After failing to progress in the EFL Cup, Chelsea will hope to pick up their first home victory in the Premier League as they host Crystal Palace. Live Soccer TV's match preview provides global broadcast listings, team news, and match facts for Chelsea vs Crystal Palace.

Preview: Chelsea vs Crystal Palace

After a disappointing result in the Carabao Cup that saw them lose on spot-kicks to Tottenham, Chelsea will be looking to regroup and refocus in what will be their first match of October. Having lost 2-0 to reigning champs Liverpool in their first home Premier League match, the Blues will be looking to avoid making it back to back defeats as they prepare to host Crystal Palace.

Crystal Palace, however, will have other ideas when they arrive at Chelsea's home base. Despite losing their most recent fixture 2-1 to Everton, Roy Hodgson's men notably beat Manchester United 3-1 at Old Trafford this season, and will be looking to become only the second team in Premier League history (after Sunderland in 2014) to successfully win back to back road fixtures at Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea haven't lost two straight home games since the 1978/1979 season - and they ended up being relegated at the end of that horrible campaign. Of course, that's not likely to happen this time around, but having won their last five consecutive games with Palace, Frank Lampard's men will certainly want to keep that good streak going this weekend.

Crystal Palace currently sit in sixth spot on six points, while Chelsea find themselves just inside the top half of the table with four points. The Blues, however, could move up to fourth - albeit temporarily - with a victory here, while Palace could actually move up into a Champions League berth if they can pick up their first win over Chelsea since 2017, which just so happened to be Hodgson's first match in charge of his current side.

Team news: Chelsea vs Crystal Palace

Chelsea: Ben Chilwell could finally make an appearance here in what would be his Premier League debut for his new side. In addition, Christian Pulisic has reportedly recovered in time to be included in the matchday squad for this upcoming game, but the American international only be involved as a sub - if he does play at all.

New signing Hakim Ziyech have resumed some light training and is close to a recovery but won't be fit to feature until after the international break. but youngster Billy Gilmour is still out with a knee injury.  Meanwhile, new goalkeeper Edouard Mendy will likely be in between the posts for his first ever Premier League appearance after a solid showing during the Blues' EFL cup tie - meaning that Kepa Arrizabalaga will be relegated to the bench.

Antonio Rudiger and Ruben Loftus-Cheek have both been linked with moves away from the club before this transfer period is over, so neither are likely to feature at all. Another player who could be on his way out is Marcos Alonso, who was subbed off after a dismal performance during Chelsea's awful first half against West Brom. Finally, Timo Werner may have to miss out after suffering a cramp that prevented him from participating in Chelsea's failed shoot-out attempt against Tottenham mid-week, and will have to pass a late fitness test to determine his availability.

Crystal Palace: Michy Batshuayi will not be eligible to feature in this match due to a clause in his loan contract from Chelsea. In addition, both Jeffrey Schlupp and Scott Dann missed out during their team's narrow loss to Everton recently, but the visitors could possibly welcome Christian Benteke back after he made a cameo appearance during their most recent match. Finally, veteran defender Gary Cahill won't be able to feature against his former colleagues as he's still not fully recovered from injury.
