Chelsea will be determined to continue their unbeaten start to the Premier League season by securing all three points against Crystal Palace this afternoon. 

The Blues, who have six of their opening seven fixtures this term, will start the game without star striker Diego Costa who has been ruled out of the clash with an injury. Summer signing Loic Remy will take Costa's place in the side as Jose Mourinho's side go in search of goals at Selhurst Park.
