Saturday 9th November
Chelsea vs Crystal Palace
Chelsea put their five Premier League match winning streak to the test against Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off. The Eagles have been in a flap in recent weeks – can they restraighten their flight path against the Blues?
- Tammy Abraham has scored nine goals in 13 Premier League games for Chelsea. If he scores against Palace, he’ll become the second youngest player to reach double figures in the competition for the Blues (22y 38d) after Arjen Robben (21y 342d), while only Diego Costa (9) and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink (11) will have done so in fewer games.
