Pulling ahead in top 4 race and 3 other strong reasons why Chelsea must beat Palace
Chelsea host Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday.
Last game before the break
The final international break of 2019 is almost upon us and Chelsea will be looking to head into it on a back of a Premier League win.
Pulling ahead in top 4 race
The Blues are currently joint-third in the table along with Leicester City, who play fifth-placed Arsenal on Saturday. Depending on the result of that game, Chelsea can cement their place in the top 4.
Palace's record against the Blues
Crystal Palace have only won two of their 17 top-flight away fixtures against the Blues so expect Frank Lampard's side to be on the front foot at Stamford Bridge.
Kante is back
N'Golo Kante is set to make his long-awaited injury return on Sunday and the Frenchman will be looking to make an immediate impact against the Eagles.
