After the exciting encounter with Ajax in midweek, a fixture that’ll long be remembered courtesy of Chelsea’s amazing fight-back, it is back to the Premier League this lunchtime when Chelsea welcome Crystal Palace to Stamford Bridge.
It’s one of those games that could quite easily be considered to be a banana-skin with Crystal Palace having won on two occasions at Stamford Bridge, both by a 2-1 scoreline, in recent times.
Chelsea will also enter this fixture without Jorginho with the influential midfielder serving a suspension after picking up 5 yellow cards already this season. Throw in the fact that Mason Mount is also expected to miss the encounter with an ankle injury, and you can see the problems are mounting up for Frank Lampard.
As is the norm, we’re running our Match Day Moments feature where we invite you to leave your opinion, in our comment facility, on a variety of subjects including but not limited to:
1 – The build-up to this intriguing London derby.
2 – The starting eleven selected by Frank Lampard.
3 – The action as it happens at Stamford Bridge.
4 – Your thoughts in the immediate aftermath of the final whistle sounding.
Here’s hoping by the time the remainder of the fixtures kick-off, us Chelsea supporters are celebrating another win.
