We’re all pining for Premier League games right now, and Graham Potter will be on the Chelsea bench for his first-ever game on Saturday. Thomas Tuchel was fired on September 7, but due to unusual circumstances, it has taken thus long for Potter to lead his first domestic match for a major club.
His team will play Crystal Palace on Saturday in a London derby. His team enters the weekend in seventh place with 10 points. The Eagles have only 6 points so far this year.

This season, Mason Mount and Kai Havertz are just failing to deliver. We anticipate that one of them will be benched and the other will remain in the starting lineup. Is Auba the solution? Unfortunately, we don’t believe Capt. America Christian Pulisic will have a chance here.
Let’s look at how Potter could line ’em up.
Kepa; Fofana, Silva, Koulibaly; James; Jorginho, Kovacic, Chilwell; Mount, Sterling, Emerick-Aubameyang
Prediction: Chelsea 2, Crystal Palace 1
