Match Preview

Crystal Palace were soundly beaten by Man United  and their last 2 fixtures have seen them concede 9 goals scoring 0. It’s a shocking state of affairs for the club with 0 points, 0 goals and a -17 goal difference after just 7 league games. They are 5 points from safety already and their opposition gets little easier here. They have lost 4 out of the last 5 league games, their only victory coming in the league cup against a poor Huddersfield side. Injuries have played their part with the attacking threats of Loftus-Cheek, Benteke, Zaha and Wickham all out injured. At home they have played 3 lost 3, conceding 6 goals and scoring 0. Chelsea were edged out by Man City at home and they have now slipped 6 points behind the league leaders. The defeat ended a run of 3 consecutive wins, 5 unbeaten. The bigger problem with the defeat was the injury to inform Morata, the influential striker will be missing for this fixture alongside defensive midfielders Kante and Drinkwater. They remain 4th in the league, level on points with Arsenal, 1 behind Spurs. Away from home they have played 3 won 3, the last away league game a convincing win over Stoke. They’ve scored 8 goals in those 3 games with 2 conceded and 1 clean sheet. The defence does not look as sound this year but will find it easier against this Palace side. Chelsea have to be clear favourites with Palace lacking any recognised attacking options. The defence looks in disarray and Chelsea should be able to get a win even without their talisman.
