Chelsea to beat Crystal Palace

Ben Chiwell makes Chelsea claim

Despite beating Aston Villa, Chelsea have been in pretty form of late, losing their last two league ties to leave them sitting 11th in the table.

This poor form across most of 2023/24 has led to question marks over Mauricio Pochettino’s ability and the ability of the very expensive Chelsea squad as a whole.

But when speaking post-Villa, Ben Chilwell stated the ‘togetherness’ of the Chelsea dressing room is the best he has seen: “That was exactly the reaction we wanted and needed.

“We wanted that pressure. We thrived off it. The confidence before the game in the changing room — the togetherness — was the best I have seen.

“We delivered on the pitch. It wasn’t just the manager — the players, the staff, the fans, everyone associated with the club needed that today. Fair play to all the boys.”
