Crystal Palace will host Chelsea at the Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon in a derby game that shows how far off the two London sides have come.

While Chelsea are fourth on the table, Palace are bottom.

The Blues would be aiming for a seventh successive away victory in all competitions, which would be a new club record for the top flight.

A seventh consecutive win would equal the Blues’ longest overall sequence of away success set from 4 February to 8 April 1989, when Bobby Campbell’s team burst out of Division Two in record-breaking fashion with 99 points.

For the Eagles, they have the worst record in the history of the Premier League. No team in the history of the top tier of English football had ever lost the first seven without scoring a goal. They are also only the fifth team to endure seven winless games from the start of the campaign, and the first since Portsmouth in 2009/10.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
