Chelsea will be looking to keep the pressure on the Premier League’s top two with a win over Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.
Maurizio Sarri has made wholesale changes to his starting eleven with Kepa recalled in goal following his rest during the Carabao Cup win over Derby County in midweek. Marcos Alonso, David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger and Cesar Azpilicueta are all recalled in defence with the likes of Gary Cahill and Davide Zappacosta dropping to the bench.
Jorginho comes back in to join N’Golo Kante in midfield while Ross Barkley is preferred ahead of Mateo Kovacic, Cesc Fabregas and Ruben Loftus-Cheek – who are named among the substitutes.
Eden Hazard is only fit for the bench after overcoming a back injury meaning Pedro and Willian support Alvaro Morata in attack.
Here are the confirmed line-ups
Kepa, Alonso, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Rudiger, Kante, Jorginho, Barkley, Pedro, Morata, Willian
Subs: Caballero, Cahill, Zappacosta, Fabregas, Kovacic, Loftus-Cheek, Hazard
Hennessey, Van Aanholt, Tomkins, Sakho, Wan-Bissaka, Townsend, Milivojevic, McArthur, Kouyate, Meyer, Zaha
Subs: Guaita, Kelly, Schlupp, Riedewald, Puncheon, Sorloth, Ayew
