Chelsea v Crystal Palace - Match Officials
This Saturday evening, Chelsea welcome Crystal Palace to Stamford Bridge for a Premier League fixture.
Selected as the late afternoon 'live` game, I`d imagine that those who are in charge of that process will be hoping that Chelsea perform with a little more verve and ambition than they did, last time out, against Manchester City, where the words 'meek surrender` spring to mind.
Crystal Palace, having beaten Chelsea at Selhurst Park, earlier this season, will be looking to do a home and away double over their more illustrious London neighbours, surely Chelsea will be able to prevent that.
