Prior to the start of the season, Chelsea were touted as favorites to challenge for the league title, given the sheer talent within their ranks. However, few weeks gone by, and the future is already looking bleak for the West London club.

Meanwhile, Crystal Palace have begun the campaign in brilliant fashion, winning two of their first three matches. Even though it’s still early days, there is a real feeling the Eagles can continue this amazing run for some time to come. Watch these lads dazzle us come kickoff in London.

Chelsea vs Crystal Palace Team News

Still early in the campaign, Chelsea are already beginning to lose their shit. Splashing cash in the transfer window, club chief Roman Abramovich has bolstered his squad, hoping to challenge for major honors this term.

Since Antonio Conte led the club to league success in 2017, the Blues haven’t gone any close to lifting the title again. However, with a number of big-name signings this summer, the club are gunning for a return to the pinnacle of English football.

Unfortunately, Chelsea’s new players have struggled to adapt to life in England, failing to find a working dynamic on and off-the-pitch. Though expected to hit the ground running at the club, talisman Timo Werner is yet to register a single Premier League goal in three outings.

On the back of a humbling 2-0 defeat at the hands of reigning champions Liverpool, the Blues headed to the Hawthorns to take on West Brom last weekend. Desperate for a win, Lampard’s charges set out to get all three points on board.

However, Chelsea were left stunned by West Brom’s unique approach to the game. Failing to survive an early Albion onslaught, the Pensioners found themselves three goals behind at the interval. At this point, the game looked to be well over for them.

Impressively, the Blues never gave up hope, mounting an enviable comeback to secure a 3-3 draw, salvaging a point in the process. The likes of Mount, Hudson-Odoi and Abraham were on target as Lampard’s men left the hosts heartbroken.

Knocked out by Tottenham in the League Cup in midweek, Chelsea will be desperate for a victory versus Crystal Palace to return to winning ways. They will have their work cut-out against these tricky Eagles – ones that sent Man United sinking some time ago.

Sitting pretty in sixth-place, Crystal Palace have amassed an impressive six points from their first three games. Last time out, they were handed the herculean task of toppling in-form side Everton on home turf.

Despite putting on a good show, Hodgson’s men were found on the wrong end of defeat as goals from Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison put them to the sword. Expect a rousing response from Palace this weekend, as they look to bounce back from their ruins.

Chelsea vs Crystal Palace Predictions

This is a difficult match to predict given both sides look well-matched at the moment. Heading here on the back of a two-game winless run, Chelsea will be short on confidence. Also, they have some defensive frailties to attend to.

Palace are very capable to walking away with something here. Very unlucky to have lost to Everton on the last matchday, the Eagles now have a shot a redemption. Expect no less than three goals between these sides at fulltime.
