Chelsea vs Crystal Palace 10 March 2018: EPL Soccer Preview and Predictions

Chelsea will be at home this weekend as they play their next game in the English Premier League. They will be hosting Crystal Palace in a game which both sides will be desperate to win since both teams are desperate to get points.

Chelsea are currently out of the top 4 meaning that they can’t afford to lose. The Blues must make the Champions League next season and to do that, they must get maximum points in the remaining games. This is a game which the manager, the players and the fans will expect to win but in recent history, Crystal Palace has been a hard opponent for the Blues.

Looking at Crystal Palace, they will be desperate to win. The Eagles are in the relegation zone and they must start winning if they wish to avoid relegation. Last weekend the Eagles were very close to beating Manchester United only to be defeated. This weekend they must to better since a loss will make relegation a real possibility. There are rumors that Wilf Zaha might be making his return. If this happens, Crystal Palace will get a massive boost since he is their best player and a danger to any opposition.

Taking everything into consideration, I am going to predict a draw. This is a bold prediction, but I think Crystal Palace are desperate enough to dig deep and get a point. As far as betting is considered, we are getting a great price on this wager. The odds are very long and due to this reason, we should look at a smaller sized bet. If betting on goals is what is desired, the under 2.5 goals is the bet which I will suggest. Crystal Palace will dig deep meaning this game should be low scoring.
