Chelsea head into another London derby this weekend when they face Crystal Palace as they eye their first win of the year to end their losing streak.

Four games have been played and Chelsea have yet to pick up a win. A draw against Nottingham Forest has been followed up by three successive defeats in all competitions against Manchester City (twice) and Fulham.

Pressure piled on Chelsea further on Thursday as they fell to a 2-1 defeat to Fulham, while new loan arrival Joao Felix was sent off on his debut to add to Graham Potter’s problems.

Chelsea have slipped to 10th place in the Premier League and are in dire need of a win to relieve some of the pressure on Potter and the squad as tensions rise from supporters.

Crystal Palace have lost three of their last five Premier League games but could go level on points with the Blues with a win at Stamford Bridge on Sunday as they look to inflict more misery on the two-time Champions League winners.

Here is all the information for the league encounter:

Date, kick-off-time and location
