In the previous round in the English Premier League, Crystal Palace just had a lucky 0-0 draw with Brentford at home. However, this result cannot hide the fact that the performance of the Selhurst Park team is quite unstable. More specifically, in the last 5 matches in all competitions, the team nicknamed The Eagles did not win 4 matches. That is why coach Patrick Vieira’s army has only a modest 13th position in the current rankings.
What’s more, their only win in recent times came when they beat lower-tier rivals Hartlepool United 2-0 in the FA Cup. In particular, the home field is the obsession of Crystal Palace.

Chelsea have just won the FIFA Club World Cup in the UAE. That is the first title of coach Thomas Tuchel’s teachers and students in 2022, and also an achievement that the Stamford Bridge team has never done before.

At this time, Chelsea currently owns 4 consecutive unbeaten matches in all competitions and 2 of them are victories. Worth mentioning, the home team at Stamford Bridge won the last match in the Premier League framework and also kept a clean sheet.
