Chelsea will be hosting Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge for the next round of matches in the English Premier League.
Crystal Palace played exceptionally well in their last fixture as they ended Arsenal’s winning streak by getting a 2-2 draw against the Gunners at Selhurst Park. Wilfried Zaha played exceptionally well as his pace and control caused big problems for the Arsenal defenders. As it currently stands, Crystal Palace are 14th on the Premier League ladder and they will need to improve their form if they wish to remain clear of the relegation zone. This is expected to be a very tough match for Crystal Palace as they are away from home and playing one the best teams in the competition.
On the other side of the coin, Chelsea had a big win in their last match as they beat Burnley 4-0 away from home. It has been hard for any team to defend against Chelsea as they have scored 9 goals in their last 3 Premier League fixtures. With Crystal Palace having defensive issues at the moment, Chelsea will be eyeing many goals. As far as the Chelsea defense is concerned, they will need to deal with Zaha who may cause problems to the likes of David Luiz who will struggle to deal with his pace. That being said, Chelsea should feel that they will be good enough to outscore Zaha and the other Crystal Palace strikers.
This should be a very high scoring game as Crystal Palace have plenty of goal scoring threat while Chelsea should have a field day against the Palace defense. As far as the result is concerned, it is hard to look at any option other than a win for Chelsea. The Blues are the stronger side and they will also be playing at home. I am expecting Palace to cause some problems but Chelsea should still win.
