Is Crystal Palace vs Chelsea on TV? Channel, live stream, kick-off time and team news as Lukaku and Pulisic start

CHELSEA are back in Premier League action as they make the short trip south to Crystal Palace.

The Blues were in Abu Dhabi last week as they won the Club World Cup for the first time, edging out Palmeiras after extra time.

Next up they face a Palace side who haven't recorded a Premier League win in 2022.

The Eagles drew 0-0 at Brentford over the weekend and before that a comedy penalty miss from Wilfried Zaha saw them held to a 1-1 draw at Norwich.

And they will be without key man Conor Gallagher, as he is on loan from Chelsea.

Conor Gallagher is not playing for Crystal Palace as part of his loan agreement with Chelsea – so he cannot play against his parent club.

    Vieira focussed

    When you play big teams you have to lay well as a team. You have to accept to do the dirty work. You have to accept that you may not have the possession that you want. We will have to work well and hard to allow ourselves to get a result.

    League focus

    Asked about Chelsea's Premier League ambitions now this season:

    The most important game is against Crystal Palace then after that we go again switching competitions which is a good sign because it tells us we are in many competitions. We can’t get less passionate about what we do. Let’s keep going and push ourselves to the limit.

    Palace boost

    Patrick Viera's side will miss in-form Conor Gallagher who cannot play against his parent club today.

    They will welcome back Cheikhou Kouyate from AFCON duty where he helped Senegal win the trophy.

    The return of James McArthur will help fill the hole left by Gallagher along with fit again Will Hughes.

    One eye on Lille

    Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel will have Champions League action in his thoughts when it comes to today's game at Selhurst Park.

    There has not been a draw between these two teams in the last 21 meetings (Palace 4, Chelsea 17).

    Chelsea's defeat against West Ham in December ended a run of seven consecutive Premier League away wins in London derbies.

    Bridge boost

    Conor Gallagher is ineligible for Palace today against his parent club.

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek is available for Chelsea after an achilles injury.

    The ankle injury picked up by Mason Mount in Abu Dhabi will keep him out of the game today.

  • Kieran Davies

    Twelfth man

    Palace often seem a completely different proposition at Selhurst Park with the home fans really acting like an extra man when they get behind their team.

    The Eagles have not lost three top-flight home games on the bounce since July 2020.

    A victory for Palace today would see them win three games against top-four opposition in a single top-flight campaign for the first time ever, although they have lost both home games so far in 2022.

  • Kieran Davies

    Blue domination

    Chelsea have won their last 8 games against Crystal Palace.

    Their most recent Premier League win against Tottenham, was just a second win in eight top-flight matches.

    The Blues haven’t won back-to-back league games since October.

  • Kieran Davies

    Eagles to soar

    Palace can equal the club top-flight record of scoring in 12 successive home matches, set from February to October 1990.

    Should Viera’s side win today, it will be the first time Chelsea have lost back-to-back London derbies on the road since December 2017.

    Two of Crystal Palace’s five wins this season have come against teams starting the day in the top four (Tottenham and Man City).

    Welcome to Palace vs Chelsea

    Chelsea return victorious from the United Arab Emirates having won the Club World Cup with a 2-1 extra-time win against Palmeiras from Brazil.

    The Blues have not played in the Premier League since 22nd January but Thomas Tuchel’s side have had the luxury of 7 days off since their Abu Dhabi win and will be hoping his Chelsea side will be all refreshed for the challenge of Crystal Palace today.

    Pundits tipped Tuchel’s Chelsea to win the title this season but we were shown again that irrelevant to the depth of your squad, injuries in key areas end any hope of challenging for the Premier League crown.

    Long-term injuries to Reece James and Ben Chilwell hurt the West London outfit badly and the whole rhythm of their run of form at the time was severely damaged.

    Since then, they have fallen behind Man City and Liverpool and have had to look over their shoulder at the chasing pack behind them and will be looking to make a statement at Selhurst Park today.

    Palace are on their worst run of the season having only managed three points from their last five games.

    The Eagles have only won one of their last sixteen Premier League London derbies.
