Tip Chelsea - Crystal Palace
If this game is anything like the Champions League match against Ajax, we'll all be in for a treat. Fourth placed Chelsea look to get three more points as they host Crystal Palace who are ninth in the table. Chelsea go into the weekend with a healthy looking six point lead over fifth placed Arsenal. They have won five league games in a row since losing at home to Liverpool. Home form has seen them win twice in the Premier League this season. Those were wins over Brighton and Hove Albion and Newcastle United in their last two played at Stamford Bridge. Both wins came with Chelsea keeping a clean sheet, that'd be welcome after Tuesday's 4-4 draw with Ajax.
Crystal Palace slipped down to ninth in the table after losing 2-0 at home to Leicester City on Sunday. They are only two points behind Arsenal in fifth and seven above the relegation zone. Palace have only earned one point from their last three league games. It's been a tough fixture list though with matches against Manchester City, Arsenal (who they drew with) and Leicester City. Now they face Chelsea away and next up after that is a home match against Liverpool! Their away form has produced just one loss in the last four. They have won at both Manchester United and West Ham United this season and have scored twice in three of their last four. Palace have lost their last three games against Chelsea, the tip is for that to become four with a home win here.
