    Chelsea Predicted XI: We predict Thomas Tuchel’s starting XI as Chelsea travel to Crystal Palace in the Premier League | Shoot

    Chelsea Predicted XI: We predict Thomas Tuchel’s starting XI as Chelsea travel to Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

    The Blues will be aiming to forget their last Premier League outing as quickly as possible, after their crushing 5-2 defeat suffered at home to West Brom last weekend.

    Some credit has to be given to the West Londoners who managed to turn that dismal performance around quickly with a very good display in the win against Porto in the Champions League midweek.

    Chelsea currently sit one point behind  fourth-placed West Ham United, but with four clubs within just five points will know that they still have a battle ahead to secure Champions League football.

    Tuchel has utilised his squad so far, but given the inconsistencies his side have shown in recent weeks, will he want to name a more solid and secure starting XI?

    So which XI will the German select to take on Roy Hodgson’s Eagles?

    Here we predict the Chelsea starting line-up vs Crystal Palace…

    Goalkeeper:

    Mendy is proving a great singing.

    Goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has proved to be one of Chelsea’s better summer signings to date. The Senegal international has helped solidify the Blues and is a certainty to start this afternoon. Especially given reports of a training ground bust-up between Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger and second choice keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

    Defenders:

    Thiago Silva could be back in the squad.

    We fully expect Tuchel to go with his preferred back-three supported by two wing backs. Cesar Azpilicueta has been a regular under the German and will again skipper the side. Alongside him should sit Andreas Christensen while, on the left side of the Antonio Rudiger should keep his place after retuning against Porto in midweek.

    At wing-back, Reece James should start after Callum Hudson-Odoi was sent home from England’s Under-21 Euro camp with an injury, while Marcos Alonso may get the nod on the left side with Ben Chilwell given a rest.
