A win for Chelsea would move them onto 25 points and six points off the Europa League places.

Ahead of the tie, Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino has provided a team news update on his side:

“Enzo no but we hope Moi yes,” replied the Argentine when asked about the South American duo’s chances of playing against Palace.

“Moi was better on Sunday. He had a high fever and that is why he isolated. We hope he can train a little bit and be ready for Palace.

“We need to assess Lesley; I think he felt his hamstring again [against Wolves]. You have to be careful introducing players coming back from injuries, but the problem of Moi meant it was a difficult situation.”

Pochettino contiued: “The frustration and disappointment is there. I promise all the people we are working so hard, and the medical staff and the performance area are working really hard to try to anticipate and avoid these problems.

“Sometimes it’s the profile of the player, sometimes it’s bad luck, sometimes it’s not the same for a 19 or 20-year-old who arrived from France like in Lesley’s case, and we expect he plays and performs for Chelsea in the Premier League.”
