Prediction time- Michael Owen delivers prediction for Chelsea vs Crystal Palace

CHELSEA will make it 11 wins on the spin tomorrow, according to Michael Owen.

Antonio Conte’s men travel to Crystal Palace for the lunchtime kick-off, hoping to extend their impressive run of form.

Wednesday night’s victory at Sunderland saw Chelsea extend their lead at the top of the table to six points.

If the Blues beat the struggling Eagles then they will equal their own club-record of 11 consecutive wins.

And former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Owen is expecting Conte and co to be celebrating another three points at the final whistle.

He told BetVictor: “Chelsea will equal their top-flight record of 11 successive wins from September 2009 if they take the points in Saturday’s early kick off, and it is hard to see past another Blues win.

“The Eagles don’t have the best of records in London derbies of late – five points taken from a possible thirty – and I can see that trend continuing against this rampant Chelsea side.”

Eden Hazard missed the Black Cats win through injury but is expected to return.

The Belgium international has reportedly been training ahead of the trip to Selhurst Park.
