Chelsea’s Predicted XI: We predict Frank Lampard’s starting XI as Chelsea travel across London to face Crystal Palace.
The Blues are facing their third London side within a week coming off the back of a 3-0 win over Watford at the weekend and a disappointing 3-2 defeat to West Ham United.
That defeat to the Hammers gave top-four rivals the Manchester United the chance to close the gap to just two points behind Chelsea as the race for Champions League football hots up.
Lampard will be desperate for all three points at Selhurst Park this evening, with the game kicking off at 6pm.
So what team will Lampard pick to try and overcome the Eagles. Here we predict the Chelsea boss’ XI…
Goalkeeper: Despite being dropped by Lampard before lockdown, Kepa returned to the side and will be expected to keep his place again.
