With Joao Felix suspended, Koulibaly and Hall dropped; Here is Chelsea starting XI to face Crystal Palace

Chelsea will have to fall back on the man they had neglected as Joao Felix takes up a red card in his debut and this could be the first win of 2023 for Graham Potter.

So how could Chelsea line-up against Crystal Palace?
Possible XI: Kepa, Chalobah, Silva, Cucurella, Azpilicueta, Jorginho, Kovacic, Hall, Mount, Havertz, Aubameyang

With Eduardo Mendy still out, Kepa will start again Despite Kalidou Koulibaly scoring in midweek, he could be dropped with Lewis Hall coming into the team at left wing-back and Marc Cucurella slotting into a left centre-back role.

Denis Zakaria’s fitness is unclear after he came off in midweek with an injury so a midfield pivot of Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho could be called upon by Potter at Stamford Bridge.

Felix is suspended so won’t be part of the attack, giving Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang a chance to come back into the side after being an unused substitute against Fulham, joining Mason Mount and Kai Havertz in attack.
