Chelsea Team News & Preview
Chelsea host Crystal Palace in the Premier League this weekend and the Blues will look to add to their eight-game unbeaten run with a win.
Conte’s men have a 10-point lead at the top of the Premier League.
The home side have a very good record against Palace and will look to maintain that here. They have won eight of their last ten against the Eagles.
Chelsea are expected to be without Moses and Terry for this game.
Predicted Chelsea Starting Lineup (3-4-3): Courtois; Azpilicueta, Cahill, Luiz; Willian, Kante, Matic, Alonso; Hazard, Costa, Pedro
Crystal Palace Team News & Preview
Crystal Palace have improved since the arrival of Sam Allardyce and will be looking to continue their form here. The Eagles are unbeaten in three and haven’t conceded a single goal in that time.
On-loan Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho’s introduction into the team has worked wonders for Allardyce’s men.
However, they will need to improve going forward if they want to get something out of this game. Palace have failed to score in three of their last four matches against Chelsea.
James McArthur is a doubt for the away side. Loic Remy is not available to play against his parent club. Jonathan Benteke, Connor Wickham, Pape Souare and Mathieu Flamini are still absent.
Crystal Palace Starting Lineup (4-2-3-1): Hennessey; Ward, Tomkins, Sakho, Schlupp; Cabaye, Milivojevic; Zaha, Puncheon, Townsend; Benteke
