Ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Crystal Palace on Saturday, Liverpool legend Michael Owen is predicting a 3-0 win for Chelsea.
“Palace will become the first side to lose nine successive games without scoring a goal in the history of the Premier League if they lose and fail to find the back of the net against Chelsea,” Owen told BetVictor.
“The champions have actually failed to score in two of their last three Premier League games, themselves, and they were well beaten by leaders and title favourites Manchester City at Stamford Bridge last time.
“It is hard to see where the goals will come from for the Eagles with Christian Benteke on the sidelines although Roy Hodgson will be hoping that the talented Wilfried Zaha might play some part. Zaha has been out injured since the opening day of the season and has been badly missed by Palace, but this might be another barren afternoon for Hodgson’s side.”
