Chelsea full squad for clash against Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge

All Chelsea full squad players available to Frank Lampard ahead of the Premier League clash against Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea can bounce back from their Carabao Cup exit when they face Crystal Palace this afternoon.

It’s been a mixed start to the new season for the west London outfit.

After beating Brighton and Hove Albion they were beaten 2-0 at home by Liverpool and needed a second half comeback to earn a point against West Brom last weekend.

Either side of the last Premier League game the Blues have thrashed Barnsley 6-0 in the Carabao Cup third round, only to crash out of the competition on penalties against Tottenham Hotspur earlier in the week.

But they now have the chance to avoid going three games without a win across all competitions when they host a Palace side that has already beaten Manchester United on their travels this season.

The Blues will go into the game at Stamford Bridge with the knowledge that Christian Pulisic is back in the squad following injury, but head coach Frank Lampard has confirmed Hakim Ziyech is still unavailable.

Pulisic is in the squad tomorrow,” Lampard revealed in his pre-match press conference. “He won’t start the match because of the injury he has had and it has been a difficult injury.

“I am very keen to get him back in there so it is great to have him back, he is an important player for us.

“Hakim Ziyech is getting closer but not quite fit enough to be on the bench.”
