Crystal Palace vs Chelsea Prediction

Chelsea will endeavour to break back into the top four of the Premier League table - temporarily at least - when they travel to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace in Saturday's London derby. The hosts managed to salvage a draw at Everton in their most recent top-flight battle, whereas Thomas Tuchel's unbeaten run ended in disastrous fashion against West Bromwich Albion.

Chelsea have one foot in the Champions League semi-finals after goals from Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell secured an impressive 2-0 win against the Portuguese champions in Seville. Tuchel praised midfielder Mount for scoring his first ever goal in the competition, claiming the 22-year-old England international had elevated his career once again.

Mount was also on target from off the bench in the defeat by the Baggies, having previously scored his fourth goal for England in a 2-0 World Cup qualifying win in Albania during the recent international break, so he is in form in front of goal.

Crystal Palace took full advantage of their host’s profligacy to steal a scarcely deserved point at Everton last weekend, though their own lack of cutting edge at Selhurst Park could scupper their chances of upsetting the odds against Chelsea.

The talon-less Eagles’ effort from the penalty spot against WBA in their last outing there was the only goal they mustered in four league matches at home, and Palace should struggle to improve their fortunes in the final third against a robust Chelsea team this weekend.

Thomas Tuchel may rotate his squad given Champions League commitments, but the German has a wealth of talent at his disposal and I suspect the west Londoners will have too much class for Crystal Palace. The Eagles have conceded at least one goal in 23/30 Premier League matches this term, not to mention Crystal Palace are the sixth-lowest scorers in the division this season.

CHELSEA TO WIN 1-0 @ 9/2

Crystal Palace Team News

Palace's hero of the hour Batshuayi would have been pushing for a starting role this weekend, but he is ineligible to face his parent club, so Wilfried Zaha and Christian Benteke are set to continue up top. Benteke has amassed six goals and two assists from his last 10 league games against Chelsea, though, and the Belgian forward's spot should not come under any threat from Jean-Philippe Mateta.

However, Hodgson's injury problems are well-documented, as six players in Nathaniel Clyne, Nathan Ferguson, Mamadou Sakho, James McCarthy, James Tomkins and James McArthur are nursing injuries and are unlikely to be available.

OLIVIER GIROUD TO SCORE @ 7/5

Chelsea Team News

Thiago Silva is suspended following his dismissal against WBA, though Thomas Tuchel has few injury issues to contend with. Kurt Zouma, Marcos Alonso, Olivier Giroud, Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi will all hope to see minutes having started on the bench in midweek.

However, with rotation on the cards, Kurt Zouma will hope to be given the chance to redeem himself, while Christian Pulisic and N'Golo Kante are both in contention to start after recovering from injuries in time to appear off the bench against Porto.
