Chelsea host Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge in the first Premier League action of the weekend.   

Frank Lampard’s team will hope to return to winning ways after a poor performance at West Brom and a midweek Carabao Cup exit to Tottenham. 

Crystal Palace have started the league season in encouraging fashion with two wins from three though they lost at home to Everton last time out.

Host commentator

Edouard Mendy made his debut for Chelsea in their Carabao Cup tie against Tottenham in midweek and gets the pick between the posts over Kepa Arrizabalaga again today. 

This looks like the direction Frank Lampard is going in with regards Chelsea’s keeper.

Roy Hodgson has told clubs thinking about bidding for Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha not to bother, with only days left before the international transfer window closes.

The 27-year-old has been linked with a move away from Selhurst Park during the last two seasons, but has started the new Premier League campaign strongly with goals in wins over Southampton and Manchester United.

Zaha will line up again for the Eagles on Saturday at Chelsea and any talk it may be his last game for the club is wide of the mark.

Bayern Munich have stepped up their latest attempts to prise Callum Hudson-Odoi away from Chelsea.

Bayern have approached Chelsea to see if they can conclude a deal to sign the England winger before Monday’s deadline.

Hudson-Odoi, 19, signed a new five-year contract last September after Chelsea rebuffed Bayern’s attempts to sign him in the previous two windows.

Welcome along to yet another weekend of wall-to-wall Premier League football! 

Four matches today and a remarkable SIX tomorrow to comprise matchweek four before we pause for a couple of weeks of international football. 

We begin this lunchtime with Chelsea against Crystal Palace from Stamford Bridge and two sides looking to get back to winning ways.

Frank Lampard’s Chelsea haven’t enjoyed the best week. They needed to fight back from three goals down to earn a point against West Brom and then went out of the Carabao Cup on penalties to Tottenham in midweek. 

Palace started with back to back wins over Southampton and Manchester United but then lost at home to Everton last time out.

It’ll certainly be tough for them at Stamford Bridge against a Chelsea team determined to prove a point but Palace have been playing with confidence.

It’s a 12.30pm kick off and we’ll have plenty of build-up between now and then followed by full live coverage of the match.
