Crystal Palace vs Chelsea – Premier League : Chelsea this season isn’t playing with Conte’s style…
Many news reports have pointed to the manager’s discontent regarding some decisions made by the board.
Conte doesn’t believe he has a competitive team to have an impact on the Champions League while defending the Premier League title at the same time.
He doesn’t understand the decision to sell Matic to a direct rival or the weak proposal offered for Llorente, a manager’s ancient desire.
Chelsea currently occupies the 4th place in the Premier League, sitting 6 points behind Manchester City and Manchester United.
Despite some less positive results on this start of the season, the team is still in a good position to fight for the top spots, which is always an enticing proposition.
Crystal Palace is on a very tricky situation on the Premier League, sitting in last place with 0 points after 7 rounds, and not being able to score a single goal on those 7 matches.
The team has already faced more accessible opponents but it is clear that something is seriously wrong with the team.
They still have a lot of quality players unavailable due to injuries and their motivation should still be very low, after being battered two times in a row and having to face Chelsea now.
Crystal Palace vs Chelsea – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Chelsea won’t be able to count with Morata, but the team still has some quality defensively this season. Conte’s biggest feat was giving Chelsea an enormous ability to defend their goal.
Kanté will also miss the match, and he is a much more important absence, but given Palace’s offensive form, I believe Chelsea will be able to have a good defensive performance.
On such a bad form, Palace desperately needs a reaction, but I believe it will be complicated to do it against this Chelsea,
who, despite the news, is still a good team who has players in good form. Hazard seems to be improving his performances and Marcos Alonso is playing an important role on the squad, so I believe that Chelsea will win this match.
