Chelsea are looking to make it back-to-back wins when they face Crystal Palace tonight.
Frank Lampard’s side bounced back from the 3-2 defeat to West Ham with a comfortable 3-0 win over Watford on Saturday.
The result keeps the Blues in the top four, and they travel to Selhurst Park on Tuesday looking to maintain their push for Champions League qualification.
Squad-wise, Lampard will be without N’Golo Kante after the Chelsea midfielder injured his hamstring against Watford.

“Kante won’t be in the squad,” Lampard said in his pre-match conference.
“Hurt his hamstring. A low-level hamstring, so we’re hoping it is a week or so.”
Mateo Kovacic is back in full training, but Lampard revealed that the Croatian international is also not ready for the game.
“Kovacic trained with us today but not ready for this game. Hopefully the next. And Tomori is still not ready. He had a small setback in training. Hopefully next week.”
When asked whether he was pleased with how his side have “got back on track”, Lampard said he was only focused on taking it game-by-game.
“I’m not sure they were off track. And I’m not sure we’re back on track because every game is another obstacle.
