Team News

Crystal Palace
Chelsea
  • Crystal Palace have been rocked by injuries this week, with Michael Olise, Marc Guehi and Eberechi Eze set to face a spell on the sidelines.
  • The trio join the likes of Cheick Doucoure, Rob Holding and Jesurun Rak-Sakyi in the treatment room.
  • Chelsea remain without no fewer than eight players through injury.
  • Mauricio Pochettino should see no reason to make any changes to the starting XI from the win at Aston Villa in the FA Cup.

Prediction

  • Crystal Palace's dismal season continued with a 4-1 defeat against rivals Brighton last weekend, a result that many thought would lead to Roy Hodgson losing his job, but he remains in charge for now.
  • The hosts are unbeaten in their last four home matches.
  • All the signs pointed towards Chelsea being in complete turmoil after last weekend's 4-2 home defeat to Wolves, but the Blues put in perhaps their strongest performance of the season at Villa Park in midweek to win 3-1.
  • The Blues, though, have lost five of their last six away matches in the Premier League.

  • I'm not happy despite win, because idiot Pochettino will not be sacked tomorrow.

  • Silva has been a humble yet responsible leader even without the captain's band...overall, I guess it's time to bid him goodbye and hope Colwill, Desasi and others step up!! Up Blues!!!����

  • It's a good thing Crystal Palace always lose to Chelsea, so idiot Pochettino can actually win a game.

  • Palmer +185 To Score Anytime
