PALACE (4-2-3-1)

Chelsea can claim the Barclays Premier League for the fourth time in 11 years - and confirm a fifth top-flight title - after winning 3-1 at Leicester on Wednesday night.

They face Crystal Palace on the back of a 14-game unbeaten run in which the Blues have taken 34 points from a possible 42 to move to 80 points with four games remaining and a 13-point advantage over second-placed Manchester City and Arsenal, in third.

Only Arsenal, at Hull on Monday, can catch Chelsea because they have a game in hand but that could be academic if JosÈ Mourinho's men secure their 25th win of the season against the Eagles on Sunday.

For Mourinho it is another remarkable success; he has already won seven league titles in four different countries and can make it number eight in the space of just 13 years.

They face a Palace side that, after winning four in a row, have suffered successive defeats without a goal, but they have won more away games and points than at Selhurst Park with 24 points secured on the road compared to 18 at home.
