Chelsea head into this match conscious that a victory in this derby against Crystal Palace will be enough to hand them the Premier League title 2014/15 and considering that they have not dropped more than six points at home this season, the best football tipster is pretty certain that come Sunday evening, they will be Champions. Their opponents, Palace, really don’t look too motivated to spoil the party, especially since they themselves have secured the right to remain in the Premier for another season. It all seems to boil down to if the Blues will be looking to prove they can be a fun side to watch or not, after all the talk of their parking buses again against Arsenal last weekend or of they will be concentrating only on the task at hand…winning the League! Oscar should return to the starting XI alongside Thibaut Courtois who were rested in their midweek match against Leicester with Drogba once again leading the line up front. Palace will be without Ward, Thomas, Chamakh and Campbell who are all injured but should be able to recover Bolasie and Puncheon.
Our Probable Formations:
Chelsea (220.127.116.11) Courtois, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Fabregas, Matic, Willian, Oscar, Hazard and Drogba.
Crystal Palace (4.3.3) Speroni, Kelly, Dann, Delaney, Souare, Puncheon, Jedinak, McArthur, Zaha, Murray and Bolasie.
BetAdvisor Top Tips:
A top Premier League Betting expert knows that there have been under 2.5 goals scored in 8 of Chelsea’s last 9 home games so this does seem like a safe enough bet to play.
The best football prediction though would have to take into consideration that fact that Chelsea are undefeated in their last 17 home matches in the Premier League so one should not think about betting against them in this one.
