Crystal Palace will hope to utilise their home advantage to help bridge the gap to today’s opponents. The home side are currently 13 points behind Chelsea.

It’s a hectic schedule for the away team, as they were in action only three days ago in the Champions League. That game was also an away game, at Porto. It will be interesting to see if they are fully ready and rested for this match, and/or if some changes in the lineup is necessary.

This is a local derby, usually meaning added tension and importance.
