Chelsea vs Crystal Palace Prediction

Chelsea is coming into this match in much better form than Crystal palace has been in and Chelsea have a lot more talent at every position. They have won 4 straight matches and are coming off of a win in the Club World Cup, now being the Champions of the entire world after winning the Champions League last year. Crystal Palace have not been playing well recently but they are at home here where they have been better this year and Chelsea has a Champions League match coming up this week so they may not have their best lineup out and may not even give their best effort in this match. Chelsea have also been struggling in away matches recently as well, they have not been losing matches but they have drawn more over their last 7 matches than they have won. Considering the circumstance, Crystal Palace will give a very good effort at home here knowing that they may not be getting the best Chelsea team as they rest for their midweek Champions League match. Crystal Palace is not good enough to run over Chelsea's great defense here but they could keep their attack at bay here and come away with a draw.
