Resurgent Alvaro Morata boosts Chelsea's Premier League title hopes

Sarri is now unbeaten in his first 16 competitive games as Chelsea boss, but will know there is still plenty of room for improvement as a sleepy start to the second-half was punished in the 53rd minute. The Blues may have lost two of the last three league meetings between the sides, but they are a different proposition under Sarri and it would take a courageous punter to oppose them here. Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

Sarri is keen to reduce the size of his squad but he threw out suggestions that he doesn't rotate his side enough and he says that his track record of picking the same 11 at Napoli might not be repeated at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues warmed up for the game with a 3-2 victory over Frank Lampard's Derby County in midweek to book their place in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup but it's league matters that are the focus tomorrow.

"He is a little bit fragile from the mental point of view, but he is very young I think he can improve very fast", said Sarri.

"I have to look also to the minutes in the national teams".

Morata gave Chelsea the lead by finishing well after good work from Pedro, but Palace levelled when a one-two with James McArthur caught David Luiz out of position and Andros Townsend beat Kepa Arrizabalaga with a fine drive.

"I have to think to improve my players". Every moment was done only between the Europa League, League Cup and Premier League but in the future it will be different.

'The important thing for us we want to fight until the end for Premier League. We didn't use 26 players in Naples but I have to choose about this situation of the club. Meanwhile, Crystal Palace were beaten by Championship side Middlesbrough in the same competition, their fifth consecutive game without a win.

However, while Sarri has stopped short of saying anything about the next line of action for Moses, the gaffer spoke at length about one of the winger's rivals, Ruben Loftus-Cheek. So I think rotation is good. It is not easy to play for Manchester City, Manchester United, Juventus.

The coach who has overseen ten successive unbeaten games thus far has the chance of equalling a Premier League record unbeaten run at the start of his tenure.

The current formation seems to be the issue for these two players, but Sarri is unsure whether they can break into the first team.
