Chelsea could be without as many as three players against Palace

After receiving a red card last weekend against West Brom, captain John Terry will miss tomorrow's Premier League clash with Crystal Palace. Kurt Zouma and Gary Cahill are expected to be the starting center back tandem in Terry's absence according to The Standard.

In addition to losing his captain, Jose Mourinho could be without two more options against Palace. Oscar and Victor Moses are still carrying undisclosed injuries and are a doubt for the match.

With options limited, newly-acquired forward Kenedy could be in line for his club debut on Saturday.

Hopefully both players will be ready to go against Palace. If not, you can expect to see the same attacking setup that we saw last weekend with Eden Hazard, Pedro, and Willian playing behind Diego Costa.

When Oscar returns to fitness it will be interesting to see what first choice line-up Jose settles on. In the meantime, the club's depth is making the two injuries a little easier to overcome.

Here is the full provisional squad: Courtois, Begovic, Ivanovic, Rahman, Fabregas, Zouma, Ramires, Falcao, Hazard, Mikel, Traore, Pedro, Remy, Costa, Matic, Willian, Cahill, Blackman, Azpilicueta, Loftus-Cheek, Kenedy.
