Where to watch live

Is this the day that Chelsea claim their fourth Premier League title and make it five domestic English titles in their history?

Chelsea need just three points to lift the crown and make it mathematically impossible for chasing teams to lay their hands on the title, and it is Crystal Palace standing between them and the champions crown.

Jose Mourinho has called on his team to remain calm in what can be an emotional day, and will hope that his team can wrap up the season without any hiccups. He is still without his two main strikers Diego Costa and Loic Remy and will have to rely on Didier Drogba to come forth and deliver.

Meanwhile, Crystal Palace will look to make the near-champions wait a little longer to celebrate the title as Alan Pardew will target an upset at Stamford Bridge.

The Eagles can go to 11<sup>th place with a win here, as their recent losses to West Bromwich Albion and Hull City have derailed their hopes of a top-10 finish. Alan Pardew's next three games are against Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool, and they could have a major impact on which teams finish in the top four as well.

What managers say

Jose Mourinho: "We need two or three points to be champions. Let's say three to make sure we don't depend on goal difference. We need a victory or we need three points with three draws. Obviously we want to finish as soon as possible. If we can do it at home, better. If we can do it on Sunday, even better. That's what we have in our minds."

Alan Pardew: "Our solution this week has been to work hard. Work on our fitness levels, our technical skills and our team shape. On Tuesday we stopped doing ball work and did some running. I think they enjoyed that! They will dominate possession and the two thirds of the pitch that we have to defend, but we carry a threat."
