Crystal Palace look to avoid sliding into a relegation battle this early in the season, as they sit 16th in the Premier League table after six games, but hold a game in hand over many other teams due to sporting cancellations after the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
With high hopes lofted on the shoulders of Graham Potter at his new club, can Patrick Vieira buck a trend Crystal Palace have against their London neighbours - the team haven’t beaten Chelsea in five previous meetings.
How did the London clubs fare in their last games?
Crystal Palace made the trip up to the North-East of England before the international break, taking on Newcastle United at St. James Park. Despite Crystal Palace having 9 shots on target the game played out to a 0-0 stalemate.
Despite the Chelsea team coming back from behind the win 2-1, the major talking point of the game and the whole Premier League weekend was the quality of VAR decisions made; West Ham saw a goal ruled out for offside in injury time despite it not being a clear and obvious error.
