Chelsea host Crystal Palace on Saturday at Stamford Bridge and football pundits are expecting another three points in the bag for Chelsea as we draw closer to the end of the season.

MOTD commentator Jonathan Pearce backs Chelsea to get the win. He said: “On paper this looks like a 17th home win in 18 games under the irrepressible Antonio Conte for Chelsea.

“The champions elect have only ever lost at the Bridge once against Crystal Palace in top-flight football. They shouldn’t lose this.

“But it might be tighter than critics allow. Palace haven’t conceded a league goal in nearly five hours, and if Wilfred Zaha can replicate his wonder goal for Ivory Coast in Russia during the international break then anything could happen.

“Chelsea should still have enough though.”

Mark Lawrenson also tipped Chelsea to win 2-0.

“Antonio Conte’s side are getting so close to the finish line of the title race now, and they can win without playing well,” said Mark Lawrenson.

“They saw off Stoke in their last match without ever looking that convincing and I think they will find a way to beat Palace too.”
