Chelsea veteran defender Branislav Ivanovic has lost his place in the Chelsea starting lineup, and with his contract expiring during the summer, he might have to find a new club for himself.

With Conte preferring to play a back 3, Ivanovic has lost his shirt and might never start a league game for Chelsea this season.

Chelsea have won four games with four clean sheets, scoring 11 goals, since Ivanovic last started in the Premier League. With the 32-year-old out of contract in the summer, Crystal Palace are keen on landing the defender.

He has attracted interest from Europe and China, but Crystal Palace seems to be very keen on landing the Serbian.

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
