Live Betting: Everton v. Chelsea

Everton v. Chelsea, 3pm BST Saturday.

Gareth Barry says he is fit and ready to make his Everton debut against Chelsea on Saturday despite his lack of match practice this season. The 32-year-old midfielder moved over to the Toffees at the last minute on transfer deadline day after being told he was no longer required at Manchester City.

One Everton player who won't appear on Saturday is Romelu Lukaku, who is forbidden for playing against parent club Chelsea as part of his lone agreement. Lukaku, who Everton signed on loan from Chelsea for the season, told the Daily Mirror this week that he wants Everton to win on Saturday.

Everton have made a so-so start to season 2013-14, drawing all of their first three games for a total of three points. Chelsea, on the other hand, have embraced their pre-season title favouritism and are sitting in second place with seven points from their three games - just two points off the pace from surprise league leaders Liverpool.

William Hill Sports is offering the following pre-match betting odds: Everton, 11/5, draw 23/10, Chelsea 5/4. The headline offers are: Mirallas to score and Everton to win, for which it is paying 8/1; or Eden Hazzard to score in a Chelsea victory, 6/1.

Hill customers can access advanced stats on Everton-Chelsea and other games through the sportsbook's Opta Facts page. According to the page, Chelsea have won just two of their last 10 Premier League trips to Merseyside (W2 D2 L6). And if the match ends in a draw, Everton will become just the fourth EPL team to draw their opening four to the season.

As usual, Hill offer Everton-Chelsea live betting. In fact, customers can place in-play wagers on all seven Premier League matches this Saturday. Other big matches are: Manchester United v. Crystal Palace, Stoke City v. Manchester City, and Aston Villa v. Newcastle United.
