Chelsea travel to South London this weekend to take on Tony Pulis' Crystal Palace side and will be looking for another important three points. With PSG in mind away on Tuesday, who do you think should start this one for the blues?

I am a firm believer in playing our strongest team now week in, week out as we have reached the business end of the season. We simply cannot afford to drop any points in the month of April with some massive Premier League games coming up that will define our season and the title race. We cannot afford to worry about what's happening to City or Liverpool, we have to ensure we win our games and then see where it takes us.

So, tomorrow and the Chelsea team Jose sends out for this one. We know Ashley Cole is out and so too is Samuel Eto'o. Ramires is suspended. Marko Van Ginkel continues to work hard to get fit and I believe this again will be too soon for him. Everyone else should be fit.

In my opinion, the back four remains the same as it has been for weeks now. In front of Petr Cech, Branislav Ivanovic, Gary Cahill, John Terry and Cesar Azpilicueta all start.

In midfield, in the absence of Ramires I would like us to continue with the combination of David Luiz and Nemanja Matic.

The attacking three is difficult and tough on either Andre Schurrle or Willian as one of them needs to miss out tomorrow. Willian returns from his one match ban after receiving two yellow cards at Villa and I wonder if Jose Mourinho will decide to stick him straight back in the side or reward the team that played so well last week and keep Schurrle there?

Up front Fernando Torres will start with Eto'o out injured.

So my team would be exactly the same that walked off the pitch at half time against Arsenal last week:

Cech, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry(c), Azpilicueta, Luiz, Matic, Schurrle, Oscar, Hazard and Torres.

What do you think?
