There is little to separate Chelsea and Crystal Palace in the Premier League standings, with both sitting in the middle of the table coming into this matchup. Chelsea built confidence in midweek following a 3-1 success in the FA Cup against Aston Villa, but they have lost each of their last two in the league.
Crystal Palace will still need points in their battle to avoid the drop, as the Eagles sit just five clear of the relegation zone. They come into this showdown after losing three of their last five, and they were easily swatted aside by their local rivals Brighton in their most recent match in the Premier League.
Palace’s record against the Blues is extremely poor, as they have lost each of their last 12 in the Premier League. That is the longest losing run that the Eagles have endured against a single opponent, while Chelsea could record 13 straight victories against one team for the first time in their top-flight history on Monday.
However, Palace have landed victories in each of their last two home matches, scoring three goals in each fixture. However, they haven’t won three on the bounce at Selhurst Park since October 2022. Meanwhile, Chelsea have conceded four goals in each of their last two league defeats, but they haven’t conceded that amount of goals in three straight league fixtures since December 1989.
Crystal Palace vs Chelsea Prediction
Chelsea produced their best display of the season in midweek to overcome Aston Villa, and that newfound confidence could be key for this showdown. Therefore, we will be siding with the Blues winning maximum points at Selhurst Park.
