Crystal Palace vs Chelsea team news

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace made the trip to Brighton last weekend but probably wish they hadn't bothered. The Seagulls dominated the match, heading in at the halftime interval three goals to the good. Crystal Palace did pull a goal back through Jean-Philippe Mateta in the seventy-first minute but the Seagulls replied with another goal late on to win the match 4-1.

Cheick Doucoure, Rob Holding, Michael Olise, Eberechi Eze, Marc Guehi, Joel Ward and Jesurun Rak-Sakyi could all miss the Chelsea game due to injury.

Predicted Lineup: Henderson (GK), Andersen, Wharton, Muñoz, Mitchell, Richards, Schlupp, Hughes, Lerma, Ayew & Mateta

Chelsea

Chelsea took the lead at home to Wolves in their last league game through Cole Palmer but Wolves scored four goals on the run to take a commanding lead into the final eight minutes of the match. Thiago Silva pulled a goal back for the Blues but it was no more than a consolation as the visitors picked up an unexpected but deserved victory.

Wesley Fofana, Reece James, Marc Cucurella, Romeo Lavia, Robert Sanchez, Trevoh Chalobah, Levi Colwill and Lesley Ugochukwu all look set to miss the short trip to Crystal Palace on Monday night through injury.

Predicted Lineup: Petrović (GK), Silva, Chilwell, Disasi, Gusto, Gallagher, Palmer, Fernández, Caicedo, Sterling & Nkunku

Player to Watch: Cole Palmer

Cole Palmer has been Chelsea's best player so far this season both in terms of scoring goals and creating them.

The former Man City man has netted ten times in the Premier League alone from midfield and top scores for the Londoners, while he and Conor Gallagher have both created four goals each making them the creative forces in this Chelsea side.

We're backing Palmer to run the show at Selhurst Park on Monday night and could see the England man scoring and getting an assist.
