Crystal Palace v Chelsea Match Preview & Trends

Hodgson hopes to bring Chelsea back down to earth

The Saturday evening kick-off this week takes us to Selhurst Park where Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace host Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea fresh from a big Champions League win against FC Porto. Travelling back from Seville with huge confidence ahead of a London derby, Tuchel might take the opportunity to rotate his squad if there are some tired legs amongst the group. If Crystal Palace win, they would reduce the gap with Chelsea to a 10-point difference in the league table, and it would be the end of a 5-match unbeaten streak away for The Blues.

Crystal Palace have been led by Wilfried Zaha. The striker is the team’s top scorer with nine goals, four of those having been the critical first of the match. In his absence through injury, Palace have won just one of their last 5 Premier League games. Crystal Palace conceded at least one goal from Chelsea in the last 10 games and haven’t won their last 6 games in a row against the same opposition. The Eagles have only won one of their last 5 home games against Chelsea and have conceded at least one goal from Chelsea in the last 6 home game

On home soil this season, Crystal Palace have five wins, five draws, and five losses in 15 Premier League fixtures. The Eagles are on a three-match unbeaten streak at Selhurst Park dating back to late February against Fulham. Chelsea have kept a clean sheet in the last 4 away matches and there have been fewer than 3 goals scored in total in each of Chelsea’s last 6 away games. The blues have scored before half-time in their last 4 fixtures, kept a clean sheet in the last 4 away contests and have scored in both the first and second half in each of their last 4 games. Chelsea are undefeated in their last 5 away matches and have scored in 73% of their away matches.

Key trends

Crystal Palace have picked up an average of 1.33 Points Per Game in their 15 matches played at home

Chelsea’s average Points Per Game in their 15 away games is 1.67.

9 of the last 10 games between Crystal Palace and Chelsea at Crystal Palace’s ground have contained an odd number of goals
