Odds: 2

Crystal Palace

Chelsea have won six of their last seven Premier League home games. In seven out of ten past home games of the “pensioners” in the Premier League, the bet “both will score - no” was played. Crystal Palace have lost four of their five past away matches in the Premier League. In seven of the ten previous official away matches of the Eagles in the Premier League, they played the bet "both will score - no." Chelsea have beaten Crystal Palace in all five of their past head-to-head matches. Last season, the Blues defeated the Eagles (3:2) and (2:0). In four of their last five home games Chelsea have played against Crystal Palace over 2.5 total.


Chelsea went through a whole range of emotions in their first five games of the season. The Pensioners looked great when they beat Brighton (3-1) and Barnsley (6-0). However, the Blues' mood was bleak after the home defeat to Liverpool (0-2), the draw at West Brom (3-3) and the relegation from the League Cup to Tottenham. Spurs beat Frank Lampard's team on penalties.

Considering that Chelsea have almost completely renewed their roster, it is somehow silly to demand that the team fulfill high goals. However, the start for the "pensioners" definitely did not go well. Chelsea are five points behind the Premier League leaders, in ninth place.

Note that at home in the Premier League, the Blues won six matches in a row before losing to Liverpool. Moreover, the “pensioners” only from Tottenham and Manchester City conceded them.

Billy Gilmore and Marcos Alonso will not play in the upcoming match. Ross Barkley has joined Aston Villa on loan. The participation of Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech is questionable.

Crystal Palace

Despite the virtual absence of significant reinforcements, Crystal Palace started this season well. The Eagles beat Southampton in the first round (1:0), whereas in the second they sorted things out on the road with Manchester United (3:1), having gained the scalp of the first top team in the new championship. Failures befell the team in the third round of the League Cup, where Crystal Palace lost on penalties to Bournemouth and in the last round of the championship, in which the Glaziers lost at home to Everton (1:2).

With six points Crystal Palace is in sixth place, just three points behind the leaders.

Last season, Crystal Palace played quite well away for the time being. Also, Roy Hodgson's wards periodically selected points for the representatives of the top six. True, the favorite client of the Eagles is Manchester City.

The statistics of guest meetings prior to this tour are not in favor of Crystal Palace. Hodgson's team lost four consecutive away matches in the Premier League before defeating Manchester United without scoring a single goal.

Five players are injured at Crystal Palace: Connor Wickham, Nathan Ferguson, Patrick van Anholt, Gary Cahill and Scott Dunn. Misha Batshuaya, who is on loan from the Blues, will not be able to play against Chelsea.


All in all, there is a lot in this match in favor of Chelsea. Frank Lampard's players are pissed off after a series of failures and Chelsea are playing well at home. However, Crystal Palace also looks good at the start of the season and traditionally likes to spoil the mood of the favorites. The only thing you can't argue with is the statistics of personal meetings. It is completely on the side of the owners. Considering results of head-to-head matches and the current form of the teams, here you can bet on a productive match.
