Preview | October 1

Crystal Palace-Chelsea

Palace meet Chelsea at Selhurst Park.

After a share of the points against Newcastle in their last Premier League match, Palace hope to improve their form against a Chelsea squad coming off a 2-1 victory over West Ham. A game against the Blues won't provide the solace the Eagles are looking for. They were beaten 0-1 the last time the teams met in the league. The larger history hasn't been kind to Palace either. They have only mustered four Premier League wins against Chelsea in their last twenty-six tries.

Palace | DDLWD | 16th | Top Scorer: W. Zaha (4)

Palace are winless in their last 3 matches and will look to stop the rot in this match. They've been average with regards to goal scoring as their average xG (expected goals) of 1.3 ranks 10th in the league. They'll look to Wilfried Zaha to regalvanize the team. He's has the most efforts on goal for Palace with 15 total shots this season (16th in the EPL). Eberechi Eze is one more player to keep an eye on. He has been a top distributor all season for them with 13 passes into the box (16th in the EPL).

Chelsea | WLWLD | 7th | Top Scorer: R. Sterling (3)

Chelsea currently sit 7th in the table and they'll look to pick up more points in this match. They've been middle of the road in terms of goals scored and their average xG (expected goals) of 1.2 ranks 12th in the league. Raheem Sterling has been their top shot-taker this season with 11 shots (30th in the EPL). For opportunities at goal, Reece James stands out. He has been a top distributor this season for them with 12 passes into the box over the year (18th in the EPL).

Prediction: Palace 1-4 Chelsea

All things considered, it looks possible that Chelsea could turn up and run riot here unless Palace can come out the gates fast.

Did you know? A 4-0 hammering by Chelsea in 2020 is the biggest victory for either team in the Premier League history of this matchup.

Can Palace go one better than their recent draws? Will Chelsea gain more momentum in the next match? PokerStars Sports has hundreds of markets, so you can find your perfect bet on the big match.
