[Teams] Crystal Palace vs Chelsea: Confirmed Line-Ups

By on October 18, 2014

Chelsea get back to Premier League action after the international break when they take on Crystal Palace at Selhurt Park this afternoon.

The Blues head into the game sitting five points clear at the top of the table but with Manchester City currently leading against Spurs (at the time of writing), the pressure is on to maintain that advantage.

Jose Mourinho is without Diego Costa as he continues to struggle with a hamstring injury, so Loic Remy starts up front with Didier Drogba named among the subs.

Andre Schurrle is also ruled out after missing Germany’s game earlier this week with flu, so Willian partners Eden Hazard and Oscar in attack.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Crystal Palace

Speroni, Kelly, Hangeland, Delaney, Ward, Bolasie, Jedinak, McArthur, Ledley, Puncheon, Campbell.

Subs: Mariappa, Guedioura, Doyle, Zaha, Hennessey, Gayle, Chamakh.

Chelsea

Courtois, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Fabregas, Matic, Willian, Oscar, Hazard, Remy.

Subs: Cech, Zouma, Filipe Luis, Mikel, Salah, Drogba, Solanke.
