David Moyes will be hoping to end his Everton spell with a victory over the fantastic hosts at the Stamford Bridge but the new Europa League champs will have other ideas
Newly crowned Europa League champions, Chelsea, will seek to end their domestic campaign on a high note when they face sixth-placed Everton in their last game of the season on Sunday.
It will certainly be an afternoon of farewells at the Stamford Bridge as David Moyes and Rafael Benitez will be bidding these clubs goodbye after the match.
Moyes will take over the managerial role at Manchester United after he was picked to replace retiring Sir Alex Ferguson. Baring this in mind, the Scot will hope to sign out on a winning note.
The Blues have already booked a place in next season’s Champions League but will be gunning for a win to ensure they finish as the third best team in the EPL. Ladbrokes is backing the Benitez men to cruise home to victory at staggering odds of 4/6 (1.66).
For David Moyes' team that has never defeated the Roman Army at the Stamford Bridge in 13 attempts in all competitions, picking the maximum points in this tie is a 4/1 (5.00) play. The same firm prices the draw at 11/4 (3.75), and should this happen, it will be the 16th draw for Everton which will be their highest number of stalemates in a season.
Everton are guaranteed a sixth-placed finish in the Premier League and will finish above rivals Liverpool for the second successive season - the first time they’ve done so in over 50 years. In view of this, backing them to win with over 0.5 goals is worthwhile at 4/9 (1.44).
For those looking for more value, the goalscoring market is worth betting on. Demba Ba can be backed at 9/2 (5.5) to net first, while his strike partner, Fernando Torres is a 5/2 (3.5) shot to start the goal feast.
