Two London teams will meet as Crystal Palace host Chelsea on their return from the FIFA Club World Cup. Connor Gallagher, who is on loan at Palace, will not be able to feature against his parent club, but Patrick Viera should still have a strong squad at his disposal as his side look to break out of their five-game winless run. Chelsea will be quite a challenge here but the Blues have been responsive as they have only scored multiple goals twice in their last five Premier League games.

Here are the scenarios, how you can watch the game and more:

Scenarios

Crystal Palace: Palace’s hot start dried up as the defense wasn’t good enough to hold a lead. The hope is that Cheikhou Kouyate’s return to the squad after Senegal’s Africa Cup of Nations title will help bring the defense back to where Viera expects it to be. Without Gallagher, Odesonne Edouard and Michael Olise will be called upon to support Wilfred Zaha but each will have to be on his game to hang on to Chelsea.

Chelsea: With Mason Mount sidelined until at least the EFL Cup final next week, Chelsea’s lack of creativity will be a bigger problem than normal. The Blues are lacking Reece James in their powerful attacking back, having scored just five goals in four games since suffering a hamstring injury. The hope is that Christian Pulisic will provide an attacking directness that the team sorely lacks as Romelu Lukaku’s offer dries up.

Prediction

Palace will hang around while Wilfred Zaha is on the scoresheet, but that won’t be enough as Chelsea get a late winner. Take: Crystal Palace 1, Chelsea 2
