Chelsea are up against Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge hoping to register a fourth consecutive win in all competitions. The Blues are only two points behind Manchester City and Liverpool in the table. Chelsea also remain as one of the three teams in the Premier League yet to suffer a defeat in the season. Crystal Palace may be in the 14th spot coming into the game, but they are just three points above the drop zone. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.

Crystal Palace are given a price of 13.00 to win the match. However, this was not a great price for a team that has only managed two victories this season. Chelsea, meanwhile, have been brilliant so far this season. Even without key players like Eden Hazard, Chelsea have been able to step up a gear in recent matches. After having picked up four wins in the last six home games against Palace, our preview would go with a win for Chelsea.

Chelsea vs Crystal Palace draw odds: 6.75
Crystal Palace win odds: 13.00
Correct Score odds
Chelsea have been a strong attacking outfit since the start of the campaign, but they seem to have taken their game up a notch in recent weeks. The likes of Ross Barkley in great form and the blues have scored 14 goals in the last six games. Palace, though, have made this London derby quite a difficult watch. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for the Blues.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been over 2.5 goals in five out of the last six games between Chelsea and Palace at Stamford Bridge. Even if Palace do not score in the game, the goals from Chelsea alone should be sufficient to witness over 2.5 goals, according to our total goals prediction.

First Goalscorer odds
Eden Hazard still remains a doubt for the game but he is likely to be recalled after missing the last three matches with a back injury. However, Alvaro Morata would be my pick for the game as the Spaniard has been at the end of several good chances in recent matches. He is also in decent form with signs of a partnership with Ross Barkley appearing in recent games. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Alvaro Morata.
