After losing six of their last eight games, Chelsea know that a win this weekend is a must to take some pressure off of new manager Graham Potter’s shoulders, for the time being at least. The Englishman has never won at home to Crystal Palace in all competitions in his managerial career, drawing one and losing three of four previous such games in charge of Swansea and Brighton and will need to put that right if he wants to stay as Chelsea manager beyond this season. 

The Blues have lost two of their last three Premier League home games (W1), as many as they had in their previous 21 league games at Stamford Bridge before this (W10 D9), whilst also losing three of their last six home London derbies in the Premier League, including their only one under Graham Potter so far (0-1 vs Arsenal). No Chelsea manager has ever lost his first two Premier League London derbies in charge. 

Palace, however, have also struggled for form recently, losing five of their last six matches across all competitions and are looking for their first victory over Chelsea since 2017 under Antonio Conte.

Chelsea vs Crystal Palace match stats

Chelsea are yet to concede a goal in the first half of a home Premier League game this season, the only side to do so. The Blues haven’t conceded in the first half of any of their last nine league games at Stamford Bridge stretching back to last season, their longest such run since March 2013 (10 in a row). Graham Potter’s side have also managed just four first half goals at home this term, half as many as they have managed in the second half (8), whilst Palace have only conceded once before half-time in their last four matches.  

Jeffrey Schlupp has committed more fouls than any other Crystal Palace player this season (31), while Cesar Azpilicueta will come against the only player to be fouled 50+ times in the Premier League so far this season in Wilfried Zaha.
