Sarri tells Moses he is free to leave Chelsea

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has led his team to 10 successive Premier League matches without defeat, putting them in contention for the Premier League title after succeeding Antonio Conte this season. 3-1 to Chelsea.

Chelsea manager Sarri has confirmed Hazard will feature in the game against Palace on Sunday but will only manage 40 or 45 minutes, meaning the Belgian is likely to be a second-half substitute.

The Blues now refocus their attention on the Premier League, and with last weekend's demolition job at Burnley still fresh in the memory, they'll be confident of adding three more points to their tally against a struggling Crystal Palace side.

After a fast start to his Chelsea career after a then club record £60 million move from Real Madrid a year ago, Morata had scored just twice in 20 Premier League games before netting in last month's 3-0 win at Southampton.

There are doubts as to whether Eden Hazard can start against Crystal Palace.

James McArthur fed Townsend, who surged by the Brazil defender and held him off before finishing superbly for his first goal in 20 league games. And with Liverpool facing the Gunners on Saturday evening, this could present a chance for Chelsea to overtake the Reds if things go their way.

Now for Crystal Palace! . However, since 2015/16, Zaha has been booked four times for diving in the Premier League, more than any other player.

MF Ross Barkley, 6 - His least decisive performance of recent weeks, and was solid without ever threatening to be decisive before Mateo Kovacic replaced him in the 64th minute. A win or draw today will mean that Chelsea will be eleven games undefeated in the league.

Hazard was only fit enough for a place on the bench on his return from a back injury and his creative spark was badly missed as Chelsea laboured until his introduction just after the hour mark.

FW Alvaro Morata, 8 - Seems to have rediscovered his instinctive touch in the penalty area and took his tally to five goals in his last six Chelsea appearances in all competitions.

Chelsea scored with their first shot on target.

Granted, those were against Liverpool and Manchester United, but had they thrown away more points after going in front, as they looked in danger of doing when Townsend levelled the scores, questions might have been asked about their mental fortitude.
