Crystal Palace vs Chelsea – Team News

Chelsea face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in just under an hour, and the teams are in!

We were really interested to see what Mauricio Pochettino would do given the players available, and there are interesting selections through the team. He makes one change, with Thiago Silva back in the team for the injured Benoit Badiashile.

That means Christopher Nkunku stays on the bench, against expectation. The Frenchman was rested last week, so we were sure he would be in tonight, but instead it seems extra caution is being taken. Let’s hope it’s not an injury setback – he’s on the bench, which would seem to indicate that’s not the case.

It means we get to see Nicolas Jackson playing out on the left wing, with Cole Palmer up top and Noni Madueke on the other side.

Here are the full team line-ups for Crystal Palace vs Chelsea (kick off at 15:00 GMT)
