Conte insists he trusts Chelsea duo

Chelsea Team News Injuries suspensions and line-up vs Crystal Palace

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte on not overlooking Palace: "They [Palace] lost the last couple of games". They are 18th in the league with 27 points on board.

Meanwhile, Olivier Giroud has performed well at Chelsea in his brief appearances.

Chelsea have been handed a major injury boost before their crucial Premier League clash against Crystal Palace with Blues boss Antonio Conte revealing defensive midfielder N'Golo Kante is fit again after suffering a scare last week. Barcelona whom the Blues face on Wednesday, would have taken good advantage of.

Palace had managed to net in six consecutive away outings heading into this match, and they almost extended that tally through Andros Townsend's sweeping finish from the edging of the box, picking out the roof of the opposition net.

With Pedro struggling so badly, and Alvaro Morata presently out of favour up front, Willian has also provided Hazard with the kind of partner he needs to work his magic in and around the box.

Zaha has been a standout performer for the Eagles this season, scoring four league goals and registering one assist, while creating a further 34 chances for his teammates. There is Benteke. There are many good players in this squad.

DF Andrea Christensen, 6 - Culpable of some wayward distribution and was dispossessed too easily at times, with one mistake leading to Sorloth hammering the ball against Chelsea's post.

DF Gary Cahill, 6 - Restored to Chelsea's starting XI and captainship, Cahill put in a shift of robust tackling and blocking.

The Brazilian winger was in superb form as Chelsea controlled the match, although a late consolation from Patrick van Aanholt set up a nervous finale.

Chelsea have slipped slightly off the pace of the top four sides, with two recent losses, 2-1 to Chelsea and 1-0 to Manchester City, to head into this game five points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur. Did enough defensively to restrict Andros Townsend. They will be looking to close the gap though, as they host Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Chelsea deservedly received scathing criticism for their extraordinarily negative approach in last week's 1-0 defeat at champions elect Manchester City. "Then I have to decide who has to go on the bench". They will be under pressure against the likes of Kante and Fabregas. He's been poor for a prolonged period now and is not performing at the level at which is required. Hazard, Giroud, and Willian to score.

Roy Hodgson's men have scored in all of their last six away matches, having started the season without a goal in their opening eight games on the road.

"I think the work rate that I am delivering to the team is a lot".
