Chelsea vs. Crystal Palace: Lineups & Game Thread

Mike Hewitt

It's all going according to plan, as City lead Arsenal 3-2.  Exciting match and all but most importantly, should that result hold, we have a golden opportunity to get three points closer to the top.


Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Petr Cech | Cesar Azpilicueta, John Terry, David Luiz, Branislav Ivanovic | Ramires, Michael Essien | Eden Hazard, Juan Mata, Willian | Fernando Torres

Substitutes from: Mark Schwarzer, Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard, Oscar, André Schürrle, Demba Ba, Samuel Eto'o

Crystal Palace starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Julian Speroni | Adrian Mariappa, Damien Delaney, Danny Gabbidon, Joel Ward | Mile Jedinak, Kagisho Dikgacoi | Barry Bannan, Marouane Chamakh, Jason Puncheon | Cameron Jerome

Substitutes from: Lewis Price, Jonathan Parr, Stuart O'Keefe, Jonathan Williams, Dwight Gayle, Jimmy Kebe, Yannick Bolasie


Mourinho keeps the impressive wing duo of Hazard & Willian, this time with Mata in the middle.  Meanwhile, Michael Essien gets a chance at redemption.
