Chelsea take on fellow Midtable hopefuls Crystal Palace in what feels like a potential pivot point not only for the season but also beyond. Chelsea are as far/close to relegation as we are to the top-four (4 points each). Which way will we go?

Potter has chosen to give Benoît Badiashile his debut, either in a back-three or a back-four, depending on where Hall (LWB or LB) and Gallagher (RWB or Mid, with Chalobah at RB) play. Young Chukwuemeka finally gets a start while RLC also makes a welcome return from injury on the bench. UPDATE: it’s a back-four.

Here we go!

Chelsea starting lineup (4-3-3):
Arrizabalaga | Hall, Badiashile, Silva, Chalobah | Chukwuemeka, Jorginho (c), Gallagher | Mount, Havertz, Ziyech

Substitutes from: Bettinelli, Azpilicueta, Cucurella, Humphreys, Koulibaly, Kovačić, Loftus-Cheek, Aubameyang, D.Fofana
