Match Preview

Chelsea will get back to action in the Premier League tomorrow in an early kickoff with Crystal Palace.

The blues have failed to win any match from their last two games in the Premier League this season, loosing at Stamford Bridge 0-2 against Liverpool and sharing points with West Brom after a thrilling 3-3 draw last weekend.

Crystal Palace on the hand has been pretty impressive since the season started, winning their first two games and lost in a slight margin to Everton.

What to expect

This London derby has lots of thrilling recent history. Palace never makes it an easy ride for Chelsea and they certainly won’t tomorrow.

we expect a close game with goals from both sides but still, Chelsea should edge overall.

Injury updates

According to Lampard in his press conference earlier today, Chelsea will be having a boost with Pulisic as he is fit and will be in the squad. However Lampard also confirmed he will be starting from the bench.

Ziyech on the other hand is still not ready according to Lampard but he claims he is really close to having them all in the squad properly.

Billy Gilmour is still recovering and Lampard hinted that the process is going quite well for the lad.

Predicted lineup

With Lampard, it is never easy to predict his starting 11 because he changes plans, formation and tactics too often but for tomorrow we expect Tammy to start at top 9 while Mason and Werner joins him at the wings.

Kai Havertz will retain his free role in midfield while Kovacic and Kante sits deep.

At defense it will most likely be Azpilcueta in left back while James stays at right back with Thaigo Silva and Zouma in front of Mendy.
