London - The stage is set for a Premier League coronation this weekend as champions-elect Chelsea host Crystal Palace on Sunday needing three points to claim a first league title since 2010.
Chelsea's 3-1 win at Leicester City on Wednesday left them 13 points clear of nearest rivals Manchester City and Arsenal, who have a game in hand, and brought the league trophy to within touching distance.
The title seems destined for Stamford Bridge regardless of what happens this weekend, but Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech is eager to cross the line in front of the club's fans.
"It's amazing when you win a title, but if you win it at home it puts the icing on the cake," said the 32-year-old Czech, who deputised for Thibaut Courtois at Leicester.
With Palace 12 points clear of the bottom three and safe from relegation, they would appear to represent perfect dupes for Chelsea's title party.
But while Alan Pardew's side have lost their last two home games, going down 2-0 to West Bromwich Albion and Hull City, they have been beaten only once in eight matches on the road.
"Stamford Bridge is ready to celebrate, but if I can ask something from them it is to not celebrate," warned Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.
"We all want to win on Sunday, but it will be a difficult game. Stamford Bridge must be ready to push us. I hope they want to play the game with us. We need them to help us win the title on Sunday."
