As always, the digital version of the matchday programme is available to buy hours before kick-off, meaning the pre-match hype for the Saturday 3pm kick-off can start now.
The main interview for the Villans clash comes from a man who knows them well, with Gary Cahill looking back on his time with the club - including an excellent Gabriel Agbonlahor story.
The summer signing for the Eagles also goes into great detail discussing Roy Hodgson as manager of England and Palace. Furthermore, the former captain of Chelsea and England talks about Luka Milivojevic's role in the dressing room and the Serbian's role as the man with armband.
Roy Hodgson talks Manchester United and Steve Parish reflects on Colchester United, whilst we have our first column of the season from U18s manager, Paddy McCarthy (it sounds like us Eagles should be excited about our up and coming striker, Rob Street!).
Having joined the club in the summer, Leeta Rutherford discusses the pre-season for Palace Women and the opening two games for the Eagles' Championship season, with Dean Davenport's side narrowly missing out in injury time on a point away at Durham last weekend, in what would've been an impressive point for the Palace.
