Sarri reveals what Chelsea must do to surely win the league

Alvaro Morata scored twice as Chelsea withstood a scare from Crystal Palace - delivered by Andros Townsend's second-half equaliser - to maintain Maurizio Sarri's unbeaten start to Premier League football, moving them back to within two points of Manchester City.

Just like Moses, Loftus-Cheek is yet to start a Premier League match this season, although he recently hit a hat-trick against BATE Borisov in the Europa League.

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has hinted he will not be signing any player in the January transfer window. Find out by following our live matchcast.

Despite Palace recently having the upper hand over Chelsea, the Blues have historically been in control of this fixture.

8 - Sarri's starting XI encountered problems in the first half but his management of Morata is clearly paying off, and his substitutes - it's always nice to be able to bring on the Premier League's best player this season, isn't it? - turned a hard game in exactly the way he wanted.

Palace should welcome Wilfried Zaha back in to the side after he recovered from a minor shoulder problem that kept him out of the League Cup defeat to Middlesbrough.

Predicted Crystal Palace XI: Hennessey; Wan-Bissaka, Tomkins, Sakho, van Aanholt; Milivojevic; McArthur, Kouyate; Townsend, Ayew, Zaha. Chelsea go 3-1 up!

Chelsea forward, Eden Hazard is waiting for a signal from Real Madrid before he decides on his future at Stamford Bridge, according to reports.

Ross Barkley to become regular starter?

"I think Hazard is much more pragmatic than that and will make a decision based on his own will and desire rather than who the coach is".

18+ only. Ts&Cs apply. If you look at the top of the table, City only conceded three and Liverpool four.

But it should be Chelsea's game if the Sarri system continues to roll on, with another performance from the Blues similar to the one they showed against Burnley last time out.

Chelsea scored with their first shot on target.

69- Goal! Game over!

As Sarrismo has Chelsea applying constant pressure on opposition defences, the Blues have nearly always managed to get at exhausted opponents as the game goes on - as shown with Barkley's 96th-minute equaliser against Manchester United.

"To get the most out of Eden Hazard you probably don't want Antonio Conte to be his manager because there has been great difficulty in that relationship".
