Crystal Palace vs Chelsea 
England – Premier League 
Date: Saturday, 1 October 2022 
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET 
Venue: Selhurst Park. 

Former English and European champions Chelsea are yet to find form in the league this season, and will be desperate to do so this Saturday. Crystal Palace are going through a rather poor stretch of performances and will be the underdogs against the Blues. 

Palace are placed 16th in a table of 20, and so far managed just one win in the whole competition. This sole victory came against the struggling Aston Villa. 

Going on, Palace continuously failed to deliver good defensive performances all through the campaign, and even so in front of their home crowd. 

In fact, seldom have they kept clean sheets at their home in the whole of 2022. 

Meanwhile, the Blues are set with their new manager, and will be eager to make amends for the points they dropped earlier in the season. 

Moreover, they are still placed seventh in the table, and lost just two times through the campaign. They also consistently found the back of the net despite their rather unimpressive results. 

And now armed with a new coach and new tactics, they will be even more dangerous. 

Importantly, they also have a good h2h record against this rival over the years, and by the looks of things, it is expected that we are about to witness a win by Chelsea this weekend.

Crystal Palace vs Chelsea Prediction & Analysis 

Newcastle are on a three-game winless run, and they let in four goals in one of these matches. Note that they were also winless in five of their past seven fixtures. 

Furthermore, they won just once at home in the whole of the tournament, as well as this season. 

On the other hand, Chelsea were unbeaten in 14 of their past 18 overall games, and in the process they went on a three-match losing streak, as well as another two-game winning run. 

On top of that, they also fared quite well in past h2h clashes against this rival. 

Likely, expect a victory for Chelsea this weekend.
