Chelsea enter this afternoon’s fixture in high spirits after their successful Champions League clash with Steaua Bucharest in midweek, but they may face a stern task as they take on Tony Pulis’ reinvigorated Crystal Palace side.

Jose Mourinho names a changed side from the one that was prosperous in the week, with Fernando Torres back in in place of Demba Ba. Willian retains his place, while Frank Lampard drops to the bench with Michael Essien handed a start.

Cameron Jerome and Marouane Chamakh will once again get a chance to build on the burgeoning partnership. Barry Bannan also features for the Eagles, while Jason Puncheon maintains his place in the starting XI.
