The last time Crystal Palace and Chelsea played was on November 9th of 2019. Chelsea won that match by the final score of 2-0 in front of its home supporters.
Crystal Palace has consistently struggled to get anything going on offense, as they have scored the second least amount of goals in the Premier League next to Norwich City. Crystal Palace cannot just depend on Zaha and Ayew, as they need a full effort from the entire lineup in this one. The Blues of Chelsea will look to win this match for an opportunity to make it inside the top-three in the standings, and I see them getting exactly what they want. I will take Chelsea -1 (-125) in this match.
