Chelsea FC XI vs Crystal Palace: Confirmed squad news, expected line-up, Premier League injury latest today

N’Golo Kante, Edouard Mendy and Marc Cucurella have all been ruled out. The front two are both back in training but are still recovering from hamstring and knee injuries so are too far from sharpness to feature at Selhurst Park.

Cucurella has been stricken with an unspecified illness, and summer colleague Carney Chukwuemeka will also miss the Palace clash for the same reason.

Kepa Arrizabalaga will then get the nod in goal, with Mateo Kovacic joining Jorginho as midfield two. Ben Chilwell will assume the left-back role.

The top three are expected to remain the same with Mason Mount and Raheem Sterling backing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The trip will be Potter’s first Premier League game as manager, nearly a month after his appointment, due to reports surrounding the Queen’s death and subsequent international hiatus.

Chelsea predicted XI: Kepa; Fofana, Silva, Koulibaly; James, Jorginho, Kovacic, Chilwell; Mount, Aubameyang, Sterling
