Chelsea boss Sarri focused exclusively on Palace as Premier League record looms

Chelsea boss Sarri focused exclusively on Palace as Premier League record looms

Chelsea FC signed Croatia global Mateo Kovacic, Napoli star Jorginho, veteran England goalkeeper Rob Green and Athletic Bilbao shot stopper Kepa Arrizabalaga in the 2018 summer transfer window.

Maurizio Sarri's side now sit third in the table - two points adrift of joint leaders Manchester City and Liverpool - following last weekend's win at Burnley so Chelsea will be desperate to maintain the pressure with another victory in west London on Sunday. The Spaniard controlled the ball beautifully in the penalty area.

But while Maurizio Sarri's men looked to have settled into the game, they failed to press home the advantage and were made to pay seven minutes into the second half.

Chelsea went close with a couple of headers, from Morata and Luiz, before Sarri called for his trump card.

The Belgium playmaker's free-kick bounced through to Morata at the far post. Had he been partnered by a proper striker, then who knows what might have possible in this game and where they might sit in the table, instead of 14th with only eight goals to their name. 3-1 to Chelsea. Pedro wanders into the box and latches onto the cross from Alonso! Andros Townsend broke our defensive line and drilled the ball low and hard into Kepa Arrizabalaga's goal.

32- Goal! Chelsea takes the lead!

Alvaro Morata continued his recent goalscoring run.

After joining Chelsea in August 2012, Moses was farmed out on loan to Liverpool, Stoke City and West Ham United before the arrival of The Blues' former manager, Antonio Conte. A win or draw today will mean that Chelsea will be eleven games undefeated in the league.

Predicted Crystal Palace XI: Hennessey; Wan-Bissaka, Tomkins, Sakho, van Aanholt; Milivojevic; McArthur, Kouyate; Townsend, Ayew, Zaha. However, since 2015/16, Zaha has been booked four times for diving in the Premier League, more than any other player. Jordan Ayew drops to the bench and is replaced by German playmaker Max Meyer.

"And they have a plan in place to sign Eden Hazard". Apart from that it's the same side that beat Burnley 4-0 last time out in the league.

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson is delighted for Ruben Loftus-Cheek over his impact with Chelsea this season.

Jason Puncheon was afforded a rare opportunity in the Crystal Palace first team on Wednesday night, starting against Middlesbrough as the Eagles fell to a League Cup defeat.
