Chelsea v Crystal Palace Football Betting
Premier League Betting & Odds
Premier League Match Betting Overview
Last season’s Champions League winners and team in progress, Chelsea, take on the team in constant mediocrity, Crystal Palace.
Chelsea look to be building for another big season, having just won the European Super Cup, and apparently on the verge of re-signing Romelu Lukaku, the lethal forward the club is yearning for.
For Palace, they have replaced retiring manager Roy Hodgson, with ex-Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira, who has made several new and quality signings to reignite and breathe life into Palace’s fortunes.
This game will come too soon for Lukaku, but following the Super Cup win, could three at the back be repeated against Palace? In terms of players, Tuchel has pretty much a full-depth squad to choose from, yet with a disjointed pre-season with the Euros and the Olympics, a number of young or back-up players could be given a chance for this opener.

With several new signings and injuries to Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise, Vieira’s line-up against Chelsea is a bit of mystery. Yet with Chelsea being an obviously superior opposition, we should expected a fairly defensive set-up, with the hope of successful counter-attacks via the nous and finishing of the ever-reliable Wilfried Zaha.

With Chelsea building on last season’s Champions League success and seemingly going from strength-to-strength, it’s hard to look beyond a win for them. Yet with the relative unknown quantities of new Palace players, Vieira’s side could well spring a surprise or too.
