Crystal Palace vs Chelsea Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Tuesday, 7 July 2020. Kick-off 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET at the Selhurst Park.
The Blues have a major opportunity coming up, to make a pass at the third spot. As of now, they are placed fourth in the table, trailing a single point behind Leicester. However, the Foxes are taking on the determined Gunners, while Frank Lampard’s men are taking on the struggling Eagles.
In fact, Roy Hodgson’s men are on a three-game losing run in the league, and they seem content with just staying safe for another campaign, rather than going after the European spots.
Moreover, The Blues also do have an impressive h2h record against this opponent over the years. Considering all these, expect a winning performance from Chelsea this Tuesday.

Crystal Palace vs Chelsea: Prediction
The Eagles lost 3-0 on the road the last match-day, against Leicester. While the first half was relatively silent, the hosts exploded in the next 45 minutes. Jamie Vardy especially was in a mood to kill towards the end of the fixture, as he banged in two late goals.
In the meantime, the Blues registered a 3-0 victory at home the last match-day, against Watford. Despite the guests being desperate for points, Lampard’s men were able to deliver a win to nil.
As things stand, the 2016-17 PL champions are the favorites. They are one of the best teams in the league, and are going after a podium spot. This Tuesday will be the best opportunity for it, as they are taking on a weak squad, while their competitors Leicester are pitted against Arsenal.
Moreover, the Blues had won seven of their past eight overall fixtures, and have lost just once on the road in the past six months. On the other hand, the Eagles are on a three-game losing run, and have a combined scoreline of 0-8 in the process.
At home, they had lost three of their past five appearances. Going on, they are also on a four-fixture losing run in h2h clashes, and have lost eight of the previous ten such games at this venue.
Taking into account these observations, expect a win for Chelsea this Tuesday.
