Following a disappointing Premier League game against West Brom last weekend, the Blues are hoping to bounce back. But here is the question for the upcoming game against the Eagles; Tammy Abraham or Olivier Giroud up front? Select your preferred Chelsea XI from our two options from the game against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has reported no new injury concerns for the Blues ahead of their trip to Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon. With N’Golo Kante returning to play the last few minutes against FC Porto on Wednesday and Thiago Silva banned for the game after his red card last weekend.
So, who should Thomas Tuchel pick against Crystal Palace on Saturday up front? Tammy Abraham or Olivier Giroud? Here are a couple of options you can choose from.
Option 1: Picking Tammy Abraham Up Front
- The young striker has been told to keep his head down and work his way back in the team and so the game against Palace could be a great chance for Tammy.
- Kante, on the other hand, should slot back into midfield while Hakim Ziyech also deserves another chance from the off.
Option 2: A Chance for Pulisic and Olivier Giroud
- The Frenchman and the American forwards made a good impact off the bench in the Champions League game against Porto and could be given a starting role at the weekend.
- While another French star Kurt Zouma could be given another chance to prove himself after a difficult game last week against the Baggies.
