Thomas Tuchel and his team, Chelsea will travel to face Crystal Palace in the ongoing English Premier League as the top four finish is the only thing to fight for.
Chelsea will be looking to get back on track after last week’s humiliation at the hands of West Bromwich Albion.
As the race for the top four continues, the Blues face Crystal Palace and will be hoping for a positive result.
Crystal Palace have been in good form recently and will be looking to stop Chelsea from gaining any momentum in today’s match as they seek a place in the UEFA Champions League for next season.
1.Edouard Mendy (GK) – Edouard Mendy is a French footballer who plays as a goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has had very little to do in all of the team’s games over the last two weeks, and he will have no trouble keeping his place against Crystal Palace.
- Azpilicueta [CB] – The Spaniard will return to the starting lineup as Captain because of his tenacious and durable nature, which allows him to play a marathon of games without any issues.
Christensen [CB] – Thiago Silva was sent off against West Brom and will be replaced by Christensen, who is the best defender capable of filling in for the veteran. Christensen will keep his spot regardless of whether he plays against Porto in midweek.
Kurt Zouma [CB] – The Frenchman will start in place of Rudiger, who played the entire 90 minutes of the Champions League quarter-final.
Marcos Alonso [LWB] – Chilwell started the game against Porto and played the entire 90 minutes, so he will be a little jaded, allowing Marcos Alonso to return to the starting XI.
Reece James [RWB] – Reece James will start at RWB for the second straight game.
7.Kante and Kovacic [CM] – Kante will return to the starting lineup after a cameo appearance off the bench against Porto following his return from injury, while Kovacic will keep his spot in Tuchel’s system.
- Hakim Ziyech [RW] – Ziyech missed the game against Porto but is expected to start against Palace in the Premier League. In recent times, he has been in excellent goal-scoring form.
Christian Pulisic [LW] – Pulisic did not play in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final against Porto and will be well rested for the Crystal Palace match.
Olivier Giroud [ST] – In the Porto game, Olivier Giroud came off the bench to replace Kai Havertz, who had gone missing for the entire game. His aerial presence will be crucial in keeping the crystal palace’s center backs occupied.
