Crystal Palace vs Chelsea - Premier League preview and team news

Bookmark and Share

By Stephen Donovan

With their lead at the top of the Premier League now reduced to only a point, Chelsea will be aiming to stay there with a win away to Crystal Palace.

The home side were left crestfallen last time out as they finally succumbed to Newcastle United’s late pressure, meaning that their cushion above the drop zone remains just a place and three points. Recently, the Eagles’ home record has not been as impressive as it was in the early weeks under Tony Pulis, but the Welshman will have his side organised as ever and look to frustrate the title hopefuls.

Chelsea took a leaf out of Liverpool’s book when they faced Arsenal in a game billed as a huge one in the context of the title race. The Blues pressed high from the start, and blew their London rivals away within the first quarter of the match. However, after seeing both Liverpool and Manchester City win in midweek, they will be aware that they cannot afford to slip up here.

Crystal Palace are set to continue with Glenn Murray in attack, as fellow strikers Marouane Chamakh and Dwight Gayle both miss out through injury.

The visitors welcome back Willian after suspension, but Ramires is still serving a three-match ban. Ashley Cole and Samuel Eto’o are both doubts.
