Ruben Loftus-Cheek nearing Crystal Palace return after ankle injury

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said he retained faith in strikers Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud despite choosing to deploy Eden Hazard up front in last week's defeat against Manchester City in the Premier League.

However, Conte has revealed that the Chelsea star has been training with the rest of his teammates all week after tests carried out by club doctors came back clear. "He's in good form, yeah he's fine". "He's in good form", Conte confirmed in a press conference held ahead of the derby with Palace on Saturday. "On Friday it was very cold and after the training session he passed out briefly in the dressing room".

N'Golo Kante has handed Chelsea a major boost ahead of upcoming games against Crystal Palace and Barcelona after Antonio Conte confirmed that the France global is back in contention following a health scare suffered during preparations for last weekend's trip to Manchester City.

"The doctor brought him to have many check-ups, to understand his physical condition".

"I would be delighted if it was possible for him to play any part on Saturday".

'I trust them both and for sure I'm working with them both to bring them in the best physical form and best condition.

"(Against Palace) for sure we have this option to play with Giroud or Morata as number nine. As far as betting is considered, we are getting a great price on this wager.

Crystal Palace: After going 2-0 up against Manchester United on Monday, Roy Hodgson's side then conceded three in a row to drop a golden opportunity to get out of the relegation zone. "The player and I must have patience". This is a game which the manager, the players and the fans will expect to win but in recent history, Crystal Palace has been a hard opponent for the Blues. We want to try to get three points. The odds are very long and due to this reason, we should look at a smaller sized bet.
