Chelsea welcome Crystal Palace to Stamford Bridge on Saturday in English Premier League action.
Long gone is the solace which engulfed Chelsea prior to the start of Premier League 2020-21. After signing seven new players for the ongoing new edition of the marquee league, the club was finally envisaged to address the issues which bogged it down in the foregone campaign.
In 14 previous head-to-head encounters between the two sides, Chelsea hold the clear advantage. They have won 10 games and lost four.
Their most recent match was in July, and ended in a 3-2 win for Chelsea. Goals from France international Olivier Giroud, winger Christian Pulisic and Tammy Abraham secured the victory for their side. Ivory Coast international Wilfried Zaha and striker Christian Benteke scored the goals for Crystal Palace.
Chelsea Predicted XI (4-3-3): Edouard Mendy, Reece James, Kurt Zouma, Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell, Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante, Kai Havertz, Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham, Timo Werner
Crystal Palace Predicted XI (4-4-2): Vicente Guaita, Joel Ward, Cheikhou Kouyate, Mamadou Sakho, Tyrick Mitchell, Andros Townsend, James McCarthy, James McArthur, Eberichi Eze, Jordan Ayew, Wilfried Zaha
