What Trueform says for Chelsea vs Crystal Palace
Our Trueform chart highlights just how far Chelsea’s form has fallen of late and Crystal Palace could be a value bet to heap more misery on the Blues.
Palace suffered late heartbreak in losses to Tottenham and Manchester United and certainly deserve a change of fortune.
The Eagles can take heart from a good record against their next opponents, having prevailed 2-1 at Selhurst Park in October, as well as winning on their last couple of trips to Stamford Bridge.
A Look At Chelsea’s Betting Odds
Chelsea have tasted defeat in four of their last five Premier League fixtures following back-to-back losses in Manchester.
Antonio Conte’s side showed some positive signs when going down 2-1 to United at Old Trafford, but were then widely criticised for employing negative tactics in a 1-0 loss to City.
The Blues had only 29 per cent of the possession at Etihad Stadium and Eden Hazard moaned: “We could have played on for three hours and I wouldn’t touch a ball.
“When you leave the pitch and you have the impression that you’ve ran, but that you haven’t played a game of football, that’s a pity.”
Conte faces a tough task to lift his players back up for this game, especially as some may be distracted by next week’s Champions League trip to Barcelona.
Looking at the Chelsea vs Crystal Palace odds, 5/2 for the visitors to avoid defeat is another tempting option.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Crystal Palace are back in relegation trouble after picking up just two points from six games and suffering a trio of defeats.
However, it is hard to fault their effort in the last couple of losses.
The Eagles only conceded an 88th-minute Harry Kane header against Tottenham and led Manchester United 2-0, only for the Red Devils to rally and complete a comeback win with Nemanja Matic’s last-gasp wonder strike.
Andros Townsend, who netted against United, told the club’s official website: “Everyone is devastated.
“Twice in eight days we’ve thoroughly deserved at least a point, if not all three. We’ve been undone by a bit of quality right at the end.”
We’re hoping the Eagles can stay positive, though, and 25/1 for them to claim a third straight 2-1 triumph at Stamford Bridge completes our Chelsea vs Crystal Palace betting tips.
