Chelsea can win title with victory against Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge
Jose Mourinho’s Blues can win the Premier League title against Crystal Palace, and despite the Portuguese manager’s insistence that it is memories and not medals that are most important to him.
“I have replicas of every cup I won and I don’t care about the replicas. Or the medals. The meaning is the important thing,” Mourinho said, whose Chelsea side are odds-on at 4/11 with Coral to beat the Eagles.

“What stays forever is the feeling, the emotion, the memory of the moment,” Mourinho continued. “I have clear in my memory every one of these moments I lived.
“You have like a flash of the people you love most, the people who are with you, a little bit of the most important moments that lead to that trophy.
“It’s like a quick flash. And, with me, five minutes later, move on.”
Having beaten Leicester 3-1 last time out, despite going behind, Chelsea will be hoping to get the job done sooner rather than later in the match, and Didier Drogba who got the equaliser against the Foxes, is 5/4 to score again anytime.
In the reverse fixture, Chelsea, in true Mourinho style, edged out a 2-1 win, with Oscar and Cesc Fabregas both getting on the scoresheet. They are 7/4 and 2/1 respectively in the anytime market.
Meanwhile, Alan Pardew’s side will no doubt be doing their utmost to make things uncomfortable for the hosts, and will be looking to end a run of two defeats in a row. The last time they won was a 4-1 away victory over Sunderland, when Yannick Bolasie dispatched a superb hat-trick.
He is 5/1 to net anytime, while Fraizer Campbell who scored in the home match between the two clubs, is 4/1 in the same market.
