Crystal Palace vs Chelsea preview
Crystal Palace and Chelsea renew hostilities at Selhurst Park with both sides in desperate need of points.
The Eagles are on a dismal run of four Premier League wins in 17 matches, including an embarrassing 4-1 loss to arch-rivals Brighton last time out.
The result drew boos and jeers from the travelling Crystal Palace supporters, who are taking aim at chairman Steve Parish and manager Roy Hodgson.
Reports suggest Parish is actively seeking replacements for Hodgson, but he’s struggling to find the ideal candidate midway through the campaign.
To make matters worse, the Londoners will be without Michael Olise, Eberechi Eze and Marc Guehi in what Hodgson is describing as the ‘perfect storm’ ahead of Chelsea’s arrival.
Chelsea themselves relieved some of the doom and gloom with a tremendous FA Cup win over Aston Villa on Wednesday.
Mauricio Pochettino also admitted that his position was under threat, but good performances in the domestic cup competitions has put a gloss on the club having lost ten of their 23 top-flight matches this season.

Crystal Palace vs Chelsea betting tips
Chelsea may have reserved their best performances for the Carabao and FA Cup, but they are more than capable of claiming maximum points against their struggling opponents.
The Blues blew away Aston Villa with a devastating attacking performance, while the midfield partnership of Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo is finally paying dividends.
And, as mentioned, they meet a Crystal Palace in crisis with questions surrounding the chairman, manager and the absence of three of their key talents in Michael Olise, Eberechi Eze and Marc Guehi.

Chelsea superstar Cole Palmer is having quite the campaign since his arrival from Manchester City.
The attacker, 21, has registered 12 goals in Chelsea blue in 27 appearances in all competitions – including four in his last four top-flight outings.
Palmer has fired off 45 efforts on goal in 1458 minutes of league action, meaning that he’s averaging a shot every 32.4 minutes.
No Chelsea player can beat his 20 shots on target this season, while only Raheem Sterling and Nicolas Jackson have had more touches in the opposition penalty area.

Conor Gallagher returns to Selhurst Park in what’s expected to be a fiery affair.
The 23-year-old former Crystal Palace loanee snubbed the opportunity to make his stay permanent, and netted against them in the 2022-23 campaign.
He’s played against the Eagles five times in his career and picked up three bookings. He’s been cautioned six times in 31 appearances this season, and no Chelsea player comes close to his 50 league fouls this season.
