CRY vs CHE PREMIER LEAGUE FOOTBALL MATCH PREDICTION- TEAM NEWS
Chelsea vs Crystal Palace
CRY VS CHE MATCH PREVIEW:
Chelsea's season has gone from bad to worse in recent weeks. After dominating the game against Barcelona in the first leg, they had to settle for a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge, putting their Champions League aspirations under serious trouble after Lionel Messi scored a vital away goal.
Then the Blues suffered the away blues after suffering two defeats in as many matches against the Manchester giants in the Premier League, which saw them slipped down to fifth in the table, five points adrift of fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.
So there is no room for errors for Antonio Conte and his team, and a home game against Crystal Palace give them a perfect chance to redeem for their mistakes in the last matches. Expect a whole lot of changes at Stamford Bridge if Chelsea fail to qualify for the next season's Champions League.
While for Crystal Palace, the season has been nothing short of a bumpier ride. They started the season by losing seven games on the trot which cost Frank de Boer his first job in English football.
But the appointment of Roy Hodgson saw a change in the fortunes and the Eagles soon climbed up the table. But they have once again slipped down into the danger zone after suffering four defeats in their last six games. The fixtures can be blamed as they had to face the likes of Arsenal, Everton, Tottenham, and Manchester United in that period.
Now with an intimidating trip to Stamford Bridge in this game, the Selhurst park side may find themselves 19th in the table after this weekend.
When: March 10th, 11:00 PM IST

CRY vs CHE TEAM NEWS:
N'Golo Kante is expected to be back in action which ruled him out from Manchester City clash. While Conte informed that Ross Barkley may feature after recovering from injury. Tiemoue Bakayoko, David Luiz, and Ethan Ampadu are all sidelined though.
Alvaro Morato started the game against Manchester United, but he is still suffering a back pain. So winter signing Olivier Giroud may come into the side.
Courtois (GK); Rudiger, Christensen, Azpilicueta, Fabregas, Kante, Alonso, Moses, Hazard, Giroud, Willian
Injury crisis can be the main reason why Crystal Palace are in the relegation zone. Things aren't improving in that department as Palace are expected to be without hosts of first teamers. Wilfried Zaha may feature after recuperating from the injury, but on the bench only. They will certainly be without the services of Mamadou Sakho, Julian Speroni, Bakary Sako, Scott Dann, Jason Puncheon, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Connor Wickham. While Yohann Cabaye and Joel Ward are both doubts, adding to Crystal Palace's lengthy injury list. Timothy Fosu-Mensah will return after being forced to miss the trip to parent club Manchester United. Julian Speroni is also out of the game.
Hennessey (GK), Wan-Bissaka, Kelly, Tomkins, Van Aanholt, Townsend, Milivojevic, McArthur, Schlupp, Sorloth, Benteke

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Chelsea should be able to get all three points in this match even though Crystal Palace have far bigger reasons. Conte needs a reaction from his players and we think that he will get at Stamford Bridge.
A 2-0 or 3-1 win for Chelsea.
