Team News: Diego Costa, Andre Schurrle not included in Chelsea squad

Diego Costa is left out of Chelsea's matchday squad for their trip to Crystal Palace.

The Premier League's top goalscorer Diego Costa has not been included in Chelsea's matchday squad for their trip to Crystal Palace this afternoon.

The Spaniard has been struggling with a hamstring injury for the majority of the season and after featuring for Spain in the international break, Jose Mourinho has opted for Loic Remy as his lone striker.

Andre Schurrle also misses out at Selhurst Park and the World Cup winner has been replaced by Willian.

The home side have made just one change for the clash, with Brede Hangeland replacing Scott Dann at centre-back.

Crystal Palace: Speroni, Kelly, Hangeland, Delaney, Ward, Bolasie, Jedinak, McArthur, Ledley, Puncheon, Campbell
Subs: Hennessey, Mariappa, Guedioura, Doyle, Zaha, Gayle, Chamakh

Chelsea: Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Remy
Subs: Cech, Zouma, Filipe Luis, Mikel, Salah, Drogba, Solanke
