Crystal Palace will play against Chelsea in Premier League and we got the Best prediction football for the match. The game is on Saturday, April 10 from 17:30 UK at Selhurst Park.
Crystal Palace is in 12th place in Premier League with 38 points after 30 matches. Palace lost only 1 of their last 6 games in the league. That happened in the derby away from home against Tottenham 4:1. Their last clash was on Monday a visit of Everton. The game finished without a winner – 1:1.
The Toffees was leading with a goal from James Rodríguez till the end but Michy Batshuayi scored in the 86th minute to give his team a point. The Eagles are 12 points away from the relegation zone so they know that they will play in Premier League next season again and till the end can focus to seek a place in the top 10.
Chelsea is in 5th place in Premier League with 51 points after 30 games. The Blues are only 1 point behind 4th West Ham United. However, Tottenham and Liverpool are both only 2 points behind them in the standings and will be an epic battle for the top 4 till the end of the season.
If Chelsea didn’t finish in the top 4 will be a huge failure and even Thomas Tuchel who was appointed and started very well during his period can be fired at the end of the season if this happened.
Chelsea lost for the first time since the arrival of their German coach and it happened in their last clash at home against the relegation team West Brom. West Brom beat them 2:5 at Stamford Bridge which was very humiliating even that the Blues played with 10 players since the first half where Thiago Silva was sent off for a second yellow card. If we look closer, we will see that the London club won only 2 of their last 6 clashes in the league.
Chelsea is the favorite in the upcoming London derby. Crystal Palace lost only 1 of their last 5 home matches in the Premier League. However, 4 of them finished with not more than one goal.
We saw no more than two goals in the last 3 visits of Chelsea in the league so my bet here will be on not more than two goals in the match. Best prediction football: Under 2.5 goals
