Preview: Chelsea v Crystal Palace

Chelsea fans across the world will be expecting to watch their club lift the Premier League trophy, after an encounter with Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

With a victory, the hosts will finally be officially crowned as champions of England. Given their unbeaten record at home this season, you have to back the West London club.

However, Alan Pardew’s Crystal Palace won’t be rolled over, and will want to give everything they have after their back-to-back losses at home to West Bromwich Albion and Hull City. However, South London club Palace know they are safe, so anything could happen.

Yannick Bolasie said, as quoted in The Guardian: “Them [Chelsea] winning the league would be deserved because they’ve done extraordinarily well this season.

“But we don’t want them to do it against us.”

Crystal Palace have found it almost impossible to win at Chelsea, with their last victory at the Bridge coming 33 years ago.

Predicted XI’s:

Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Cech; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Remy.

Crystal Palace (4-2-3-1): Speroni; Kelly, Dann, Delaney, Souare; Jedinak, McCarthur; Zaha, Puncheon, Bolasie; Murray.
