The Premier League is back this weekend and it seems as though Marco Silva has a few selection calls to make for the game against Crystal Palace.

The Blues went into the international break on the back of two solid wins against Leicester City and Fulham before that and it seems clear that we are showing some good signs.

We can’t rest on those laurels, though, and so a win against the Eagles will only be good enough with them struggling for form and consistency.

Fortunately, things look set to get competitive in the squad this weekend with the likes of Andre Gomes and Yerry Mina ramping up their recovery.

Indeed, earlier this week I asked fans of our club whether or not Mina should be playing at centre-half this weekend and it looks as though we’re pretty torn over that prospect:

Personally, I’d start him on the bench for this one but I could also see him making his full debut this weekend.
