CHELSEA makes the short trip to Crystal Palace in hopes of achieving consecutive Premier League victories.

Frank Lampard's men returned the blow of their shocking loss to West Ham with a 3-0 win over Watford, just out of second gear in the process.

They will face off against a Palace team that has lost its last three first-class games in the twist, extinguishing any hope of a European boost late in the season.

Roy Hodgson's men failed to score on that losing streak, but they do have a decent record against the visitors, beating them 2-1 here in 2017.
