Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction vs Crystal Palace


Since September 22nd, when they fell 2-1 at the hands of Premier League table toppers and reigning European champions Liverpool, Chelsea FC have won every match but two, across all competitions. During that ten game span, in which Chelsea has outscored their opponents 28-12, their only blemishes are a UCL group stage draw with Ajax on Tuesday night and a loss to Manchester United in the League Cup last Wednesday.

They’ve won five in a row in the Premier League, where they currently sit fourth in the table entering Saturday’s London derby at home against Crystal Palace. The Eagles have had a surprisingly good season as well up to this point as they come into the clash in ninth place.

Things are really starting to hum now for manager Frank Lampard and his grand vision of the side’s rebuild. Progress has been more pronounced and moved at a more rapid pace once a place was found for Christian Pulisic, the team’s marquee signing of 2019.

That said, let’s look at who he might select for first team

Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction vs Crystal Palace:


Pulisic      Mount     Willian

Kovacic      Kante

Emerson      Tomori      Christensen     Azpilicueta
