Chelsea vs Crystal Palace: Team news, Predicted lineup, and Head to Head

Chelsea faces Crystal Palace at Wembley in an all-London FA Cup semi-finals.

Chelsea was eliminated in the quarter-finals of the Champions League by Real Madrid at Santiago Bernabeu this week on 5-3 aggregate.

The blues put up an impressive performance against the 13th-time Champions League winner but were unlucky as Rodrygo’s 86th-minute goal pushed the game to extra time after Mount, Rudiger, and Werner had given the London Club a 3 goals lead.

Chelsea will seek to qualify for their second consecutive FA Cup final after last season’s defeat to Leicester City at Wembley.

Crystal palace saw their seven-match unbeaten run spoiled by Leicester City last weekend in the Premier League.

Patrick Viera’s side is aiming to seal a third FA Cup final appearance and first since 2016 when they lost in extra-time to Manchester United.
