Chelsea will be looking to maintain their advantage at the top of the Premier League when they take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park this afternoon.

Eden Hazard returns to the Chelsea starting eleven after recovering from a knee injury which kept him out of the win in midweek. Pedro is the man to make way with Willian keeping his place in attack.

Nemanja Matic is also recalled alongside N’Golo Kante in midfield with Cesc Fabregas perhaps unfortunate to lose his place having scored the winner against Sunderland.

Otherwise, Antonio Conte sticks with the same side that’s served him so well in recent months as the Blues go searching for their 11th consecutive Premier League win.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Crystal Palace

Hennessey, Ward, Dann, Delaney, Kelly, McArthur, Cabaye, Ledley, Puncheon, Zaha, Benteke.

Subs: Speroni, Fryers, Mutch, Lee, Townsend, Husin, Campbell.


Courtois, Azpilicueta, D.Luiz, Cahill, Moses, Kante, Matic, Alonso, Willian, Costa, Hazard.

Subs: Begovic, Ivanovic, Zouma, Chalobah, Fabregas, Pedro, Batshuayi.
