Crystal Palace will look to change their form when they play Chelsea at home. Their last Premier League encounter went Chelsea's way as the Blues beat Palace 2-1 at Stamford Bridge. Crystal Palace is 15th in the Premier League table with 24 points, while Chelsea is 11th with 31 points. A win for both teams will give them a great boost in the Premier League table.

Crystal Palace is five points above Everton, who are 18th in the league and in the relegation zone. Palace could get to 27 points if they beat Chelsea today at home. Palace's last game in the Premier League was against Brighton, where they lost 4-1. Their last game at Selhurst Park was a 3-2 victory against Sheffield United. That is their only win in the past five Premier League games. Palace needs a win as the teams below them are close in points. The closest is Nottingham Forest, with 21 points.

Chelsea are 11th in the league, and a win today could get them to 24 points. Their last Premier League game was a 4-2 loss to Wolves at home. Wolves jumped over them in the league after that win, but they lost 2-0 to Brentford. This gives Chelsea the perfect opportunity to jump over Wolves again in the league with a win against Palace. Their previous game was the 3-1 win against Aston Villa in the 4th round of the FA Cup. It was a positive performance for Chelsea as they eliminated one of the top teams from the FA Cup this season. Chelsea will play Leeds United next in the FA Cup, but for now, they will focus on securing three points against Palace to get closer to European spots.
