CHELSEA make the short trip to Crystal Palace tonight hoping to make it back-to-back Premier League wins.
Frank Lampard’s men hit back from their shock loss to West Ham with a 3-0 victory over Watford, barely getting out of second gear in the process.
They will face a Palace side who have lost their last three top-flight games on the spin, extinguishing any hopes of a late-season European push.
Roy Hodgson’s men have failed to score in that run of defeats but do boast a decent record against the visitors, beating them 2-1 here in 2017.

- Part of a packed midweek schedule, this Premier League clash will be held on Tuesday, July 7.
- Kick-off at Selhurst Park is at 6pm GMT.
- When Chelsea visited this ground last in December 2018, they left with all three points after a strike from N’Golo Kante.
