Chelsea vs Crystal Palace preview

The pressure on Graham Potter intensified in midweek with the Blues losing the first of two London derbies this week – only this time at closest rivals Fulham.

It's now just one win in ten for Potter's side in the league, which is form that has left them down in tenth spot.

They're now ten points off a top four spot and interestingly just ten clear of the relegation spots.

The home form has desperately let them down so far, with just 14 points from right games at Stamford Bridge.

New signing Joao Felix was thrust straight into the action in midweek – just 30 hours after signing – and was sent off in the second half, adding to the already desperate list of absentees in the attacking areas.

For Palace, they've not quite got going yet since the return to action following the World Cup.

A win at Bournemouth the only win since the restart, with home defeats to Fulham, Spurs and Southampton – the latest in the FA Cup.

Chelsea vs Crystal Palace form

The form when these two meet makes for incredible reading.

Chelsea have won the last ELEVEN meetings between the pair, with their last defeat to Palace back in October 2017.

The Blues have their measure, with Palace scoring just twice in the past six encounters.

Earlier this season, Odsonne Edouard gave the Eagles an early lead, before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's equaliser.

Ex-loanee Conor Gallagher then netted a 90th minute winner at Selhurst Park…sickener.

Team News


The Blues will be without superstar signing Joao Felix after his red card in midweek.

And with Raheem Sterling, Christian Pulisic and Armando Broja already out, attacking reinforcements are limited.

Denis Zakaria limped off on Thursday night and looks set to face a spell out.

Edouard Mendy, Reece James, Ben Chilwell, Wesley Fofana, N'Golo Kante and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are all missing.

Crystal Palace

Sam Johnston, Nathan Ferguson and James McArthur all missed their FA Cup defeat to Southampton due to fitness issues.

The trio could all be absent again.

But Tyrick Mitchell returns from suspension and will likely return at left-back for the visitors.

SunSport tips

Kai Havertz to score first @ 6/1 with Paddy PowerCLAIM HERE

Yes, he hasn't scored in the past four games.

But much of that is down to who Kai Havertz is playing alongside, particularly with the chopping and changing due to injury.

Chelsea have had the measure of Palace recently and that could continue here.

With Chelsea desperately needing a result, we expect them to come out all guns blazing from kick off and could grab an early goal here.

Jorginho 3+ fouls @ 9/2 with Sky Bet – CLAIM HERE

He's fallen out of favour slightly in the Blues midfield but Jorginho will likely come back in for this one.

Denis Zakaria's injury piled more pressure on the midfield and he's the man who replaced the crocked man on Thursday.

Palace could do what they did at Anfield earlier this season and play on the break.

Jorginho's sitting role means he could be the first point of contact, and with that comes the chance of missed tackles.

Stopping the Palace front four's counter is a daunting task for a fragile Blues side and Jorginho could find himself taking one (or three….) for the team.

Chelsea vs Crystal Palace – What the managers have said

Graham Potter will inevitably face questions on his future.

We'll have the best of what he and Patrick Vieira have to say when we hear from them.
