Chelsea vs Crystal Palace Match Analysis and Prediction

Chelsea looks to keep a challenging week behind them this weekend as they welcome London rivals Crystal Palace home. The match schedules for Saturday at Stamford Bridge with kickoff at 2:30 pm.

Lampard experienced a shocking 27 minutes last weekend with West Brom with the Blues going down three goals down. The side managed to salvage the shame with the game ending in a 3-3 draw. The shocking turn of events put Lampard in the spotlight after a massive summer spending.

Things were not all roses last week as the victims failed to secure a quarter-finals place in the EFL Cup. The game started well with Werner netting his first Chelsea goal. A late equalizer by Lamela was enough to see the game go to penalties. A miss by Mount cost the side a spot in the quarter-finals.

A complimentary light in the game was the Blues go to see a glimpse of goalkeeper Eduoard Mendy who replaces the troubled Kepa between the sticks. This weekend will determine a lot of how the Blues move on with Lampard.

Crystal Palace was on form with a winning record since the start of the season. The side tested their prowess against in-form Everton and ended in a 2-1 loss. Roy Hodgson will be looking to pick up their form especially after putting a horror show against Manchester United.
