Chelsea vs Crystal Palace coming up. It’s clear to tipster Pete Nordsted who is going to win: “Here motivation wise the stakes could not be higher. If Chelsea take all 3 points here then they will be crowned Premier League Champions in front of their own fans.
Chelsea are coming into this match on the back of a 3-1 victory at Leicester. When looking at their recent home form it reads a very strong looking W12, D3, L0 and they have won 8 of these 12 matches by 2 goals or more.
When hosting teams of Crystal Palaces standing their record reads a perfect W10, D0, L0 and they have won 7 of these 10 matches by 2 goals or more.
The recent head-to-head matches read Chelsea 1 win, 0 Draws and Crystal Palace 0 wins.
Crystal Palace are coming off 2 defeats on the bounce at home to west Brom and Hull City. However when away from home palace have a strong record that reads W6, D5, L4 and they have only lost 1 of their last 8 away games.
However when facing the elite sides it is a different story and the record reads W0, D0, L7 and 3 of these defeats came by 2 or more goals.
Even at their current price Chelsea look value to win this game and they will have never been as keen to do so. This will be an emotionally charged day and the risk v reward backing Chelsea on the handicap looks worth taking.”
