Crystal Palace is proving defiant numbers and is very hard to beat, and now hopes to surpass Chelsea’s four hopes at Selhurst Park on Thursday (start time 12:30 ET on NBC and online via NBCSports.com).
The Eagles continue to strike above the weight of their performances, defeated only once in their last six appearances. Palace beat Brighton and West Brom while drawing Fulham, Manchester United and Everton.
All five teams had something to play for, while Palace was injured but also safe for weeks. Their results are credited to Roy Hodson and the depth of the lineup, but Wilfried Zaha is back and can put the game on his heels.

Chelsea, meanwhile, scored a goal by Christian Pulisic and then a man thanks to Thiago Silva, and fell 5-2 to West Brom last weekend due to the first defeat since the time of Thomas Tuchel at Stamford Bridge.
But the Blues looked good by beating Porto 2-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday and know that three points will bring them either West Ham or a third-placed Leicester City point, depending on how the Foxes and Irons come this weekend.

In the middle of the week or not, Tuchel will prepare the Blues and we think they will get the job done with relative ease despite the status of the London derby being set on schedule. Crystal Palace 0-4 Chelsea.
