Crystal Palace are winless in the Premier League after seven games and the South London club are also yet to score a goal in the league.
Chelsea will visit Crystal Palace on October 14th after the international break and Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson is expecting his players to work really hard against the Blues.
“Christian Benteke won’t be back for a few weeks, so we still won’t have a recognised centre-forward,” Hodgson said as quoted on Daily Express.
“Wilf Zaha probably won’t be back and Ruben Loftus-Cheek can’t play [as he is on loan from Chelsea].
“So there are three quality players I can name off the top of my head who could have helped us do a better job against Chelsea.
“But they’re not there, so it’s got to be the lads I put out there who go out and run their b****cks off – if you excuse my expression – to try to do the best job they can possibly do.”
