Chelsea vs Crystal Palace by Rahul

The Champions-Elect Chelsea will entertain Crystal Palace in front of their home fans looking to build on their 10 point advantage in the Premier League. Their home record has been outstanding just the solitary loss coming against Liverpool from 13 home games, with all other landing up in victories. They have scored 36 goals while conceding just 8 in front of the home fans, and they will look to take the attack to a weak Crystal Palace defense in this encounter. Chelsea will rely on the likes of Hazard, Costa, Pedro, Fabregas who have all been in good form. Hazard and Costa are slight doubts, but the rest through the international break should do them good. Defensively, they should have no concerns with defense as Luiz, Azpilicueta and Cahill look quite solid at the back for them.


Crystal Palace will feel as though lightening struck on them with 3 straight games as they managed to win 3 games on the trot and all of them happened to land as clean sheets. The fact that must be noted is that that goals came against 3 teams who have terrible offensive lines in Watford, West Brom and Middlesbrough. Palace will look to this game after the international break where many of their players didn't make any trips; to be something to hold the squad together for a few extra training sessions to try and get the rhythm in. Things will be difficult when they travell away to Chelsea where the home side has won 10 out of their 13 victories by a 2 goal margin. Palace now come into a big stretch of games now where they have to play Chelsea, Southampton, Leicester, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham, Man City and Man United in their remaining games. Things don't look to bright for them as they look to survive, but facing the Champions in buoyant mood might not be something that they will look forward to.


I expect Chelsea to continue their dominant home form in this game and continue to win; but I expect them to win by a 2 goal margin which they have done on 77% of their home games so far. Chelsea to win by asian handicap of -1.5.
