Picking the Best Potential Chelsea Lineup to Face Crystal Palace on Saturday

Oct 13, 2017 Posted Under: News

?Chelsea head to Selhurst Park to face a Crystal Palace who have accumulated 0 goals and 0 points so far this campaign on Saturday.

The Blues will be looking to bounce back after losing narrowly at home to Manchester City 1-0, although the scoreline slightly flattered the Blues who were dominated for the majority of spells.

Goalkeeper

?The Belgian has been the go to man for Chelsea between the sticks this year and in the past few seasons, keeping three clean sheets this term. 

He has made some crucial saves especially in their last fixture against Manchester City.

Defence

Cesar Azpilicueta looks set to hold his place following impressive performances this season under Conte. 

David Luiz is available following his three-match suspension and with a commanding presence in the box and the style Palace play, he will come to be useful for the Blues. 

And to the young Dane, Andreas Christensen. Every opportunity he has had he has taken it and looked calm and composed on the ball. The home side will look to sit deep and with Christensen a ball playing centre back he’d be the perfect fit for Conte. 

Midfield

Moses and Alonso are likely to keep their spots despite competition from Zappacosta, but in the league they have been ever so reassuring. ?

Cesc Fabregas is the next best option for N’Golo Kante who is likely to miss the game following a hamstring injury which he suffered whilst on duty for France. You couldn’t really ask for a better back up. Bakayoko as well looks set to slot in the midfield with he the only other midfielder available with Drinkwater still on the sidelines injured.

Eden Hazard and Pedro are two key players who can pluck something out of nothing and there won’t be many chances come Saturday so the Blues need to be clinical. 

Morata has netted 6 times this season but he is racing to be fit for the game after also suffering a hamstring problem in Chelsea’s last Premier League fixture. ?
