Chelsea V Crystal Palace Football Betting Tips (03/10/20)
It's been a mixed start to the season for Lampard's team.
They started off with a decent win over Brighton on the opening weekend.
This was then followed by a comprehensive defeat at the hand's of Liverpool. Before last week's calamitous 3-3 draw with West Brom.
Things didn't get much better for Chelsea midweek, as they lost on penalties in the Carabao Cup to a patched up Spurs.

On a positive note, Chelsea gave new keeper Edouard Mendy a debut, Timo Werner scored his first goal for the club, and Ben Chilwell got a run out. So it wasn't a total disaster for the Blues at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
For Crystal Palace, their excellent start to the season came to an end against Everton at Selhurst Park last weekend.
A massive positive for Palace this season has been the return to goal scoring form of Wilfried Zaha.
The flying winger loves turning on the style against the big clubs. Zaha still courts a move to an elite club, and there's no better way of proving he's up to the task, than performing against them.
Despite all that, it's hard to back against Chelsea. If the Blues don't win today, Lampard will really be under pressure.
I can't see there being a goals glut today. It has a look of 2-0 or 2-1 about it, so I would be more inclined to go for a Chelsea win, with Under 3.5 Goals (2/5).

Ben Chilwell is in line to make his first league start for Chelsea, and Lampard also has Christian Pulisic available again. Although it's not thought the American will start.
Palace have no Michy Batshuayi available for this one. Apart from that, they have the same quota of players that took on Everton last weekend.
