Chelsea’s up and down form gives Crystal Palace a great chance to avenge the 2-1 loss in the reverse fixture. With their home form in good shape, they can at least lay claim to that. Yet, I am stopping short of backing them and putting my money on BTTS.

  • Both teams scored in 10 of Crystal Palace’s last 12 matches (Premier League)
  • Crystal Palace have seen both teams scoring goals in 6 of their last 7 home matches (Premier League)
  • Chelsea have seen BTTS in 5 of their last 6 matches (Premier League)
  • Chelsea have seen both teams score goals in 7 of their last 8 matches (Premier League)

Head to Head


There have been 64 matches between Crystal Palace and Chelsea in all competitions. Of these, Palace have won 12 and lost 37 while the remaining 15 ended in a draw.

The previous match in the season ended in a 2-1 win for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Crystal Palace Form


Crystal Palace are 15th in the Premier League standings after Saturday’s matches. They have 24 points from 23 matches and are five above the relegation zone.

Recent form has been up and down with three losses and two wins over their last five league games. That run culminated in a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Brighton last time out.

Home form is a lot better as Palace are unbeaten across their last three home league games. That included winning their last two against Brentford and Sheffield United.

Crystal Palace Team News


Crystal Palace have a number of injury concerns with Michael Olise, Marc Guehi and Eberechi Eze joining the long-term absentees on the list. That includes Cheick Doucoure, Rob Holding and Jesurun Rak-Sakyi.

Chelsea Form


Chelsea are 11th in the standings after Saturday with 31 points from 23 matches. They can go a point behind ninth-placed Brighton with a win here.

The Blues have a lot of ground to cover though, as they come here on the back of consecutive losses. They lost 4-1 to Liverpool and 4-2 to Wolves, nullifying the advantage of three consecutive wins prior.

The challenges are multi-fold on the road, where Chelsea have been struggling big time lately. They lost five of their last six away league games with only a 3-2 win at Luton being the exception.

Chelsea Team News


Much like their hosts, Chelsea have a long list of unavailable players. The regular absentees Wesley Fofana, Reece James, Marc Cucurella and Trevoh Chalobah underline the list of at least eight players out of this fixture with illness.

Verdict

Crystal Palace will hope they can bank on home form to take advantage of Chelsea’s poor away record. Chelsea on the other hand will hope to punish the Eagles missing some key players.
This points to an interesting game for both teams with goals likely to flow. I am putting my money on both teams finding the net.
