This could be a must-win game for under-fire Chelsea (opens in new tab) manager Graham Potter, who is in danger of the sack just a few months after his appointment.

After a 2-1 loss to Fulham (opens in new tab) on Thursday, the Blues have now won only one of their last eight matches in all competitions.

Crystal Palace (opens in new tab) are not in great form either, so this might not be a classic at Stamford Bridge.

Kick-off is at 8pm GMT. Make sure you know how to watch the Premier League (opens in new tab) wherever you are.

Team news

Chelsea are without loan signing Joao Felix, whose red card at Craven Cottage will keep him out for three games.

N'Golo Kante, Reece James, Raheem Sterling, Denis Zakaria, Christian Pulisic, Wesley Fofana, Ben Chilwell, Armando Broja, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Edouard Mendy are all injured.

Manager Graham Potter makes five changes from Thursday’s defeat at Fulham, with new signing Benoit Badiashile in for his debut in defence.

Conor Gallagher, Hakim Ziyech and Jorginho all start. Carney Chukwuemeka is in for his first start for the Blues.

Palace remain without James McArthur and Nathan Ferguson, but Tyrick Mitchell will return at left-back after a ban.

He is one of three changes, with Jeffrey Schlupp replacing Will Hughes and Ebere Eze in for Odsonne Edouard.

Chelsea XI: Kepa; Chalobah, Thiago Silva, Badiashile, Hall; Chukwuemeka, Jorginho, Gallagher; Mount, Havertz, Ziyech.

Crystal Palace XI: Guaita; Clyne, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell; Olise, Doucouré, Schlupp; Ayew, Zaha, Eze.


Chelsea have lost three games on the bounce in all competitions and are now 10 points adrift of the top four heading into the weekend.

Palace have lost three of their four outings since the World Cup, including a 2-1 defeat by Southampton (opens in new tab) in the FA Cup last time out.


John Brooks will be the referee for Chelsea vs Crystal Palace.


Chelsea vs Crystal Palace will be played at the 40,341-capacity Stamford Bridge in London.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a Premier League fixture, then you won't be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Premier League, FourFourTwo currently recommends:

ExpressVPN (opens in new tab)

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee (opens in new tab)
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS5 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
