What Trueform says for Crystal Palace vs Chelsea

Chelsea’s rating almost slipped off the Trueform chart last time out, but we feel there were excuses for that below-par display and they had previously ranked well above Crystal Palace.

The Blues have won on their last three visits to Selhurst Park and are expected to continue that trend against a Palace side still searching for a first Premier League goal of the season.

Roy Hodgson will have been grateful for the international break to try and regroup but is still set to be without Christian Benteke and Wilfried Zaha against the champions.

The Eagles are desperately lacking firepower up front and 91/100 for an away win to nil stands out for our Crystal Palace vs Chelsea betting predictions.

A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds

Crystal Palace’s problems were plain to see as they went down 4-0 at Manchester United a week after losing 5-0 away to neighbours City.

There was no shortage of effort from the Eagles, but Hodgson had to start out with winger Bakary Sako up front before replacing him with 24-year-old debutant Freddie Ladapo, a former non-league forward.

“That’s our choice at the moment or we go to the 4-6-0 system,” commented Hodgson, who side were restricted to a few long-range efforts at Old Trafford.

Faced with another confident and well-drilled defence, 13/10 for the Eagles to go down 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 is the second of our Crystal Palace vs Chelsea betting tips.

A Look At Chelsea’s Betting Odds

Chelsea took a bit of flak for their 1-0 loss to leaders City at Stamford Bridge, when Antonio Conte’s side struggled to create any noteworthy chances.

However, the Blues did lose Alvaro Morata to injury in the first half and may have been feeling the effects of a tiring midweek Champions League win at Atletico Madrid.

“When you have to play another massive game a few days later, it’s impossible to press box to box,” commented Conte.

Given they had previously prevailed at Tottenham, Leicester and Stoke, we’re prepared to give the visitors another chance here and like 19/4 for a 2-0 triumph from the Crystal Palace vs Chelsea odds.
