Watch Chelsea vs Crystal Palace Live

Chelsea is set to face Crystal Palace in the Premier League, aiming for a win to maintain their position in the top half of the standings. Crystal Palace, currently in 15th place, are just four points behind Chelsea.

Chelsea’s season has seen highs and lows, with a recent loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers following a positive spell. Mistakes in decision-making, notably a missed opportunity by Raheem Sterling, allowed Wolves to stay competitive in the first half, leading to a turnaround in the second half.
Despite Christopher Nkunku scoring a late goal for Chelsea, it only served as a consolation in their eighth loss under Mauricio Pochettino in 18 Premier League games.

The team is currently eight points away from the top six and needs to start stringing together wins to avoid relying solely on cup competitions for a European spot.
While Chelsea has struggled at home, winning only three out of nine top-flight games at Stamford Bridge, they have recently won their last two matches and are unbeaten in their last five across all competitions.

Roy Hodgson heads into the upcoming match against Chelsea with the pressure to keep his position at Selhurst Park, mainly due to his team’s struggle with just one win in the last 11 games. Despite this, the recent consecutive draws against Manchester City and Brighton & Hove Albion seemed like positive steps, although they’re now only six points above the relegation zone.
