Preview Crystal Palace vs Chelsea

GRAHAM POTTER officiated his first league game as Chelsea boss with the London derby but it was a tough encounter against a Crystal Palace side who specialize in making life difficult for the big teams.

The former Brighton boss was given an indication of how difficult it would be to form a team of superstars into title challengers in his opening game which ended in a 1-1 draw against Red Bull Salzburg in the Champions League at Stamford Bridge.

Their frail league form had seen Thomas Tuchel lose his job in the end and Potter would not be under the illusion of going to places like Croydon Street are places the owners didn’t expect to see the points drop.

But few clubs enjoy toe-to-toe battles like the Eagles and their manager Patrick Vieira.

This season, they drew with Liverpool, winning two goals at Manchester City before losing and qualifying with a goalless draw at Newcastle United in their last game.

Troubles for Palace so far have turned that performance into a win – they have only managed once in the league, though that can be overcome by the fact that they had a tough opening set.

Head to head terbaru

The Coubs met three times last season in the league and FA Cup and Chelsea won all three games without conceding a goal.

In fact, since Palace’s 2017 win at Selhurst Park, Chelsea have won ten in a row.

Player to watch

Jean-Philippe Mateta is likely to lead the line for the hosts and the French striker will be keen to impress after scoring just one goal this season.

Kai Havertz made a big impact in midweek when he scored twice at Wembley in a 3-3 Nations League draw against relegated England for Germany.

Crystal Palace vs Chelsea Team News

Nathan Ferguson remained sidelined for several weeks.

Jack Butland may still be suffering from a hand injury.

James McArthur and James Tomkins also continue to be sidelined.

Expect an unchanged XI from the 0-0 draw with Newcastle.

Edouard Mendy can return after being present in training for a week.

N’Golo Kante suffered a hamstring injury and consequently missed International Duty.

Christian Pulisic did have a knock on International Duty, but it wasn’t anything big.

Crystal Palace vs Chelsea Facts

There have been over 2.5 goals scored in Chelsea’s last 5 matches (Premier League).

There have been under 2.5 goals scored in 5 of Crystal Palace’s last 6 home games (Premier League).

Crystal Palace vs Chelsea Prediction

Crystal Palace are looking to put in performances against the bigger league sides, including a draw vs Liverpool and a two-time lead vs Man City this season. It is expected that they will put on a similar display in front of the home crowd on Saturday, as they seek a first win in the league, since nearing the end of August.

Chelsea are just three points off the top four, but will be desperate to stay close, with a win, especially in Graham Potter’s first game in charge in the league.

The Blues are also yet to reach two consecutive wins in the league this season.

With a squad almost fully fit, hope Chelsea go home with a win, but of course it won’t be easy for them.
