Crystal Palace v Chelsea Betting

Chelsea have let in goals in their last 10 matches away from home, while Crystal Palace have conceded 11 goals in their recent trio of matches. The Blues have had both teams scoring in four out of their last five matches, and a similar pattern has been observed in four of Palace’s last five home games.

Pressure mounts at Crystal Palace following a challenging weekend, marked by a 4-1 loss to rivals Brighton, sparking protests from the fans against manager Roy Hodgson and the club’s hierarchy. The choice to play Michael Olise, only to lose him to injury, has further fueled discontent.

The Eagles now face a Chelsea team buoyed by a significant victory, amidst a backdrop of losing three out of their last four matches. Meanwhile, Chelsea, under Mauricio Pochettino, found some relief with a 3-1 FA Cup replay win against Aston Villa, a team eyeing a Champions League spot. This victory was crucial for Chelsea, especially after suffering defeats in their previous matches and struggling to maintain a clean sheet in their recent away games.

As Crystal Palace and Chelsea prepare to clash, the spotlight falls on their defensive frailties, with a staggering 79 goals conceded between them this season. The expectation of both teams scoring is high, given their defensive records and recent performances at Selhurst Park.

Considering the defensive struggles of both teams, a match featuring goals from each side seems likely, particularly with Palace’s recent record at home and Chelsea’s ability to secure wins against lower-ranked teams despite their defensive woes.

Christopher Nkunku, with his knack for scoring, particularly in Chelsea’s recent away games, stands out as a key player to watch. Given Crystal Palace’s defensive issues, he poses a significant threat.
