Game week 3 ended with lots of drama with 37 goals scored. So far this season, 18 penalties have been awarded to 12 teams with Leicester city getting 5 penalty calls.
Here is a look at what Game week 4 might look like.
Chelsea vs Crystal Palace
The Blues welcome London rivals, Crystal Palace to Stamford bridge after a frightening
weekend last game week. Chelsea conceded 3 goals in the first 27 minutes against West
Brom and came from behind to clinch a point and Frank Lampard’s men are desperately in
search of their first home win of the season.
Although Chelsea have had to struggle so far, despite spending huge this summer transfer
window, they have welcomed new Goalkeeper, Edouard Mendy for 24 million pounds to help
mend goalkeeping woes and Frank Lampard who has confirmed Christian Pulisic will be
back on the bench after being injured will have his eyes set on the 3 points available.
Crystal Palace will also be gunning for a win after losing to Everton at home last week. A win
against Chelsea away, will make them the second team, after Sunderland in 2014, to win at
Stamford Bridge and Old Trafford in consecutive away matches. Roy Hodgson’s men have
started the season very strong, clinching two wins so far, despite crashing towards the end
of last season and the Eagles will look to ensure they continue strong by making it difficult
In the 22 times Chelsea have met Crystal Palace, they have won 16 times (8 home wins, 8
away wins) and while Lampard will keep trying to blend the new boys into the system, Roy
Hodgson will be looking to take no prisoners and should heavily exploit Chelsea’s defence.
At the end of the game, a win or draw is predicted for Chelsea.
