Palace could pinch consolation at Stamford Bridge
Three successive wins have lifted Crystal Palace four points clear of the drop zone but their mini-revival is highly likely to end at Stamford Bridge.
Palace's confidence is on the rise and they may cause Chelsea problems with the pace and trickery of Wilfried Zaha and the aerial threat of Christian Benteke.
However, Chelsea have the knack of winning difficult games and should prevail in an entertaining London derby.
Chelsea win and both teams to score
1pt 13-5 general
Eden Hazard (calf) and Thibaut Courtois (hip) are both in contention.
Patrick van Aanholt (ankle) is out, Loic Remy cannot face his parent club and Fraizer Campbell (hamstring) and James McArthur (back) are doubts.
Chelsea have not kept a clean sheet in their last seven league matches.
