Crystal Palace have had a decent Christmas period with seven points from their three games so far, although with wins over Leicester and Manchester City, they would have hoped for more than a goalless draw last time out against Cardiff. Chelsea are now 11-points adrift of league leaders Liverpool, and only a win in the London Derby will suffice for Sarri and his team. Form Labs bring you their betting preview and tips for the game and don’t forget we have plenty of value for you with our enhanced odds and acca’s for the weekend’s games.
Palace Should Have Max Xmas Points
Palace certainly would have taken four-point form fixtures with Man City and Cardiff, but no one would have thought three of those would come at the Etihad.
They were unlucky not to take maximum points hosting Cardiff as they battered the Bluebirds with 31 shots, but only five were on target.
The last two games are evidence of their preference to play on the counter rather than take the game to the opposition, so with Chelsea visiting it should play to their strengths.
Indeed, the Blues know this all too well as the Eagles have had the better of them in two of their four most recent battles.
Crystal Palace v Chelsea Betting Tips
Both teams scored in each of these as all four featured at least three strikes. Over 2.5 Goals has been a profitable play for Chelsea under Maurizio Sarri, especially on the road.
Eight of their nine away games under the Italian have gone over this line and with Eden Hazard in top form, but just two clean sheets in their last seven, it looks a sensible ploy once more.
