Crystal Palace v Chelsea
When the Premier League restarts after the international break, Crystal Palace welcome Chelsea to Selhurst Park.
Chelsea will be keen to return to winning ways after a 1-0 defeat to Man City last time out.
As for Palace, the Eagles are pointless and goalless after seven Premier League matches.
Can the Eagles beat the drop? Right now Palace look dead-certs to be playing in the Championship next season.
Chelsea are sweating on the fitness of Alvaro Morata for the Palace game.
