Chelsea travel to Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Monday night (20:00) looking to build on their impressive win over Aston Villa in the FA Cup in midweek, as well as piling more misery on the Eagles who have lost three of their last five in the top-flight.

Our Football Bet of the Day comes from this Monday Night Football spectacle and it is weighted in the visitors' favour.

  • #PickYour Punt - Cole Palmer and Christopher Nkunku to score anytime in Crystal Palace vs Chelsea - 5/1

Cole Palmer has been Chelsea's player of the season so far because of his incredible attacking contributions for the Blues in his debut campaign. The Manchester City academy graduate has scored 12 goals for the west London outfit this term and 10 of them have come in the Premier League.

Four of them have been scored in his last four outings. As his side head to south London looking to make the most of the Eagles missing their two key attacking players in Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze, Palmer will be eager to add to his tally in the top-flight and help Chelsea start to push on this season under Mauricio Pochettino.

Most of the positive play that Chelsea have experienced this season has had Palmer at the centre of it and we feel as though he offers great value to get on the scoresheet here.

Believing this to be a game in which the Blues can score a couple, we also fancy summer signing Christopher Nkunku to get in on the action. His debut campaign at Stamford Bridge has been blighted by injuries but in the five appearances he has made in the Premier League, he has managed two goals.

The Frenchman will be tussling with Nicolas Jackson, who scored at Villa Park in midweek, for a place in the starting lineup at Selhurst Park, but his two goals in the league have come from the substitutes bench.

He has made a huge impact when he has been a substitute this term and that is why we're confident that he can still have a role to play in this fixture even if he doesn't start the match, although it would be better if he did.

Either way, Nkunku has the quality to hurt a Palace side that are downbeat because of results, performances, and now losing their two most influential players to injury.

We're expecting Chelsea to record a vital three points on Monday night and we like the look of both Palmer and Nkunku scoring goals to help them do it.
