Chelsea manager José Mourinho heads in to this game with Crystal Palace knwoing that a win at Stamford Bridge will mathematically give them the EPL title for the year 2014/15.  Expectedly, Stamford Bridge will be packed in anticipation of The Blues sealing the title in front of them. If and when Mourinho’s team wins it will be Chelsea’s first title in 5 years. Chelsea’s morale will be boosted with Crystal Palace’s recent record which saw a slip in standards for Alan pardew’s men. With Premier League guaranteed  for next season Palace have nothing to play for in this match. “Them (Chelsea) winning the league would be deserved because they’ve done extraordinarily well this season, but we don’t want them to do it against us.”” said Yannick Bolasie, Palace Winger. Mr. Bolasie I hope remembers that Palace has not won a league game at Chelsea in 33 years.

Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry (c), Azpilicueta; Ramires, Matic; Willian, Fabregas, Hazard; Drogba.
