In their fourth match of the ongoing Premier League 2020-21, Chelsea is all set to play against Crystal Palace in a clash on Saturday, October 3. This season has not been great for the host, Chelsea, who have managed to win only one out of the three matches played so far, at the cost losing one, while another was concluded at draw. The result has been disappointing despite being the highest spenders in the transfer window. The team will be working hard to bring back their old charm, when they defeated Manchester United in the FA semi-finals.
On the other hand, Crystal Palace have claimed victory in two matches out of the opening three in their campaign this season. Defeating Southampton and Man United, Crystal Palace lost their only match against Everton last weekend.
The Chelsea vs Crystal Palace match will be played in an empty Stamford stadium due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. It is scheduled to begin at 5pm IST.
