Crystal Palace v Chelsea
Crystal Palace will look to avoid a third straight defeat to Chelsea when the two clubs meet at Selhurst Park on Sunday afternoon.
The Eagles lost 3-1 at Stamford Bridge this season and 2-1 last term, but they did win the last meeting on home soil (2-1) when an own goal from Cesar Azpilicueta and a Wilfried Zaha strike gave them all three points.
Palace are unbeaten in their last three matches - two wins and a draw - and have moved seven points clear of the relegation zone with Roy Hodgson's men keeping two clean sheets in that run.
Hodgson is boosted by the return of goalkeeper Wayne Hennessy after injury, after the Wales international missed the last three games because of a back problem.
Defender Martin Kelly also comes back into contention, after two weeks out with a groin strain, but striker Christian Benteke is still missing with a knee injury.
Chelsea make the nine-mile journey across London looking to build on their Boxing Day win at Watford, but Selhurst Park has not been a happy hunting ground for Eden Hazard. The Belgian star has never scored at Palace's home ground and has bagged just one goal in 11 games against the Eagles.
Maurizio Sarri has revealed that he will be without Pedro for Sunday's 12-noon showdown, with the Spaniard suffering a hamstring problem at Vicarage Road. Callum Hudson-Odoi is also expected to miss out, having picked up a similar injury against Watford.
