Chelsea 2-1 Crystal Palace: Premier League TV channel, live streaming online

The Blues have come in for heavy criticism after back-to-back defeats against both Manchester clubs and another loss could spin them into crisis

Chelsea have struggled in London derby matches under Antonio Conte, particularly against Crystal Palace, but they are desperate for a result when they host Roy Hodgson's men on Saturday with a place in the top four on the line. 

Tottenham are currently five points ahead of Chelsea, who are fifth and could miss out on a lucrative spot in Europe if they can't overturn the points difference in the final nine games of the season. 

Palace are in poor form themselves as they battle relegation, while an injury crisis has seen them without a win in their last six games, but a positive result could see them out of the bottom three on Saturday.

Chelsea must get back to winning ways against Crystal Palace to keep their hopes of Champions League qualification alive.

Four defeats in their previous five Premier League games has seen them fall five points behind fourth-placed Tottenham. The Blues lost the reverse fixture in October.

Palace, meanwhile, fell to a last-gasp 3-2 defeat to Manchester United last time out, having held a 2-0 lead on the hour mark, to leave them in the relegation zone.

Valiant displays in narrow losses to United and, a week earlier, Tottenham will have buoyed Roy Hodgson's troops but points must start being picked up.
