Chelsea vs CPFC




At Stamford Bridge, Chelsea is sublime to welcome uncomfortable opponent Crystal Palace who is slipping at the match of the 12th round. This is a London derby worth watching, whether Gary Cahill in the day to return to the old roof will help.  Palace found the winning circuit after 3 rounds.  Or the Blues will continue the excitement to extend the winning circuit to 6 consecutive rounds and conquer the second place in the table.

Chelsea had just gone through a crazy 4-4 draw with Dutch defender Ajax Amsterdam in the fourth round of Group H Champions League, they were soon led down in the second minute but rookie Pulisic continued to shine.  It was a penalty to help Jorginho equalize with 1-1, but it was a nightmare for the Chelsea defense when they conceded three more goals, a turning point until two Ajax midfielders were sent off in a row and the Blues were  up with 3 goals from Jorginho, captain Azpilicueta and star star Reece James.  1 point for the Blues to temporarily lead the table and the next round they just need to win Lille is almost to continue when Ajax vs Valencia will clash.  Reece James has just become the youngest player in Chelsea history to score in the Champions League, he can replace Marcos Alonso who is showing signs of overload this game on the right wing, pushing Azpilicutea to the opposite wing, Jorginho is away.  face because of enough cards but Ngolo Kante came back after injury.  The Blues are currently in the highest form of the Premier League at this time with the last 5 consecutive rounds, winning besides the confidence of having a home ground with only 1 defeat in the last 5 matches.

Crystal Palace is quite scared every time away from home with only 2 victories in the last 6 matches accompanied by a record against Chelsea with only 2 victories and 7 defeats in the last 10 matches, not to mention  squad quality is hard to match.  Their performance is also going down when the 3 consecutive rounds do not know the smell of victory, causing them to leave the team for the European Cup with 1 point less.  Anyway, the last 3 rounds, they have to face 3 clubs in the top 5 so the results are acceptable, teachers and coach Roy Hodgson need to overcome the 3rd blunt fire because they have only 10 explosions.
