Crystal Palace manager Tony Pulis will once again be relying on Glenn Murray or Cameron Jerome to lead the line for the Eagles when they welcome Barclays Premier League leaders Chelsea to Selhurst Park.

With Maraoune Chamakh (hamstring) and Dwight Gayle (ankle) both still missing, Pulis has only two fit strikers as his side look to improve on a run of just one goal in their last five fixtures.

Midfielder Barry Bannan will be pushing for a start having returned to the bench in last weekend's defeat at Newcastle following a spell on the sidelines through illness.

Striker Samuel Eto'o is out of Chelsea's trip to Crystal Palace with a hamstring injury.

Willian is available after serving a one-match suspension, but Ramires is banned for two more games following his dismissal in the controversial loss at Aston Villa.

Left-back Ashley Cole (knee) is still out and midfielder Marco van Ginkel (knee) is continuing his rehabilitation by playing for the under-21s.
