          Crystal Palace vs Chelsea: Betting Tips, Match Prediction & Preview

          Crystal Palace host Chelsea at Selhurst Park this Monday to close out another week in the Premier League. Both sides sit in the mid-table, either needing the three points to close in on European football or put some more space between them and the relegation zone.

          Crystal Palace and Chelsea meet in a London derby this Monday in a game in which both teams desperately need the three points. Both sides are in a rough patch of form and need a win to set them straight.

          Crystal Palace currently sit 14th in the Premier League after 23 games. The Eagles have six wins, six draws and 11 losses, leaving them on 24 points, just five points above the relegation zone.

          The Eagles have been underperforming in front of goal this season. In 23 games, Crystal Palace have 26 goals, giving them an average of just 1.13 goals a game. The defence is marginally better, conceding 40 goals but also keeping five clean sheets, which ranks them 15th in the league.

          Chelsea sit just above Palace in 11th in the Premier League. In 23 games, The Blues have nine wins, four draws and ten losses which leaves them on 31 points, seven points from European football.

          The Blues have had their issues in front of goal this season but have still scored 38 goals in 23 games, with Cole Palmer grabbing nine goals for the season so far. However, Chelsea have conceded 39 goals and have kept just five clean sheets.

          Crystal Palace and Chelsea have met 64 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming all the way back in 1906. The Blues have a far better record in the fixture with 37 wins in comparison to The Eagles’ 12 wins. In fact, a draw is more common than a Palace win, happening on 15 occasions.

          Chelsea have won the last 13 meetings between the two, Crystal Palace not beating The Blues since 2017. However, it’s a low-scoring affair, with only two games in the last five having over two goals, both being 2 - 1 wins.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Crystal Palace have one win, one draw and three losses.

          The Third Round of the FA Cup saw Palace hosting fellow Premier League side Everton. Despite the controversial red card to Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Palace were unable to take advantage of the extra man and the game ended in a 0 - 0 draw and a replay.

          This replay saw just one goal separate Crystal Palace and Everton. Andre Gomes’s goal in the first half was enough to secure the 1 - 0 win and spot in the next round for Everton.

          Back in the Premier League, it was a London derby against Arsenal for Palace. Braces from Gabriel Magalhaes and Gabriel Martinelli along with a goal from Leandro Trossard gave The Gunners a 5 - 0 win.

          The one win for Crystal Palace came against a struggling Sheffield United. The Blades took the lead in the first minute through Ben Brereton Diaz and was joined on the scoresheet by James McAtee, but a brace from Eze made it 2 - 2 before halftime. Michael Olise’s goal in the second half secured the 3 - 2 win for The Eagles.

          The last time out for Crystal Palace was against rivals Brighton. Goals from Lewis Dunk, Jack Hinshelwood and Facundo Buonanotte gave Brighton the 3 - 0 lead at halftime. Jean-Philippe Mateta got Palace on the scoresheet but a goal from Joao Pedro secured the 4 - 1 win for Brighton.

          In their last six games in all competitions, Chelsea have three wins, one draw and two losses.

          Palmer scored the only goal of the game, a penalty, in the added time of the first half. This gave Chelsea the 1 - 0 win over Fulham, despite having just three shots on target.

          The second leg of the League Cup Semi-final saw Chelsea host Championship Middlesbrough. Morgan Rogers scored a late consolation for Middlesbrough, but a brace from Palmer, goals from Enzo Fernandez, Axel Disasi and Noni Madueke along with an own goal from Jonny Howson gave Chelsea the 6 - 1 win.

          The Fourth Round of the FA Cup saw an all-Premier League tie against Aston Villa. There were a combined nine shots on target all 90 minutes, with both sides failing to convert any chances, settling for a 0 - 0 draw and a replay.

          The trip to Anfield was a one-to-forget for Chelsea. Diogo Jota and Conor Bradley gave Liverpool the 2 - 0 lead at halftime and Dominik Szoboszlai added to the lead just after the 60-minute mark. Christopher Nkunku got a goal back for Chelsea but a goal from Luis Diaz secured the 4 - 1 win for Liverpool.

          Palmer opened the scoring against Wolves, but a hat-trick from Matheus Cunha and an own goal from Disasi gave Wolves the 4 - 1 lead. Thiago Silva scored late on, but Wolves held on for the 4 - 2 win.

          Chelsea managed to progress through to the FIfth Round of the FA Cup on Wednesday night as they earned a stunning 3-1 win away at Aston Villa thanks to goals by Conor Gallagher, Nicolas Jackson and Enzo Fernandez.
