Premier League Reload - Matchday 8Oct 10
Despite forking out over £200m in the summer transfer window, Frank Lampard's big-spending Blues sit below Palace in the table ahead of Satuday's lunchtime meeting.
Chelsea are winless in the league since their opening-day victory over Brighton, succumbing to Liverpool at Anfield before fighting back from 3-0 down to salvage a draw at newly-promoted West Brom last Saturday.
Now Lampard's men welcome Palace to Stamford Bridge needing a win to get their season back on track.
By contrast the Eagles have been soaring since the new campaign began.
Back-to-back victories over Southampton and Manchester United took them to within touching distance of the top of the table before a controversial handball penalty decision saw them go down to fellow high-fliers Everton last weekend.
Palace could become only the second team to win at Stamford Bridge and Old Trafford in consecutive away Premier League games, but the hosts will take solace have won each of their last five top-flight meetings with Crystal Palace.
Will Chelsea's new-look side finally click? Or will Palace pile the pressure on Lampard with to earn bragging rights in London?
