We host Everton at Stamford Bridge on Thursday evening hoping to extend our unbeaten Premier League run against the Toffees. Here we bring you all the vital statistics ahead of kick-off.

Chelsea vs Everton head to head

The Toffees' run of 26 games without a win is their longest away at another club in the Premier League. Only against Leeds (35 between 1946 and 2001) have they had a longer away run without a win in top-flight history.

Everton have won three of their last five Premier League games against Chelsea, all of them coming at Goodison Park.

The last occasion Everton came away from the Bridge with a league win was in November 1994, when Glenn Hoddle was Chelsea manager. Paul Rideout notched the only goal for the Toffees who were in the bottom three at the time.

Chelsea stats

Of all the teams to play more than one Premier League game on a Thursday, Chelsea have the best win rate on this day in the competition, winning seven of our 11 games (64 per cent).

Thomas Tuchel’s side have scored four Premier League goals in the 90th minute or later this season, more than any other side in this season's competition.

These are our last 10 goals in all competitions scored from the 85th minute up to and including stoppage time that has resulted in us drawing or winning the game:

Everton’s win against Arsenal last week ended an eight game winless run in the Premier League including six defeats.

Everton are winless in six away league games (one draw, five defeats), losing their last four. The Toffees last lost five in a row on the road in the Premier League in March 2018.

They have won five points from a possible 24 on the road this season. Their only win came in August at Brighton.

Everton haven’t won any of their last 12 matches against reigning European champions. They lost both games against Chelsea the last time we were champions of Europe in 2012/13.

Everton are unbeaten in their last five Premier League games played on a Thursday (two wins, three draws).

Everton have lost their past four away games in the league. This is the first time Rafael Benitez has suffered four consecutive away defeats in the competition since November 2006 while in charge of Liverpool (a run of five).

Benitez has lost 13 of his last 18 Premier League away games against London sides.

There are no suspensions

Reece James needs to avoid a booking against Everton, Wolves and Aston Villa to escape a one match Premier League suspension for accumulating five yellow cards.

In the Premier League, five yellow cards received before 19 league fixtures have been played will result in a one-match-suspension in the competition.
