When is Crystal Palace v Chelsea?

Barring any health emergencies, the game is scheduled to take place on Tuesday July 7.

What time does Crystal Palace v Chelsea kick-off?

The game is scheduled for an 6pm kick-off and is one of three Premier League matches that day.

What is at stake?

In truth, Crystal Palace’s season seems over. They are the quintessential ‘on the beach’ team for 2020, having already secured their safety yet unable to achieve anything further up the table.

Chelsea are still very much in need of points, though. Frank Lampard’s men are sitting in fourth position right now but have Manchester United making an incredibly strong challenge for the Champions League places having closed to just a point behind them.

Where can I watch Crystal Palace v Chelsea?

It’s being broadcast by Sky Sports.

Is Crystal Palace v Chelsea free-to-air?

It’s not, no, meaning you are either going to need a Sky Sports subscription to watch it or buy a Now TV sports pass.

What is the team news?

N’Golo Kante suffered a hamstring injury in the win over Watford last time out and is likely to miss at least a couple of matches, starting with this one. His position is likely to be taken by Jorginho.

Mateo Kovacic is also nursing a knock and won’t be available for the game, and the same can be said for defender Fikayo Tomori.

Crystal Palace report no fresh injury concerns, with James McCarthy and Cheikhou Kouyate pushing for recalls. Martin Kelly, Jeffrey Schlupp, and James Tomkins all remain sidelined.

What happened in the reverse match?

Second half goals from youngsters Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic earned Chelsea a relatively routine 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge back in November.

What are the odds?

Chelsea are the 9/20 favourites to win, with the draw priced at 10/3. Crystal Palace can be backed at 13/2.
