Matchday four of the 2020/21 Premier League gets underway on Saturday lunchtime as Chelsea and Crystal Palace meet at Stamford Bridge, with both sides hoping for a change in fortunes after disappointing results last weekend.
Frank Lampard’s side needed a dramatic comeback last week to overturn a three-goal deficit at halftime at the Hawthorns against West Bromwich Albion, with individual defensive errors once more costing goals. This takes the Blues to six goals conceded in league, which is one of the worst in the top flight right.
Crystal Palace saw their 100% start to the season end at the hands of Everton last Saturday, falling to a 2-1 defeat. Wilfred Zaha was offensively suffocated on this day, but the winger was instrumental in their opening two victories over Southampton and Manchester United, scoring three times.
Chelsea will be much less focused on their defensive game compared to how Everton set up, so expect Zaha to have more freedom here, like what was seen at Old Trafford, where he bagged twice.
