Chelsea look to carry over their impressive Champions League win against Porto midweek when they travel to Crystal Palace this evening.

The Blues took a big step towards locking up a place in the semi-finals of Europe’s biggest competition thanks to goals from Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell in Seville, but their shock loss to West Brom last weekend means they are now on the outside looking in as they resume the battle for a top four finish.

West Ham’s win over Wolves means David Moyes’ side hold that coveted position and Thomas Tuchel will be desperate to take care of business in the Premier League to ease pressure on their pursuit of a second European crown in nine years.

Tuchel has spoken about Mount’s tremendous form and why the 22-year-old can cope with extra praise and expectations: “I have the feeling he is very down to earth and he can handle it a lot. It does not change him at all if he is doing good games or bad games or mediocre games, or if he’s praised or not praised. He is very focused and not a moody guy. He is very mature, but at the same time has a sparkle in his eyes which is a very good mix.”
