Kick-off is at 1:30pm GMT. Live coverage of the match is available on BT Sport 1. Catch the highlights on Match of the Day 2 on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10:30pm GMT.


Palace were forced to settle for a goalless draw in their last two fixtures against Swansea City and AFC Bournemouth. The Eagles are undefeated in their last six matches and have conceded only three goals in the process.

Alan Pardew has seen his side struggle in recent times as they struggled to score, which could be a matter of worry for the former Newcastle United boss. Palace will be hoping to seal a win over the Blues when they face them at home on Sunday.

Chelsea enter this fixture after a second consecutive draw, with the last one coming against Manchester United at Old Trafford. Jose Mouinho was sacked and was replaced by Guus Hiddink as the first-team caretaker manager until the end of the season.

The Blues' new manager is yet to taste his first win of his second spell and he will be eyeing for three points when his side face Palace. A defeat or a draw will only put Hiddink under pressure for the upcoming fixtures.
