Chelsea will resume their Premier League fixtures following a clash with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday Afternoon as both teams look to grab all three points. The Blues come into the match on the back of a 1-1 draw against RB Salzburg in the UCL group stages, so they will be looking to bounce back. Similarly, the Seagulls were also held to a goalless draw against Newcastle United sitting in sixteenth place on the Premier League table.
