Chelsea – Crystal Palace
Chelsea welcomes Crystal Palace in a match from the 30th round of the English Premier League. Let’s examine this clash at the Stamford Bridge in our winning soccer predictions.
Chelsea are not in the best possible position to chase the 4th place in the league. Right now the Blues are 5th in the standings, trailing on 5 points behind Tottenham. Theoretically Chelsea could still get among the first four teams in the standings, but it’s going to be very difficult in the current situation.
Right now Chelsea have 53 points and a record of 16 wins, 5 draws and 8 defeats. Right now Antonio Conte’s team is in a terrible form – Chelsea have lost four of their last five games, only winning against West Bromwich Albion at home. In their last game the Londoners suffered a defeat against Manchester City at the Etihad. Before that they also lost against Manchester United, Watford and Bournemouth.
It’s clear that this is going to be Antonio Conte’s last season at Chelsea. The Italian tactician won the league in his first campaign, but his second is not going very well so far.
Crystal Palace on the other hand continue their fight for survival. Right now Palace are 18th in the league standings, being in the relegation zone. They have 27 points won so far and a record of 6 wins, 9 draws and 14 defeats. In their last five games Roy Hodgson’s boys are without a win – two draws and three consecutive losses.
Palace are just one point behind the 17th Southampton and the safe zone, so nothing is over for them just yet. But they surely need to start winning more points again.
These are our winning soccer predictions for the Premier League clash between Chelsea and Crystal Palace at the Stamford Bridge in London.
