Match: Crystal Palace vs Chelsea
Competition: Premier League
Date: April 10, 2021
Kick-off time: 5:30 pm, April 10, 2021 (UK time)
Stadium: Selhurst Park
Chelsea come into this match having won each of the last 6 matches in this head-to-head. This includes routing Crystal Palace 4-0 at Stamford Bridge when the teams last faced each other back in October. It was their biggest win in this fixture since the late 1990s. The Blues have the strong upper hand in the head-to-head, with 17 wins to Crystal Palace’s 4, from their 23 Premier League encounters.
Chelsea have to get things right domestically before facing Porto on Tuesday after their shambolic thrashing at the hands of West Brom. Selhurst Park feels like one of the last places Thomas Tuchel would pick to do so but without the suspended Thiago Silva, Chelsea have a better chance of putting to bed an unfortunately timed week of turmoil. Palace have a defender enjoying the twilight of his career rather more in Gary Cahill.
Chelsea will endeavour to break back into the top four of the Premier League table – temporarily at least – when they travel to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace in Saturday’s London derby. The hosts managed to salvage a draw at Everton in their most recent top-flight battle, whereas Thomas Tuchel’s unbeaten run ended in disastrous fashion against West Bromwich Albion.
Palace’s point at Goodison Park was down to Everton’s profligacy in front of goal rather than anything else, but Roy Hodgson was nevertheless content with his side’s performance as the Eagles held their Champions League-chasing opponents to a 1-1 draw on Monday night.
