The current Premier League champions, Chelsea are set to host the London side Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Reportedly, The Blues have been thrashed out of the Premier League title race following their disappointing form and inconsistent performance throughout the season so far. Moreover, their back to back defeats against both the Manchester sides have already put a question mark on their possibility of finishing at the top four of the league table. So, the Chelsea manager Antonio Conte must have to ensure his team should come back to the winning track to secure their place at the Champions League next season. On the other hand, Crystal Palace can be considered as the giant killers in the Premier League as they already had beaten Chelsea on their previous meeting in the Premier League this season. So, we can expect a hard fought battle between both the London sides.
Chelsea vs Crystal Palace Team News:
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has shown his intention of rotating his squad. As a result, his midfield is expected to be reshuffled again. In his previous game against Manchester City, the midfield general N’Golo Kante was surprisingly left out of the starting XI. So, the Frenchman is expected to make his place into the squad. Apart from that, playing Eden Hazard as a false 9 striker has been massively under the spotlight as the decision seems to be a total failure and illogical when he has two high profiled forwards in his team including Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud. So, these changes might reflect in the team selection for the particular game. On the other hand, for the away side, the Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson might have a huge boost as the key man Wilfried Zaha is set to return from injury and is expected to start the game for his side. Apart from that, the whole team is expected to remain unchanged from their previous game against Manchester United.
