Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Stamford Bridge will host Sunday’s London derby between Chelsea and Crystal Palace. The Blues are not enjoying a season to remember, with the team sitting ten points behind the Champions League berth, but this game could be the turning point for Graham Potter’s troops. Raheem Sterling has overcome his injury, but all Chilwell, James, Fofana, Pulisic, Loftus-Cheek, Kante, and Broja remain in the recovery room.
Meanwhile, the Eagles aim to bounce back from a heavy 4-0 loss to Tottenham, and given their poor display in the FA Cup defeat to Southampton, we believe that the time has come for Chelsea to return to winning ways in the English top flight. As for the away side, both Nathan Ferguson and James McArthur are out of contention, while Jeffrey Schlupp should be recalled to the starting XI after coming as a substitute in the FA Cup loss.
