Crystal Palace and Chelsea face off on Saturday in an English Premier League showdown at Selhurst Park Stadium. When these two teams faced off in August of 2021 it was Chelsea that was able to secure the 3-0 victory.
Crystal Palace currently sits in 13th place in the standings having picked up 26 points. Crystal Palace has played to a draw in each of the last two games. In the last game against Brentford they had six shots on three shots on target, but they couldn’t find the back of the net. Crystal Palace has scored 32 goals total while their defense has given up 35 goals total. Conor Gallagher has been the top player for Crystal Palace scoring seven goals and adding three assists. There are four different players that have scored at least four goals. The offense hasn’t been as strong as of late, and they need the offense to be better in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is Chelsea who currently sits in 3rd place in the standings having picked up 47 points. Chelsea has won their last four games across all contests. The last Premier League game was all the way back on January 23rd and they were able to beat Tottenham 2-0. Chelsea has scored 48 goals total while their defense has given up 18 goals. This is a strong offense, and they are going to need to continue that strong offense. Mason Mount has been the top player for Chelsea scoring seven goals and adding six assists.
Chelsea is the better team, they are going to have no issue running up the score. I expect Chelsea is going to score at least two goals. Crystal Palace also has an offense that is going to find a goal or two also. I expect 3 or 4 goals, and the over is going to cash.
