Crystal Palace enjoy home advantage, when visitors Chelsea swing by this coming Monday for a clash in the Premier League. The former will be looking to make that home advantage count.

Crystal Palace are chasing revenge after succumbing to a disappointing defeat in the latest encounter against Chelsea. However, judging by prices from the bookmakers, they are in for a tough assignment this coming Monday.

Crystal Palace go into their next Premier League match, scoring a humble average of 1.3 per game in their last ten matches. They scored a mundane 13 times, while conceding 22. That amounts to an average of 2.2 per game, where they kept their opponents from scoring zero times.

The Blues scored 16 times in their previous ten matches, an average of 1.6 per game. They also conceded 19 goals for an average of 1.9 a game, pulling off two clean sheets in these.

A 2-1 win was the follow-up to a 1-0 victory, when The Blues last faced Crystal Palace, no doubt raising the spirits ahead of their next trip.

Crystal Palace vs Chelsea Prediction

Crystal Palace Form

Crystal Palace lost two of their last three matches, as they went down 5-0 in a meeting with Arsenal. They replied by beating Sheffield United 3-2, before losing again, this time 4-1 against Brighton. Crystal Palace managed to win two of their past six home matches in the Premier League. In the remaining four, they drew one and lost three, as they scored ten and conceded 11 goals.

Chelsea Form

Chelsea suffered a couple of disappointments in their last three matches as they were run over by Liverpool in a 4-1 defeat. Wolverhampton also proved too hard to handle as they won 2-4, before Chelsea were able to strike back in a 1-3 win against Aston Villa. Chelsea claimed just one win from the last six away games in the Premier League. They also drew zero and were defeated five times, as they were outscored by 16 goals to seven.

Chelsea and Crystal Palace seem to find it tough getting their defensively lines in order, as they both concede too many goals. We hope the trend continues on Monday, as we aim for both teams to score.

Crystal Palace enjoy a record of six wins, six draws and 11 defeats in the Premier League this season. Chelsea so far pulled off nine wins, four draws and ten defeats in the Premier League.
