Chris Sutton is making predictions for all 380 Premier League matches again this season, against a variety of guests.

For this weekend's games, he takes on Sexy Beast star Stephen Moyer, who is a West Ham fan.

Sutton's prediction: 0-1

Well, Chelsea are back on form after their FA Cup win over Aston Villa - so this is a nailed-on Crystal Palace win.

Being serious, though, I'm worried about Palace, especially with Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze's ongoing injury issues, and I am making this prediction on the basis that they will both be missing.

Although Chelsea remain a very odd side, and we don't know what kind of performance we will get from them, I can see them keeping a clean sheet and they have got enough firepower to nick a goal from somewhere.

Stephen's prediction: 1-1

Palace are all over the shop but Chelsea's inconsistency is on a different level and they just cannot put a run of performances together.

If Olise and Eze were fit, I would be more likely to back Palace, but without them it is very hard to think they will win.
