Chelsea host Crystal Palace in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

Mauricio Pochettino‘s side were beaten on Christmas Eve to ensure it was just one win in their last four in the league.

Chelsea were punished, again, for their ack of ruthlessness in both boxes at Molineux, which left the visitors empty handed on the night before Christmas despite Christopher Nkunku‘s consolation debut goal in stoppage time.

Pochettino admitted Chelsea are ‘so far away’ from the objectives set at the beginning of the season.

He told reporters: “So far away. To be honest our target was to be on top. We are Chelsea, with our history and everything, it demands us to be near the top.

“But at the moment we need to be realistic, we need to compete better if we want to win more games.”

Chelsea will again be without Enzo Fernandez for the league clash. Pochettino is hopeful over Moises Caicedo (illness), while Lesley Ugochukwu is set to miss out with a hamstring problem.

Here are all of the details ahead of Chelsea versus Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
