[Teams] Chelsea vs Crystal Palace: Confirmed Line-Ups

Crystal Palace given major boost ahead of Chelsea match

Tiemoue Bakayoko and Ethan Ampadu are back from injury but they only make the bench.

Crystal Palace will hand late fitness tests to Wilfried Zaha and Mamadou Sakho, who are back in training after respective knee and calf injuries.

Meanwhile, Crystal Palace will be looking for a win to move them out of the relegation zone and have already beaten Conte's side this season as well as the corresponding fixture last term.

They nearly added a fourth on the stroke of half-time, but Tomkins made a brilliant intervention on the line to deny Giroud at the end of an exceptional move. It's a pity at the end we conceded the goal and then we played three minutes a bit nervous because after you dominate the game you hope to feel the game more relaxed.

Think you can do better than Lawro?

Chelsea is still hopeful to move into the top four, now sitting five points behind Tottenham.

Moscow's other, better-known Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) is the successor to the KGB's First Chief Directorate. Russian media said his motivation was financial: he received more than $100,000 paid into a Spanish bank account.

Zaha has been a key player for Palace this season with four Premier League goals in 20 starts but has not featured since he played the full 90 minutes in the 1-1 draw with Newcastle United on February 4 despite picking up the injury in that game. Conte played without an orthodox striker, as Eden Hazard forlornly led the attack, with the hosts cruising to victory.

On paper, Crystal Palace are better equipped to tackle the challenge, which admittedly looks increasingly ominous by the day. The current champions are already five points behind the top-four.

The French defender will be replacing David Luiz, who will be sold after a show of indiscipline under Conte and having a rough time with the Blues.

The eyes of the footballing world will be on Old Trafford this Saturday lunchtime as Jurgen Klopp's swashbuckling third-place side head to their second-place rivals. Only Frank Lampard (147) and Didier Drogba (104) have scored more.

Palace lost 2-1, thanks mainly due to a slow first-half.

The Eagles are without a win in their last six league games.

"Olivier has specific characteristics; he's a strong player, he has a lot of physicality and I think in some games it's right to start with him, in others it's right to start with Morata, in others it's right to continue to play with Hazard as the number nine".
