An important update while waiting for Crystal Palace v Chelsea clash on 14 October: the Eagles will probably be able to select one of their stars, Wilfred Zaha, for the clash against the Blues.
Zaha has not featured since the opening day of the season, a 3-0 home defeat by Huddersfield that he departed wearing a brace on his right knee.
Palace had one of the worst start in Premier League history, with 0 points and 0 goals scored in 7 games: manager Frank de Boer was sacked after only four games to be replaced by former England coach Roy Hodgson, but he couldn’t rise the Eagles form in the last three matches.
This is the main reason why Palace will be ready to give everything against Chelsea in the next fixture derby.
Zaha’s recovery from his knee injury, proved by a video the forward himself uploaded on his social media accounts, can be an additional boost for the clash against the Blues, with the striker set to be fully fit after joining the rest of the squad in training in these days of international break.
