Chelsea will be looking to extend their unbeaten start to the English Premier League season under new boss Maurizio Sarri when London rivals Crystal Palace are the visitors to Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The Blues have won seven and drawn three of their opening 10 matches in the top flight this term and a fight to win back their league crown looks to be a real possibility.

Chelsea go into their latest match with attacker Eden Hazard available for selection once again following a back problem. Manager Sarri is expected to select a similar side to the one which won so impressively at Burnley last weekend.

Sunday’s opponents Crystal Palace arrive in SW6 without a win in their last five matches in all competitions and have already lost six times in the league.

The Eagles have no new injury concerns ahead of the match at The Bridge but manager Roy Hodgson is sweating over the fitness of forward Wilfried Zaha who is continuing to recover from a shoulder injury.

Both sides won their respective home fixtures 2-1 last season as there was little to separate the pair.

The match is scheduled to kick-off at 4pm and will be screened live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League channels.
