Wilfried Zaha returns for Crystal Palace in Chelsea loss

Wilfried Zaha celebrates the 3-0 victory over Leicester City Wilfried Zaha celebrates the 3-0 victory over Leicester City

Terry paid a visit to Chelsea's training ground in Cobham this week to try to lift morale with the club having lost four of their last five league games to sit fifth in the table. Here is our predicted XI. Morata is coming from a unusual injury in his back, he was out for a long time.

Chelsea made the early running in a muted Stamford Bridge atmosphere and nearly broke the deadlock after only nine minutes when Wayne Hennessey kept out an effort from N'Golo Kante as striker Olivier Giroud tried to make contact just in front of him.

The reigning champions lost to Manchester United and Manchester City in their last two games, but things were rather more straightforward this time around and they should have claimed a more comprehensive win over Palace given the number of chances they created.

Wilfried Zaha (knee) and Mamadou Sakho (calf) will both undergo late fitness tests but Joel Ward, Scott Dann, Yohan Cabaye, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Jason Puncheon, Bakary Sako, Connor Wickham and Julian Speroni are all out.

The key for Chelsea in these types of games is getting Eden Hazard in possession as much as possible; against City, he led the line and was on the periphery of the encounter. There are three players for two places. "The best way sometimes is to speak with the players and to try to find together the right plan to face this game".

The French midfielder is a bundle of energy. They deserved more against Tottenham and against United. "The player and I must have patience". Palace have drawn nine games in the league this season but only one of these has come against teams in the top nine of the division.

Palace squandered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to Manchester United at Selhurst Park on Monday night after Nemanja Matic scored a victor in the fourth minute of added time.

Chelsea's back three is not the impenetrable brick wall it was for large parts of their title-winning season past year.
