Betting Tip: Chelsea @ 11/10 with betvictor

One would imagine Chelsea will eventually get their act together under Guus Hiddink, with the Dutchman having had a few more days to work with the players since replacing Jose Mourinho.

They make the short journey to Selhurst Park on Sunday to face a Palace side who are missing key attacking personnel right now. Yanick Bolasie has joined Conor Wickham, Dwight Gayle and Bacary Sako on the sidelines, leaving Alan Pardew short on attacking options.

A decent striker or two is the only thing preventing Palace from being top four material, with Diego Costa returning from suspension for the visitors and he was noticeably bright when scoring a brace against Watford recently.

Eden Hazard is starting to look like his former self and we anticipate a different outcome to the one in September where the Eagles claimed a 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge to highlight the issues that the champions had under Mourinho.
