West London giants Chelsea would be hoping to continue their recent form in the Premier League ahead of their London Derby clash home to Crystal Palace who are one of the best teams on the road this term.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has led the Blues to five straight wins in the Premier League since the 2-1 loss at home to league leaders Liverpool.

Since the Liverpool defeat, Chelsea have won games against the likes of Southampton, Burnley, Newcastle United, Brighton and Hove Albion as well as bottom team Watford.

Frank Lampard has one or two changes to make for his starting XI ahead of the Crystal Palace game.

The former Chelsea midfielder will have to name a substitute for Italian international Jorginho in his starting lineup with the player suspended for the game against Eagles at Stamford Bridge after accumulating five yellow cards.

French World Cup winner N’Golo Kante is likely to come in for the suspended Jorginho in the Chelsea midfield.

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount is also likely to miss the Crystal Palace game because of injury.

Likely Chelsea vs Crystal Palace: Kepa Arrizabalaga; Cesar Azpilicueta, Kurt Zouma, Fikayo Tomori, Emerson Palmieri; Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante, Ross Barkley; Christian Pulisic, Willian and Tammy Abraham.
