New, comments

Game time!  Welcome to Jose Mourinho's 200th Premier League match, and 100th at Stamford Bridge.


Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Thibaut Courtois | César Azpilicueta, Kurt Zouma, Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic | Cesc Fàbregas, Nemanja Matic | Eden Hazard, Willian, Pedro | Diego Costa

Substitutes from: Asmir Begovic, Baba Rahman, John Obi Mikel, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Kenedy, Loïc Rémy, Radamel Falcao

Crystal Palace starting lineup (4-2-3-1)
Alex McCarthy | Pape Souaré, Damien Delaney, Scott Dann, Joel Ward | Yohan Cabaye, James McArthur | Bakary Sako, Jason Puncheon, Wilfried Zaha | Connor Wickham

Substitutes from: Wayne Hennessey, Adrian Mariappa, Joe Ledley, Yannick Bolasie, Jordon Mutch, Lee Chung-yong, Dwight Gayle


Mourinho rolls with the same lineup as last week (adjusting for the lack of Terry, obviously); don't mess with success.  The bench once again has a very young look to it, with new boys Baba and Kenedy both making their first appearances in the matchday squad.
