital with plenty of momentum after winning each of their last three outings and boast a very strong record on the road.

The Toffees have claimed 29 of their 46 points away from Goodison Park this campaign and are unbeaten in nine on their travels, winning seven during that sequence.

Carlo Ancelotti

Carlo Ancelotti’s men have already won at third-placed Leicester and drawn at Manchester United, who sit second, and they look very tempting at 11/2 to pick up a win.

But Chelsea are no pushovers and it might be worth backing the Toffees at 31/20 in the double chance market on Monday.

Goals on the Cards at London Stadium

Monday’s 20:00 engagement looks set to be a hugely exciting affair when West Ham welcome Leeds to the London Stadium.

David Moyes has West Ham in the hunt for a European berth while Leeds are hoping to claim a top-10 finish in their first season back in the Premier League.

Both clubs have played attractive, attacking football this term and that should lead to a wide-open match.

Picking a winner when Leeds are involved has been tricky throughout the season, drawing just twice, they are very much an all-or-nothing side.

So delving into the over-under market looks the way to go in this one.

West Ham and Leeds sit first and second respectively in the over 2.5 goals standings and that outcome can be backed at 20/29.

At least three goals have been scored in 17 of West Ham’s 26 outings, while that has also been true in 16 of Leeds’ 26 fixtures.

Over 3.5 goals, which is available at 33/20, is also worth considering due to the Whites’ terrible defensive record.

Only bottom pair Sheffield United and West Brom have conceded more goals than Marcelo Bielsa’s men.

City to Bounce Back in Style

Manchester City’s 21-game winning streak came to an end at the hands of cross-city rivals Manchester United on Sunday, going down 2-0 at the Etihad.

That loss has merely delayed the inevitable as City still remain 11 points clear at the top of the table with 10 games left to play.

It was City’s first home league defeat since the 5-2 thrashing at the hands of Leicester on September 27 and they haven’t lost back-to-back home league games since February 2016.

Wednesday’s meeting with Southampton, scheduled for a 18:00 kick off, should offer the perfect opportunity to get back to winning ways.

Southampton ended a nine-match winless streak in the league when defeating Sheffield United on Saturday but backing that result up looks unlikely.

Sergio Aguero celebrates scoring a goal for Manchester City

Finding the value in this clash is difficult but City, who may restore Sergio Aguero to the starting line-up, will be looking to make a statement and a high-scoring victory could be on the cards.

City -2 on the Asian Handicap can be backed at 21/20 and that has landed in four of City’s home encounters this term.

It’s also worth noting that City are the highest scorers in the division and boast the best defensive record.
