How to Watch Chelsea vs. Crystal Palace

Chelsea's back three is not the impenetrable brick wall it was for large parts of their title-winning season a year ago.

The Eagles have won back-to- back Premier League games at Stamford Bridge, after failing to win any of their first 13 at the ground in top-flight competition (D5 L8).

Fifth-placed Chelsea are now two points behind fourth-placed Tottenham, who face Bournemouth on Sunday as the battle hots up for places in next season's Champions League. "He is a really young player", Conte added, while failing to confirm whether Bakayoko will make his squad for Palace. "I think Willian is playing in a fantastic way but I want to underline not only with the ball, also without the ball because he is working very hard for the team", the Italian said.

The Eagles are without a win in their last six league games.

Palace lost 2-1, thanks mainly due to a slow first-half.

Conte acknowledged they could have been more clinical, but overall it was a performance that impressed him. But United fought back and a stunning strike from Nemanja Matic in the 90th minute sent Palace to another cruel defeat.

The match was a frustrating one for Giroud, who is still searching for his first Premier League goal since joining Chelsea.

However, Conte revealed that the former AS Monaco star is also back in full training and might be fit for the visit of Palace or Wednesday's trip to Barcelona.

Crystal Palace are [13.0] outsiders for this game but perhaps should not be dismissed out of hand.

Driving through the center of the field, flicking the ball past Crystal Palace defenders and then meeting it on the other side, Willian was so quick his wild locks struggled to keep up with him. They have now lost all of their last three games and they have a tough task this weekend when they travel to Stamford Bridge for a mini-derby in London. We are backing Eden Hazard as our prediction in this market, and he is available for similar odds at Coral.

Both teams to score is generously priced at [2.24] and appeals strongly for this match.

On paper, Crystal Palace are better equipped to tackle the challenge, which admittedly looks increasingly ominous by the day. Antonio Conte's men need a near-perfect run of form to end the season to have a chance at a top four finish.
