Crystal Palace vs Chelsea: Top Free Betting Tips
Crystal Palace and Chelsea both need the three points from this game as their seasons have been quite unsuccessful to date. Here are our predictions.
Under 2.5 Goals
We have two of the teams with the fewest goals in their games from the entire league this season. Chelsea have an incredible attack but it almost never scores more than one goal while Crystal Palace rarely score overall. Chelsea have been having serious problems in defense despite the massive number of defenders in the squad and Crystal Palace is the perfect opportunity for them to win a game without conceding a goal.
Chelsea To Win
Crystal Palace have always been a difficult opponent for some of the big teams like Man City but Chelsea are one of their worst opponents. Chelsea won all five most recent games against Crystal Palace. We know that the visitors had a terrible start and they lost some surprising games but this will be Graham Potter's debut in the Premier League with Chelsea and we expect him to win the game. Moreover, there was a massive break for most of the team and they should be quite prepared.
BTTS – No
We do not expect to see a goal from Crystal Palace. Chelsea's defense should be much better under Graham Potter and we look forward to seeing his style with those incredible players on the pitch. Overall, Crystal Palace have a terrible record in the matches against Chelsea and only scored a single goal in the last five times they played. As mentioned above, this is the perfect opponent for Chelsea to start the new era in the Premier League.

Crystal Palace Preview
Crystal Palace started the season better than expected despite the two defeats in four games against Arsenal and Manchester City. The team has potential and we expect some solid results in the near future. They were productive on the transfer market and got some signings for the future – a CDM in the face of Cheick Doucoure from Lens for 23 million euros and a CB – Chris Richards from Bayern Munich for 12 million. Defensively, the team should pick up speed and concede less goals this season.
The situation at Chelsea is crazy right now. This is the team that spent the most money in the league on the transfer window – more than 280 million for players like Wesley Fofana, Marc Cucurella, Raheem Sterling, Kaliodou Koulibaly, and more. At the same time, the results have been terrible and most games since the start were defeats. Graham Potter will have one hell of a task to complete at Chelsea.
