Chelsea Prediction – Can Chelsea move into 2nd spot?

A highly eventful and entertaining evening was had on Wednesday night when Chelsea drew 4-4 with Dutch side, Ajax, as The Blues came from 4-1 behind to snatch a point at Stamford Bridge in a match that included two penalties and two own goals as well!

Goals continue to feature when Chelsea play and this recent Champions League fixture was no exception as the trend of goals continued on from the previous matches this season which has seen 13 of Chelsea’s 18 matches in all competitions to date, resulting in over 2.5 goals.

Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, seems to have encouraged a more attacking and free Chelsea this term and so far the results have been encouraging despite their opening day 4-0 thrashing at Manchester United (but even then, the goals flowed!)

The hosts have won their last 5 matches on the trot in the Premier League and have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 10 matches overall in the top flight, of which 7 of these last 10 matches saw over 2.5 goals scored.

Another win in this clash against Crystal Palace would see Chelsea move into 2nd spot albeit perhaps on a temporary basis.

Crystal Palace Prediction – Can Crystal Palace return to winning ways?

There’s also a fairly enticing carrot being dangled in front of Crystal Palace ahead of this lunchtime encounter at Stamford Bridge as all three points for Roy Hodgson’s side would see The Eagles soar up into 5th place on the Premier League ladder prior to this weekend’s action.

However, whether Crystal Palace can take advantage of this is another matter entirely, and they’ll be up against an in-form and free-scoring Chelsea outfit as well as having to end a 3-match sequence without a win in the top flight.

Defeats to Manchester City and Leicester City (both at Selhurst Park) have been either side of a 2-2 draw away at Arsenal, but 7 points collected from their travels to date courtesy of wins at Manchester United 2-1 and West Ham 2-1 along with the point at Arsenal in that aforementioned 2-2 draw, show that Crystal Palace are a threat on the road.

The visitors are also capable of scoring and conceding goals too away from home as 10 of their last 15 matches on their travels have resulted in over 2.5 goals.


Key-Facts – Chelsea vs Crystal Palace

  • 13 of Chelsea’s 18 matches in all competitions have resulted in over 2.5 goals
  • 10 of Crystal Palace’s last 15 away matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals
  • 4 of the last 5 meetings between these two sides have seen over 2.5 goals


Betting Tips Verdict

All roads therefore seem to point towards goals in this clash with both teams eager to move further up the table with a win here.
