Hiddink Makes 2 Changes: Predicted Chelsea Starting XI vs Crystal Palace

Chelsea will be looking to secure a much-needed three points when they take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Sunday afternoon. Here is the side we think Guus Hiddink will select for the game:

Goalkeeper: Thibaut Courtois is certain to keep his place between the sticks this weekend.

Defence: Hiddink is unlikely to make too many changes from the defence that kept a clean sheet against Manchester United on Monday night so I expect Kurt Zouma to once again keep Gary Cahill out the team and start along with John Terry, Cesar Azpilicueta and Branislav Ivanovic.

Midfield: Cesc Fabregas missed the draw at Old Trafford due to illness but the Spaniard is set to return and should replace John Obi Mikel alongside Nemanja Matic in midfield.

Attack: Diego Costa is set to return from a one match ban and should start up front with Eden Hazard dropping back to his attacking midfield position. Pedro Rodriguez is the man most likely to make way with Willian and Oscar keeping their places in the starting eleven.

Here is how I think we’ll see Chelsea line-up:

Back Chelsea to win at crazy odds of 7/1 + money back if you lose

 What do you think of the line-up? What would be your team?
