Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has named his team to face Crystal Palace, and the Chelsea boss made a few changes from the team that beat Porto in midweek.

Callum Hudson-Odoi and Kurt Zouma make a return to the team and there is also a start for Christian Pulisic.

The weird thing about the lineup is the absence of a natural striker, as the Blues boss dropped Timo Werner, Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud to the bench.

See the lineup below

Chelsea starting Xi: Mendy; Azpilicueta (c), Zouma, Rudiger; Hudson-Odoi, Jorginho, Kovacic, Chilwell; Pulisic, Havertz, Mount.

Subs: Kepa, Alonso, Emerson, James, Kante, Ziyech, Abraham, Giroud, Werner.

Crystal Palace starting XI: Guaita; Ward, Kouyate, Cahill, Van Aanholt; Ayew, Milivojevic (c), Riedewald, Eze; Benteke, Zaha.

Subs: Butland, Dann, Mitchell, Kelly, McCarthy, Rak-Sakyi, Townsend, Schlupp, Mateta.
