Antonio Conte has named a largely expected starting eleven with Tiemoue Bakayoko and Michy Batshuayi coming in for the game against Crystal Palace.
Chelsea have named a very strong starting eleven despite missing a few key players with injuries. Tiemoue Bakayoko takes the place of N’Golo Kante in the middle of the park while Michy Batshuayi has been entrusted with the duties upfront in Alvaro Morata’s absence.

Eden Hazard will have to step up for his team in the absence of the two outstanding performers for the Blues so far this season – Kante and Morata. The Belgian though, will have the support of Willian, who has also been chosen ahead of Pedro.
