CRYSTAL PALACE WANT CHELSEA’S IVANOVIC

English Premier League side Crystal Palace want Chelsea’s veteran defender Branislav Ivanovic as the player remains out of favour at Stamford Bridge.

With the current set-up, Chelsea have enjoyed four wins in four games. They have kept a clean sheet and scored eleven goals, even against top teams. Ivanovic last played for the blues in the 3-0 loss to Arsenal on September 24. With just three players at the back, Victor Moses has taken his spot.
