Crystal Palace vs Chelsea: Match Preview and Prediction

Crystal Palace vs Chelsea: In the previous three league games, Crystal Palace allowed 11 goals. Chelsea’s locker room morale increased after Wednesday’s 3-1 triumph over Aston Villa in Birmingham. Chelsea has scored four or more goals in four of its last five matches in all competitions.

Monday night at Selhurst Park will mark the start of Gameweek No. 24, between Crystal Palace and Chelsea. Chelsea will enter the match with a little more confidence. They defeated Aston Villa 3-1 away in the FA Cup fourth round replay on Wednesday, overcoming two heartbreaking league losses.

At Villa Park, Chelsea had a terrific look. They had plenty of opportunities to score against a team that has won nine of their eleven home league games this season. So, Mauricio Pochettino’s team has swiftly moved past a terrible performance from their 2-4 home loss to the Wolves last Saturday.

This might help Chelsea build on their FA Cup win. Crystal Palace hasn’t cut down any trees recently. Injured players plague the Eagles. Chelsea won’t take their top two players. Hodgson’s club has lost three of its last four games overall. Last Saturday, they fell 1-4 against Brighton.

Crystal Palace vs Chelsea: Betting Analysis

In the past, Chelsea has always been the stronger team in this clash. They have defeated the Eagles 13 times in a row coming into today. The rematch took place at Stamford Bridge on Boxing Day, with the Blues winning 2-1. Of the five prior head-to-head meetings between these sides, just two resulted in three goals or more.

Palace enters this match with serious issues on the field in both areas. Their primary two offensive weapons, Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze, will not be available. In the last three Premier League games, they have given up as many as eleven goals. They even gave up two goals in the match two weeks ago at home against Sheffield United.

In their most recent league games, Chelsea’s defense has been anything but thorough. They did, however, manage to put three goals past Aston Villa five days earlier in Birmingham, which helped them gain confidence. At 1.85 odds, we have to choose the away win.

With 1.80 odds, the Over 2.5 Goals FT bet offers excellent value. In each of Palace’s last three games, we have witnessed at least five goals. In the last two league games, Chelsea has allowed four goals in each match. In Wednesday’s FA Cup clash versus Villa, the Blues also scored three goals.
