Crystal Palace vs Chelsea predictions
Crystal Palace bounced back to some kind of form over December and January.
Boosted by the return of Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze – Olise scored six and assisted three in just 11 appearances this season is back on the sidelines again with an injury as is Eze who has hit five in for the Eagles.
It’s a huge blow to Palace’s chances this season in achieving a much higher position, as Olise achieved that attacking return in just 754 minutes of game time and their top performing attacking threats are all out yet again.
It’s tough to see Palace finding enough to beat this Chelsea side and they’re in pretty decent form with a plethora of injury issues this year themselves.
📝 Crystal Palace vs Chelsea betting tips
Chelsea should be able to get back to winning ways against Palace, even away from home and will look to do a quick league double over them.
Nkunku to score, over 2.5 goals – 12/5
Chelsea’s forward line-up should continue to get better and better under Mauricio Pochettino as they all settle into the Premier League a bit more.
Many of the stars like Christopher Nkunku, have had to have a slow intro into the league with injuries galore for the Blues across this season.
The French forward has had a few more more minutes recently which included a goal in their 4-1 loss to Liverpool.
Against Palace though, they may well have more luck finding the net after a difficult couple of losses in the league against Wolves and Liverpool.
In fact, Nkunku has played just 246 minutes and already scored twice with only being in the starting lineup twice.
Nicolas Jackson has had a fair bit more of an intro into the league and has scored seven in 16 starts for the Blues.
He’s not been involved much over the last three games but could take more of a leading role again tonight alongside Nkunku which could produce a couple goals.

Cole Palmer and Christopher Nkunku to score – 5/1
Palmer however, has been the star man for Chelsea this season from his centre forward role.
It will be interesting to see how they shape up with all three strikers fit and whether Palmer could be dropped back into a more attacking mid role like he did against Wolves playing alongside Conor Gallagher and Raheem Sterling as Nkunku led the lineup up top.
Either way, the Blues are spoilt for choice in attackers and potential goal scorers and they should be able to capitalise against a Palace side really struggling with things at the moment.
Palmer has scored ten and assisted four already this season, in just 19 appearances and he’s consistently in the starting lineup.
The only game he’s missed recently was the reverse fixture just a few weeks ago.
