Fraizer Aims To Maintain Record Against Top Teams

14 October 2014

Having scored twice in his last three Palace outings, Fraizer Campbell is hoping to continue his impressive record against the league's best sides when the Eagles host Chelsea on Saturday.

Last season whilst at Cardiff City, the striker netted three times against Manchester City, once against Liverpool and once against his former club Manchester United, and is now hoping to add Chelsea to that list when the men from the King's Road travel to Palace.

Chatting to Palace Player, he said: “When you’re playing against the better teams, you need every man to perform. It is a lot easier to get up for those type of games because they’re the games that everyone wants to play in.

“I think it's also about getting everyone up for the game and doing your job properly, and trying to take a chance if you get one because they don't come very often against the bigger teams.”

Campbell has started the season brightly for Palace netting twice against Everton and Leicester City, and when asked about his form and his start to the season Campbell believes there's more to come.

“I think I’ve done alright, I don’t think I have played as well as I could’ve done but I’ve scored a couple of goals and that’s probably got me out of jail a bit,” he added. “We have made a solid start to the season, a lot better than last year. We have to work on that and try to be as consistent as possible and keep doing well.”

The 27-year-old is looking forward to stepping onto the Selhurst pitch again on Saturday to face Jose Mourinho's side, especially thanks to the atmosphere created from the raucous Eagles faithful.

Referring to the last game at Selhurst against Leicester, Campbell said: “It was brilliant, the stands were shaking. The fans were really loud and it was like a party atmosphere.

“We went one up and scored again straight away. The fans being so loud played on the away teams mind and hit them for six”
