Chelsea faces Crystal Palace on Saturday, October 3rd at Stamford Bridge for an English Premier League match.
Chelsea has started the Premier League season with a 1-1-1 record, as The Blues have not been in the best form recently. Chelsea's Premier League loss came to Liverpool by a 2-0 score, which is no surprise. Chelsea's draw, however, was a 3-3 result with West Bromwich Albion, which is definitely a disappointment for Chelsea, even on the road. Chelsea's most recent match came in the English Carabao Cup where Chelsea was defeated by Tottenham via penalties. Overall, Chelsea has only won two of its last five matches, which is certainly not up to Chelsea's standards. Chelsea sits in ninth place in the Premier League standings, and the club will look for its second win of the season on Saturday at home.
Crystal Palace is actually ahead of Chelsea in the standings currently with a record of 2-0-1. Crystal Palace started the campaign with a 2-0-0 record, but a recent loss to Everton at home by the final score of 2-1 has moved the club back down to earth. Crystal Palace has not played a match since September 26th, therefore Crystal Palace will look to use its extra rest to its advantage. Crystal Palace has looked sharp so far this season, and this club could pull off another surprise if it were able to play Chelsea tight at Stamford Bridge. Crystal Palace is the type of club that could make this match interesting, at least in the first half of play.
The last time Chelsea and Crystal Palace met was on July 7th of 2020. In that match, Chelsea was victorious by the final score of 3-2 on the road. Chelsea has won all five of the last five meetings between itself and Crystal Palace.
Crystal Palace is more than capable of keeping this match tight for a long time, but in the end, I like Chelsea to win this match at home. Chelsea needs the three points here, and I do not think The Blues will mess around in this one. I will take Chelsea against the spread at -1.
