by Adam Clark @efc_adamclark

Everton head to Chelsea on Saturday (12.45pm kick-off) with the chance to close the gap on the top four to just five points, with a game in hand.

Ahead of the game, we take a look at selected odds from the Club's online betting partner, Paddy Power.

Jose Mourinho’s unbeaten Chelsea streak in league games at Stamford Bridge stands at 72 matches and Everton haven’t won in SW6 since 1994. But with Steven Naismith set to be fit and Lacina Traore coming off the back of a debut goal, Paddy Power price the Toffees at 11/2 to win and 3/1 to get a draw.



In the last 50 years Everton have picked up seven victories at Stamford Bridge and all seven have been by a single goal. If you fancy a punt on the Blues to take all three points, the 15/2 for Roberto Martinez’s side to win by a similar margin might appeal. The Toffees are 17/1 to win 1-0 with Paddy Power and 19/1 to win 2-1.



Steven Naismith has four goals in his last five games - or more accurately, four goals in just 277 minutes of football giving the Scot an average of scoring every 70 minutes. Naismith also found the net on his last two encounters with the Londoners and is 10/1 to open the scoring with Paddy Power and 7/2 to score anytime.
