Palace always turns into Barcelona against us, but in this new offensive system we will allow them very little.

Morata playing the full 90 last night was a good sign. Zaha will undoubtedly turn into prime Cristiano Ronaldo for the day but as @True Blue mentioned, given our form and new style, we should have more than enough to secure three points. 

Giroud

Hazard---------------Pedro

Barkley----Kante

Jorginho

Alonso---Luiz----Rudiger----Dave

Kepa

Eden Hazard is fit to return from injury. That's nice  I'm sure Kevin DeBruyne will make a miraculous recovery in time to play us too.

1-0 at the half. Morata

Started off slow, but picked up the tempo after a few Palace scares. Our midfield three have been good and Kante in particular given he's broke a few Palace counter attacks. 

Lack of width hurting us. Dave doesn't like to push up and Alonso is a turtle. 

Need to kill this game of whilst we can.

Chelsea another one to get a fortunate offside decision this weekend. Goal should have been ruled out, Morata clearly interfering and only reason the ball was headed away as it was.

1-1. Palace equalise through Townsend. Where was Luiz going? Caught ball-watching and ball-chasing leaving acres for Townsend to run in to.

What? It's offside. Ball played in towards Morata who's standing offside. Player heads it away under pressure because he's there. Should have been spotted

Wolves got robbed yesterday when they had a goal incorrectly ruled out

Morata brings us back ahead

Agreed - said in the match thread we got away with one. As did you with Mane's goal. Chelsea now added to the list. All three of us fortunate

Fabregas coming on for Jorginho. 

I know @carefreeluke has been skeptical that Sarri was known for his lack of rotation at Napoli, but it hasn't been an issue here. Lots of options to choose from compared to at Napoli.

Nah, onside, the goal wouldn't have been given otherwise, so you're obvviously wrong and just doing your painful 'fishing' again

Pedro has always reminded me of:

Pedro is a roadrunner, one of my favourite Chelsea players. Shame he's getting on a bit. Does one of those runs every match guaranteed. The man plays like he's on drugs.
