Chelsea enter the international break in rich form as the Blues moved up to third place in the Premier League table.

While Chelsea defeated Crystal Palace 2-0, Manchester City were beaten by Liverpool 3-1 at Anfield. After match day 12, the Blues are now third in the league and level on points with Leicester City who have moved up to second.

After the international break, Chelsea will visit Etihad Stadium to play Manchester City, and Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma believes Chelsea have the quality to get a good result against Pep Guardiola’s side.

“It’s going to be a big game,” Zouma said, “we’re playing well and it won’t be easy against one of the best teams in the league.

“We also have the quality to go there and do something, we believe in our quality.”

Meanwhile, former Chelsea star Joe Cole has tipped Chelsea to be among the contenders for the Premier League title this season.

“There in and amongst it now,” Cole said of Chelsea’s title chances.

“It’s an amazing performance. At half time we were a bit worried because Palace defended so well in the first half.

“But Chelsea stuck to their guns, moved Palace about and eventually the opening came.

“Willian he stood up today, he’s been brilliant all season and has got the captain’s armband today. The youngsters were brilliant.

“It’s an exciting for Chelsea, onwards and upwards. Second in the table and who would have thought that at the start of the season.

“Frank won’t thank us for it he’d like to be even more quiet about it.”
