We expect a 2-0 Chelsea win at 7.0 with bet365
Chelsea are the favourites to win this match, and will want to get back to winning ways in the Premier League against Crystal Palace at 1.38 with Unibet.
The Blues find themselves 6 points behind leaders Manchester United and Manchester City and can’t afford to lose any more ground even at this early stage in the season.
They come up against a team who can’t buy a win for love nor money at the moment. Palace have enjoyed the worst start in Premier League history, losing 7 out of 7 so far.
Manager Frank de Boer was sacked last month and replaced by Roy Hodgson, but so far it hasn’t had the desired effect. The Eagles are still yet to even score a league goal this season.
For this, there is only one way we can see Saturday’s going. Even without the likes of Alvaro Morata and Ngolo Kante, Chelsea will surely win at 1.38 with Unibet.
Morata limped out of the defeat to Manchester City at the end of September and isn’t expected back for another week or so. His goals have been invaluable to the Blues this season.
In his absence, we could see Eden Hazard stepping up to the plate and scoring his first goal of the season at Selhurst Park. He is 5.1 with Unibet to open the scoring.
We think Palace’s woes in attack will continue against one of the league’s strongest defences. Chelsea to win 2-0 is priced at 7.0 with bet365.
Chelsea face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon. The home side are looking for their first point, first win and first goal of the season.
Chelsea have been in up and down form, following up an excellent win away at Atletico Madrid with a home loss to Man City last time out. They are 6 points off the pace at the top of the table.
Chelsea Form: LWWWDW
Palace have endured the worst start to a season in Premier League history. After they 7 games, they have 0 wins, 0 draws and 0 goals scored. Manager Frank de Boer was sacked last month.
Crystal Palace Form: LLWLLL
Surprisingly, Palace were 2-1 winners at Stamford Bridge the last time the two teams met, although Chelsea have the edge in their previous meetings with 24 wins to 11. They have also won on their last three visits to Crystal Palace.
Star stiker Alvaro Morata will miss out after pulling a hamstring in the loss to City two weeks ago. Ngolo Kante is also out after sustaining an injury on international duty, and new signing Danny Drinkwater remains on the sidelines.
Palace’s situation isn’t helped by their growing injury list, which includes star players Christian Benteke and Wilfried Zaha. Also out is Chelsea loanee Ruben Loftus-Cheek, as well as defender James Tomkins and striker Connor Wickham.
Chelsea win at 1.38 with Unibet
2-0 Chelsea win at 7.0 with bet365
