Chelsea are l0oking to get back to winning ways after their shock defeat to Stoke City last weekend, especially given Man City’s crushing win in the early game.
Jose Mourinho has been unhappy with his sides defending so he will be looking for a big improvement from the Blues.
Meanwhile Palace have improved massively under new manager Tony Pulis and have won three of their last four to drag them within touching distance of safety at the bottom of the table.
As for team news, Chelsea start make three changes as David Luiz, Michael Essien and Willian replace Gary Cahill, John Obi Mikel and Andre Schurrle.
Meanwhile Palace have defender Dean Moxey out with a hamstring injury so Adrian Mariappa takes his place in defense.
Chelsea: Cech; Ivanovic, D Luiz, Terry (c), Azpilicueta; Ramires, Essien; Willian, Mata, Hazard, Torres
Crystal Palace: Speroni, Mariappa, Delaney, Gabbidon, Ward, Jedinak, KG, Bannan, Puncheon, Chamakh, Jerome
