They trail Tottenham by five points with only nine games left in the season, and may have to settle for a Europa League place come the end of the season.

Palace, are in the relegation places, in 18th with just 27 points, one point behind Southampton and safety.

Chelsea: N'Golo Kante missed the 1-0 defeat to Manchester City on Sunday, and the Blues will hope to welcome him back.

Conte, however, claims last week's snow and cold weather were responsible for the scare and resumed training this week ahead of Saturday's Premier League match against Crystal Palace.

After successive defeats by Manchester City and Manchester United, injury-hit Palace proved to be the ideal opponents for Antonio Conte's side at Stamford Bridge. He didn't play a lot of games but despite this his commitment was incredible, he helped me a lot.

Wayne Hennessey was heavily involved early on, positioning himself well to keep out an attempt from Olivier Giroud and a couple from Willian.

Also, she said, "You have to think about family dynamics", among relatives who share your genes. The variants may also be associated with an increased risk for certain other cancers.

Both teams wasted good chances in an entertaining second half, starting with Alexander Sorloth two minutes after the restart when picking out the post once Andreas Christensen was caught in possession.

The Eagles have won back-to- back Premier League games at Stamford Bridge, after failing to win any of their first 13 at the ground in top-flight competition (D5 L8). His presence in the middle of the park ensures that Chelsea's creative forwards will enjoy more freedom in possession than they are used to. It is an important game and we want to try to get three points.

"We must pay great attention". They have fantastic players and are a brilliantly run club, a powerful club.

Roy Hodgson and Antonio Conte were in the opposite dugouts when England played Italy in a friendly in March 2015.

The hosts now sit in the relegation zone but a victory on Saturday could propel them out of the drop zone and give them a little bit more hope of stay up.

Defenders David Luiz (ankle) and Ethan Ampadu (hamstring) and midfielder Ross Barkley (hamstring) are out, but midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko is available again. Wilfried Zaha (knee injury) is still a week away, at least, while Mamadou Sakho (calf injury), Jason Puncheon and Connor Wickham (knee injuries) are still some distance from fitness.
