Premier League leaders Chelsea will be keen on maintaining their winning streak intact on Saturday, when they visit Crystal Palace, in what is set to be an exciting London Derby. The match will be played in the Selhurst Park.
The Blues have been absolutely formidable in the Premier League, having won their last 10 matches successively. Moreover, they have managed to keep a clean sheet in eight of them, and have got themselves a superior goal difference of +23. Their last couple of fixtures were quite tricky, considering that they had to face a defensively strong West Bromwich and Sunderland. Nonetheless, they overcame those odds too and won by a scoreline of 1-0.
On the other hand, the Glaziers have lost three of their last five matches. Interestingly, the three losses came at home, against Manchester United, Manchester City and Swansea City. They sole victory was against Southampton, which came by 3-0. In addition to this, they have conceded at least 2 goals in 7 of their last 8 Premier League matches. Amidst this, the daunting forwards of Chelsea - Eden Hazard and Diego Costa are certain to score in this game.
This is another game where Chelsea are sure to emerge as the victors and retain their grip at the top place in the table.
The Selhurst Park in London will be home to a blockbuster encounter between Crystal Palace and Chelsea, as both the clubs head into the second half of the Barclays Premier League. This encounter will take place on Sunday afternoon, at 13:30 hours, local time.
The first leg of this fixture was won by Crystal Palace with 2-1, who in all fairness have had a pretty impressive season so far. They are currently sitting at the fifth place with 31 points, and are coming in this match after being held to two consecutive draws against AFC Bournemouth and Swansea City. However, prior to that, they did win against Stoke City and Southampton.
Chelsea too are coming in this match after being held to a goalless draw by their arch rivals Manchester United. However, since the departure of Jose Mourinho, The Blues appear to be playing fairly better, but have certainly got a long way to go.
Comparing the squads of the two teams, Chelsea have definitely got the upper hand here. All their players are fit, while Crystal Palace have got some of their players sidelined. Moreover, the experience is definitely greater on the side of the hosts. They should be able to win this match here and get their year started on the right note.
League leaders will be looking to cement their place at the top of the league when they travel to Crystal Palace. The game is scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 18 at 15:00 hours BST.
Going into this game Chelsea will surely be the favourites. They have a handsome lead at the top of the league and with a win here; they could either extend it or keep the difference at five points. Diego Costa is in fine form and many would expect him to find the back of the net in this game as well. Eden Hazard is slow and steady finding his quick feet and with Cesc Fabregas in midfield, Chelsea seems unstoppable.
Crystal Palace has had a decent start to the season according to the standards that they set. They have surely been scoring goals, but their leaky defence remains to be the concern. A large number of defenders are out injured and that will leave a large whole at the back. Palace will have to play a compact game and ensure they do not make errors.
This game surely seems beyond the home team and you could Chelsea to thump in about three or four goals in this game.

Palace are 17th in the table, but only three points above the drop zone. Their problem has been a lack of goals and the absence of Marouane Chamakh and Dwight Gayle this weekend will not help matters against Jose Mourinho’s side. Glenn Murray and loanee Cameron Jerome will have to shoulder the striking burden in the absence of Chamakh and Gayle.
Chelsea thumped Arsenal 6-0 in their last game. Oscar scored twice for the Blues, with Eto’o, Schurrle, Hazard and Salah also netting for the Blues. It was the first time Chelsea had scored more than five goals against Arsenal in the league and the win was also their biggest ever against the Gunners.
Palace had to taste defeat against Newcastle United last weekend. It was an unfortunate defeat as Papiss Cisse scored right at the death for the Magpies after an inspired performance from Julian Speroni seemed to have done enough for the Eagles to take a point from the fixture.
