  • Chelsea host Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Sunday.
  • We predict how Maurizio Sarri could lineup for the game.
  • What do you think, Blues? Let us know on Twitter @TalkChelsea.

Chelsea host Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon, with Maurizio Sarri hoping to continue his unprecedented unbeaten run in the Premier League.

Never in Chelsea history has a manager begun his time in the Premier League without suffering defeat in any of his opening ten games. Sarri’s Blues have been quick out the blocks this term, and our position in the table reflects that.

With Liverpool and Arsenal, two of the league’s most in-form teams, facing off against each other later today, this is an opportunity for us to take advantage of the guarantee that at least one of our direct rivals will be dropping points.

With Chelsea having only edged past Derby County midweek, Sarri will no doubt be keen to ensure complacency isn’t creeping in, and we don’t believe he will be pulling any punches with his starting eleven.

Physio Room suggest that this game may have come too soon for Hazard to be able to be named as part of the starting eleven, so Ruben Loftus-Cheek could play out wide once again, with our team looking something like this. What do you think, Blues?

Hazard is expected to be back. Huge boost for Chelsea. I am lucky I have purevpn to unblock bt sport from outside uk. Can’t wait for the kick off.

Love the team. Plenty of firepower, we need to find an alternative to Hazard and Loftus-Cheek needs his chances. Let’s play it
