After Manchester United were heavily defeated by Manchester City in the Premier League earlier on today, Chelsea stay fifth in the Premier League table. The Blue's landed an important win against Crystal Palace courtesy of a Conor Gallagher screamer.

Chelsea stay fifth in the league, and have a reasonable number of games coming up against teams that they are expected to beat.

Wolves are up next, and having just sacked manager Bruno Lage, could be the perfect game for Graham Potter to land his second Premier League win as Chelsea boss.

Chelsea play Wolves next, who have just sacked manager Bruno Lage.

Arsenal stay top, but the Gunners do host Liverpool at the Emirates next week in a game that could see them slip up.
