Giroud starts against Palace as Hazard makes 200th Premier League appearance

The Brazil global shone in the Champions League last-16 first leg at Stamford Bridge when his brilliance deserved more than his solitary goal in the 1-1 draw.

The Blues sit five points out of Tottenham Hotspur - fourth place - while Palace is one of seven sides in the bottom half of England's top flight firmly in the relegation race.

Chelsea deservedly received scathing criticism for their extraordinarily negative approach in last week's 1-0 defeat at champions elect Manchester City.

Speaking ahead of the Crystal Palace game, Conte spoke about his attacking options, improvements needed in that department and the need to reduce the mistakes which have been plaguing us in the past few weeks.

Zaha returned to the Palace squad following more than a month on the sidelines with a knee injury, but had to wait until half time to be introduced when he replaced Christian Benteke.

Chelsea had lost just four out of the first twenty-one matches in the league and since then, have gone to lose four in just our last eight games.

Willian is Chelsea's in-form player with four goals in the past four games, and could provide the spark for a potentially big result against a struggling Palace side.

"HT Palace sub: he's back". A win on Saturday will not be an instant panacea for Chelsea's wretched 2018 to date but it will be a start.

Palace's last win in the Premier League came in mid-January when they beat Burnley.

In a flawless world, witnessing a decent performance would also be important especially with the return leg against Barcelona in the Champions League looming on Wednesday.

Crystal Palace are [13.0] outsiders for this game but perhaps should not be dismissed out of hand. "I hope in my heart to see him in this 11, to continue this performance because he is playing very well".

The draw is on offer at [5.9] but the last 13 clashes between the teams have failed to produce a stalemate. Palace have drawn nine games in the league this season but only one of these has come against teams in the top nine of the division. We are backing Eden Hazard as our prediction in this market, and he is available for similar odds at Coral. It is a steep learning curve from which the 21-year-old will undeniably benefit in the long term, though the sooner he can start knitting together an entire 90 minutes the better, both for himself as an individual and the team as a whole. Which TV channel will have the Chelsea vs Crystal Palace match live?

The hosts responded by crafting another fine chance of their own - Willian embarking on a remarkable solo run, before exchanging passes with Giroud and seeing his eventual shot crucially blocked just in front of the goal.
