Featured Tip from James Bartman

Pick Details

Sport / league:: EPL
Event / fixture:: Crystal Palace vs. Chelsea
Event date: Tue, 13 Feb 2024 at 7:00 AM
Market:: Head-to-head
Tip:: Chelsea @ 2.00 (Betfair)
Tip Result:: Win

Crystal Palace are a Jekyll and Hyde team and it’s no secret as to the root cause. They are a mid-table side when Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise are both fit, and a relegation-quality side when one or both of those players isn’t available. At the time of writing Eze isn’t expected to play in this match and Olise is expected to be out for up to two months. The additional recent injury of Marc Guehi and the long-term injury to Cheick Doucoure further scuttles their chances. Chelsea are having a poor season by their standards, but they are still faring better than Palace and Chelsea boast a 12-game winning streak against the Eagles. Over the last decade, Chelsea have gone 8-0-2 at Selhurst Park. Chelsea do have the distraction of a midweek FA Cup clash against Aston Villa, but given Palace’s terrible form guide in the absence of Eze and Olise, I’m still happy to back the visitors.
