It is, indeed, the Eagles’ best start to a Premier League campaign since 1997.Palace are causing problems from dead-ball situations; since the arrival of Alan Pardew as manager Palace have scored 16 set-piece goals, more than any other Premier League side during that period.And the Eagles, who did not score a single own goal in the Premier League last season, have already scored two this campaign.Palace’s record at Stamford Bridge is poor. In six Premier League visits they have lost five, drawn one (in March 1995), scored just five goals and conceded 16.last_img read more
