The FA Cup is famous for its regular upsets over the years

Chelsea to win and over 2.5 goals

Chelsea have been in a better run of form over the last few weeks.

They thrashed Southampton 6-0 last weekend before beating Real Madrid at the Bernabeu.

Meanwhile, Crystal Palace are coming off the back of a defeat against Leicester City.

Kai Havertz first goal scorer (7/2)

Havertz is now really starting to produce the form Chelsea paid £71m for back in 2020.

The forward has netted six times in his last seven appearances.

He has also netted some crucial goals for the Blues and he will be looking to do the same again on Sunday.
