Everton vs Chelsea: Writer Prediction League

With tougher opposition comes tougher decisions...

It’s a lot more fun to make predictions when Everton is playing well.

Last week, we saw a wave of optimism from our writers, with all but one of us predicting double victory for the Toffees — and we were right!

Our optimism is reduced given the slight increase in quality in the club’s upcoming opposition, Chelsea, but relatively speaking, we even appear to feel somewhat positive about Saturday’s match as well.

Before we look ahead though, let’s take one last look at our predictions from last week.

We had a prediction league first this week! For the first time since we launched the prediction league at the start of last season, someone had a perfect week! Congrats to Mike for correctly picking a 1-0 Everton victory over Newcastle, in which Wayne Rooney was both the opening goalscorer and the Everton man of the match.

Against Swansea, we all correctly picked an Everton victory, but had little success elsewhere, given the somewhat abnormal scoreline and Leroy Fer’s opener.

Mike’s big week gives us a different look atop the prediction league table.
