Chelsea will be playing today in the Premier League matchday 30 against the London club, Crystal Palace, in a derby where the Blues Chelsea will be eyeing the three points ahead of their crucial Barcelona match in the Champions League. The match against Crystal Palace won’t be easy after their performance against Manchester United where Crystal Palace lost in the last seconds 3-2.
When and where is the match?
When: The match will be on Saturday, March 10 at 6:30 PM BST.
Where: Stamford Bridge (home)
Who will play?
Antonio Conte is expected to start with a strong Xl, regardless of Barcelona’s match in a few days. However, some players should be rested.
We predict the starting Xl to be as follows:
Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois
Defenders: Andreas Christensen, Gary Cahill (Captain), and Cesar Azpilicueta
Midfielders: Marcos Alonso, N’Golo Kante, Cesc Fabregas, and Davide Zappacosta.
Forward: Willian, Eden Hazard, and Oliver Giroud
Chelsea should get back on the winning track after losing to Manchester United and has to take advantage of Liverpool losing today so the Blues can compete for the third place with Tottenham Hotspurs as well. We expect a 2-1 win for Chelsea.
Chelsea have lost the last Premier League games against Crystal Palace.
