Crystal Palace's Yannick Bolasie out to spoil Chelsea's title party

Bolasie hopes Palace can get something from their clash with Chelsea to prevent the Blues from winning the Premier League title against them.

Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie has stressed that they don't want to be the side Chelsea wrap the title up against.

The Eagles travel to Stamford Bridge on Sunday hoping to delay Jose Mourinho's side from being crowned champions of England, as the Blues need just one win to secure their first Premier League title in five years.

Bolasie is quoted in the Croydon Advertiser as saying: "Of course you don't want to see Chelsea celebrate. Credit to Chelsea, they are a good team and have done extraordinary this season, so them winning the league would be deserved.

"You don't want them to win against us, though. It will probably be a crazy scene there if they win it but at the same time it's some sort of inspiration for us at Palace.

"I have a lot of friends who support Chelsea – but I'll be looking for an upset."

Very few sides have left Stamford Bridge this season with something to show for their efforts.Burnley, Manchester City and Southampton have all left with a point apiece, but no-one has managed to defeat the Blues on their own patch.

Alan Pardew's side have had a strong second half of the season, which has seen them secure their status in the division once again, and Bolasie has been an integral part of that as his pace and power can cause defenders all sorts of problems. He will be hoping to have a similar impact against Chelsea this weekend.

A top-half finish is still in Palace's sights so they certainly have something to play for this weekend and won't be a pushover for Chelsea, but they face a tough task if they intend on leaving Stamford Bridge with a positive result.
