Chelsea have won 76 per cent of their Premier League matches against Crystal Palace (19/25), including the last eight in a row. With a minimum of 20 meetings, it’s the highest win-rate that one team have against another in the competition’s history.
Forty per cent of Palace’s Premier League wins this season (two out of five) have come against sides starting the day in the top four (3-0 v Spurs and 2-0 v Manchester City). The Eagles have never won as many as three matches against sides in the top four within a single top-flight campaign.
Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic has scored five goals in his five Premier League matches against Palace, including three in two at Selhurst Park. It’s more than he’s scored against any other opponent in the competition.
Palace’s Michael Olise has been directly involved in seven goals in his last seven matches in all competitions (three goals, four assists), while overall this season he’s averaging a goal or assist every 75 minutes.
