Chelsea v Crystal Palace (1600 GMT, November 4, Sky Sports Premier League)
A London derby where the odds are well in favour of the hosts, and rightly so after their unbeaten start under Maurizio Sarri.
The Blues were given a tough test by Sky Bet Championship side Derby in midweek, but they had a much-changed team and should be convincing here.
Roy Hodgson's Crystal Palace have won just two Premier League games so far this season, both away from home after struggling in front of goal at Selhurst Park. They finally broke their duck by scoring twice in a draw with in-form Arsenal last week and this match comes in a tough fixture run with Tottenham and Man United to follow in the next two outings.
The Eagles can take confidence from the fact they have beaten the Blues three times in the last three seasons - two of those coming at Stamford Bridge.
Prediction: Chelsea 2-1 Crystal Palace (Sky Bet odds: 8/1)
The Blues can make it 11 games unbeaten in the Premier League and it is hard to see any complacency kicking in here. Two of their last three games have been against bottom-half opposition, scoring seven goals without conceding. Hodgson's side will put up a fight and hope Wilfried Zaha can inspire them, but the Blues should succeed without really having to hit top gear.
Best bet: Aaron Wan-Bissaka to be carded at 4/1
The Crystal Palace youngster can be rash at times and in a difficult match at Stamford Bridge, against the attacking-minded Marcos Alonso and Eden Hazard, 4/1 could be good value for him to be cautioned by Michael Oliver. He saw red against another title-chasing side in Liverpool earlier in the season and Chelsea's attack could cause him problems down Palace's right-hand side.
The Palace midfielder scored two penalties against Arsenal last week and had a spot-kick saved by Jordan Pickford against Everton in the previous week. He is usually reliable from penalty situations and Wilfried Zaha - Palace's key man - can draw in fouls in the final third. In terms of Chelsea scorers, Marcos Alonso is worth a shout at a general price of 4/1. The Spanish full-back averages nearly two shots per game and is due a goal in the Premier League. Ross Barkley, meanwhile, is in form having scored three and assisted three in his last three Premier League appearances. The England ace is a best price of 9/4 anytime.
- Chelsea have lost two of their last three Premier League meetings with Crystal Palace (W1), as many as they had in their first 15 against them in the competition (W11 D2 L2).
- Crystal Palace have won two of their last three away league games against Chelsea (L1), more than they had in their previous 18 combined at Stamford Bridge (W1 D8 L9).
