Mauricio Pochettino news

Predicted Chelsea line-up vs Crystal Palace tonight

Chelsea will be aiming to return to winning ways when they host Crystal Palace in the Premier League tonight.

The Blues have picked up only three points from their last four matches and manager Mauricio Pochettino will be expecting a strong performance in the derby.

Ahead of the game, it has already been confirmed that Enzo Fernandez and Lesley Ugochukwu are injured while Moises Caicedo is deemed doubtful due to fever.

Predicted Line-up:

Djordje Petrovic made his full Premier League debut in the Wolves defeat. He had a solid outing and was let down by the defence. He should continue in goal with Robert Sanchez injured.

In the backline, we anticipate Malo Gusto to start in the right back position with Levi Colwill on the opposite end. Axel Disasi could partner Benoit Badiashile in central defence with Thiago Silva being rested.

In midfield, Caicedo could be deemed fit to start in the number six role. We anticipate Conor Gallagher to accompany him. The Englishman should lead the side with Reece James injured.

Further forward, there will be a couple of enforced changes with Raheem Sterling and Cole Palmer suspended. We anticipate Mykhailo Mudryk and Noni Madueke to replace the duo.

Christopher Nkunku scored in his Premier League debut off the bench at Wolves, but he could be handed another cameo with Pochettino likely to handle him with caution after his knee injury.

Predicted Chelsea line-up (4-2-3-1): Petrovic; Gusto, Disasi, Badiashile, Colwill; Caicedo, Gallagher; Madueke, Jackson, Mudryk; Broja.
