Chelsea vs Crystal Palace preview

Of the two semi-finals, this is perhaps the less glamorous. It’s also the most one-sided – the majority of punters will expect Chelsea to overcome Palace and advance to the final. However, this is the FA Cup, so there’s always the possibility of an upset around the corner.

The route to the semi-final hasn’t always been plain sailing for Chelsea. They struggled to beat Portsmouth in the fourth round, requiring extra time to advance, plus also had difficulty overcoming a stubborn Luton Town in the fifth round. Wins over Chesterfield and Middlesbrough were more routine.

Crystal Palace haven’t needed extra time in any of their FA Cup matches this season, but they did only manage to beat both Millwall and Stoke City by a single goal. However, they found it easier beating Hartlepool in the fourth round, and were incredibly impressive in beating Everton 4-0 in the quarter-finals.

But what about current form? Chelsea go into the game in a strange position, as they’ll be disappointed at their elimination from the Champions League, but hugely happy with the effort they put in on Tuesday, almost turning the tie around, until Karim Benzema scored an extra time winner.

Crystal Palace lost their last game, going down 2-1 to Leicester, but before that hadn’t lost since February 19th, when they were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea. While they’re the underdogs, they’ve proved this season that they have the ability to push Chelsea all the way on Sunday.
