The Chelsea vs Crystal Palace promises to be a close game as both teams have had a rough first half of the season. Palace managed to rescue a point against Man City two weeks ago, will they be able to replicate this with another impressive away performance? Don't miss the Chelsea vs Crystal Palace live stream – and you can watch it live from anywhere with a VPN.
Chelsea fans will be disappointed with their start to the season, being in tenth position is not good enough for a club who have spent approximately £857m on players under new owner, Todd Boehly. Although they have spent a lot, their injury list has been overwhelming this campaign, and it just got worse as Reece James is out again for several months. Fortunately for Chelsea fans, it's not all doom and gloom as star signing Christopher Nkunku is finally back from injury and will surely improve their attack force.
Crystal Palace have also had their fair share of injuries with important, young, talents Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze each spending time out. Thankfully, Roy Hodgson will be over the moon to having them back. Additionally, with the loss of Wilfried Zaha in the summer Palace have been struggling to convert, creating only 23 big chances all season. With Chelsea’s unpredictable defence Crystal Palace will certainly be capable of scoring, similarly to when they drew 2-2 with Man City two weeks ago.
