Predicted Chelsea lineup (4-3-3) to face Crystal Palace, Hazard and Barkley start

Predicted Chelsea XI vs Crystal Palace

Chelsea will be aiming to maintain their unbeaten start to the Premier League season when they entertain Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

Formation: 4-3-3

Predicted Lineup:

Kepa Arrizabalaga has remained a constant in goal for the Blues in the Premier League this campaign and he should once more maintain his position between the sticks.

In defence, Sarri should revert to the regulars for the top-flight and this should witness Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso in the full-backs with David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger occupying the heart of the defence.

Likewise in midfield, N'Golo Kante and Jorginho should retain their positions having being ever-present for the league duties and they are likely to be accompanied by Ross Barkley, who has been simply sublime of late with three goals and two assists from just three league matches.

Onto the attack, Eden Hazard appears to have recovered from a back problem after participating in training and the Belgian's return should see him slot into the left wing position.

Other than that, Willian could take up his regular right wing role with Alvaro Morata leading the line for the third straight game ahead of Olivier Giroud, who has been struggling with leg fatigue recently.
