World News – GB – Full Chelsea squad for Crystal Palace shock as Christian Pulisic returns


All Chelsea players available for Frank Lampard ahead of Premier League clash against Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea can bounce back from their Carabao Cup exit to Crystal Palace this afternoon

After beating Brighton and Hove Albion, they were beaten 2-0 at home by Liverpool and needed a second half comeback to earn a point against West Brom last weekend

On either side of the last Premier League game, the Blues defeated Barnsley 6-0 in the Carabao Cup third round, to withdraw from the penalty shootout competition against Tottenham Hotspur earlier in the week

But they now have the option to avoid going three games without a win in all competitions when they host a Palace side who have already beaten Manchester United on their travels this season

The Blues will enter the game at Stamford Bridge knowing Christian Pulisic is back with the squad after injury, but head coach Frank Lampard has confirmed Hakim Ziyech is still unavailable

“Pulisic is in the squad tomorrow,” Lampard revealed in his pre-match press conference. “He won’t start the match because of the injury he got and it was an injury difficult

« I’m very keen to bring him back in there so it’s great to see him again, he’s an important player for us

In addition to Ziyech, for this afternoon’s clash against the Eagles, the Blues will be without two other first-team players as prodigy Billy Gilmour and forgotten midfielder Marco van Ginkel will miss an injury

Meanwhile, £ 22million summer signing Edouard Mendy is set to make his Premier League debut after coming out against Spurs during the week

Thiago Silva and Kai Havertz could return to the starting XI after resting on Tuesday, and with that in mind, Lampard has plenty of options to choose from
