These 3 Chelsea key Players Could Miss The Clash Against Crystal Palace.
This weekend, we will see the Blues in action again in the EPL as they have just managed to stay out of the competition as a result of the club world cup which they won and it will not be recalled as anything other than a master class.
While this return is imminent, some players will not be available for this clash.
Thomas Tuchel led his charges to yet another cup final win, stunning South America champions, Palmeiras, to win 2-1 after extra-time.

However, there will be little time for Tuchel and his men to rest with a trip to Selhurst Park to face Palace on the cards.
The Blues will be hoping to use the clash to revive their slim hopes of catching up with league leaders, Man City.
Mason Mount, Loftus-Cheek, and Reece James sidelined
The trio of Mason Mount, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and Reece James is unlikely to play any role in the clash with the three Chelsea stars currently nursing injuries.

Mount was a doubt for the Club World Cup after he picked a slight knock against Plymouth Argyle in the FA Cup, but managed to return on the final – only to be replaced before the break with an ankle problem.
Loftus-Cheek equally suffered an injury blow against Plymouth Argyle and had been ruled out for a few weeks.
However, he has since returned to training in a major boost for Tuchel but remains to be seen if he will feature against Palace.
James, meanwhile, is pushing to regain full fitness after being sidelined for weeks with an injury which also kept him out of action during the Club World Cup.
