Chelsea will be aiming to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they face Crystal Palace on the road tonight.
The Blues have lost their last two games in the top-flight and will be aiming to end the streak to return to the top half of the table.
Djordje Petrovic has been brilliant in goal for the Blues since his debut. The Serbian is expected to continue between the sticks in the London derby at Selhurst Park.
In front of him, Pochettino could go with a four-man backline. Malo Gusto and Ben Chilwell look the likely candidates to start in the right and left-back positions respectively.
Thiago Silva should be reinstated into the starting line-up and he is likely to partner Axel Disasi in central defence. Disasi has been a mainstay in the backline for the London giants.
In midfield, it should be a familiar set-up with Moises Caicedo and Enzo Fernandez being paired up together. Cole Palmer is likely to get the nod in the number 10 role ahead of Conor Gallagher.
Further forward, we could see Noni Madueke on the right wing with Nicolas Jackson on the opposite flank. The Senegalese has looked much better cutting inside from the left wing.
Christopher Nkunku should lead the attack for the second straight league game. The Frenchman has yet to find consistency since his injury comeback, but he is the best option up front.
Predicted Chelsea line-up (4-2-3-1): Petrovic; Gusto, Disasi, Silva, Chilwell; Caicedo, Fernandez; Madueke, Palmer, Jackson; Nkunku.
