EPL Matchday 4 : Chelsea To Edge Crystal Palace (03/10/2020).

Chelsea in early kick-off of the Premier League matchday 4 fixtures this weekend as they host their London rivals Crystal Palace at the Stamford Bridge this Saturday.

Chelsea's Frank Lampard men defeated Brighton 3-1 on the opening day but were beaten 2-0 when they hosted Liverpool on matchday 2. They were forced to come from a 3-0 down to rescue a draw in their previous League outing against West Brom.

Crystal Palace kicked off their Premier League campaign with a 1-0 win against Southampton before securing a 3-1 victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford. Though, they lost 2-1 against Everton but Crystal Palace had a very good game.

Chelsea will be without injured trio Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic and Billy Gilmour. Timo Werner is a minor doubt after a knock in their previous game.

Crystal Palace might be without eight of their players since a lot of their defenders are on the sidelines and Michy Batshuayi will be unavailable to face his parent club.

Trends shows that Chelsea have claimed 5 straight wins over Crystal Palace and have kept 2 clean sheets in their last 3 meetings against Crystal Palace which Chelsea has scored over 1.5 goals in 4 of their last 5 encounters.
