Chelsea’s starting eleven to face Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge this afternoon has been announced, with Eden Hazard being named on the bench.

The Blues are currently unbeaten in the Premier League, with Maurizio Sarri setting a new club-record in making it this far without suffering defeat. His start to life in England has been electric, and things are only going to improve from here.

Chelsea’s team is not perfect. There’s creases that Sarri will be hoping to iron out, but when you have players like Hazard at your disposal, there is no roof on how much your team can achieve. Unfortunately, he won’t be featuring.

Still, this, on paper, is another game that we should be winning. We need to in order to keep the pressure on Manchester City and Liverpool at the top. However, Palace, and particularly teams managed by Roy Hodgson, are often tough nuts to crack.

This is the Chelsea team that’s tasked with cracking the Eagles today. What do you think, Blues? Let us know whether this side will get the job done, even without Hazard, on Twitter @TalkChelsea.
