Mauricio Pochettino has made just one change to his Chelsea side for this evening's Premier League fixture against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

The Blues got back to winning ways last time out, with a 3-1 victory recorded against Aston Villa in the FA Cup. Now the focus is on regaining momentum in the Premier League after back-to-back defeats.

Pochettino has opted against making major alterations to the Chelsea side that was so impressive at Villa Park, with only one player who started that game not in tonight's side.

Djordje Petrovic continues in goal for the Blues. It is the Serbia international's 13th consecutive start since coming into the side for the injured Robert Sanchez.

Malo Gusto begins on the right of a back four while Ben Chilwell, who captains the side, is at left-back. Our only change comes in central defence with Axel Disasi being partnered by Thiago Silva, who replaces the injured Benoit Badiashile.

Moises Caicedo and Enzo Fernandez both impressed in our victory over Aston Villa and they keep their respective places in midfield.

Conor Gallagher starts on his return to Selhurst Park; the Chelsea Academy graduate enjoyed an impressive loan spell with the Eagles during the 2021/22 season.

Noni Madueke keeps his place on the right of the Chelsea attack while Nicolas Jackson is expected to continue off the left. Cole Palmer, who has scored 12 goals this season for the Blues, will be deployed through the middle.

There is a place among the Chelsea substitutes for Levi Colwill after his return from injury while Trevoh Chalobah is back in the matchday squad for the first time this season after overcoming the hamstring injury he sustained during our summer tour of the USA.

Chelsea: Petrovic; Gusto, Disasi, Silva, Chilwell (c); Caicedo, Fernandez; Madueke, Gallagher, Jackson; Palmer

Chelsea substitutes: Bergstrom, Chalobah, Colwill, Gilchrist, Chukwuemeka, Casadei, Sterling, Mudryk, Nkunku
