Loic Remy will have to wait a while, quite a while, before being able to make his Eagles debut.
The striker only joined Palace nine-days ago but Alan Pardew confirmed earlier this week that the on-loan Chelsea star had suffered an injury in training: "He's just got a little thigh strain. I don't know how long he's out for, but he's had a scan on Tuesday morning and I'll know more on Thursday." Remy will now return to Cobham for treatment and could miss up-to 8 weeks. Fortunately, the arrival of Christian Benteke will help to ensure Palace still have attacking options, despite Fraizer Campbell also being side-lined. Yohan Cabaye [minor groin strain] looks set to miss the trip to Middlesbrough but James McArthur should be fine and Pardew could call upon new signing Mathieu Flamini if needed to bolster the midfield.

Crystal Palace has unveiled a completely revamped attack in the past week with the signings of Christian Benteke and now Loic Remy.

The Chelsea forward joins Crystal Palace on a season-log loan after falling well down the pecking order under Antonio Conte at Chelsea. Now the French international links back up with manager Alan Pardew, who he played under with Newcastle in 2013-14 en route to scoring 13 goals for the Magpies. Said Pardew: Loic has been a target of mine throughout this transfer window and I’m delighted the deal has been done. I brought him to Newcastle so I know what he is capable of and I am convinced he will be a quality addition to our squad as we evolve."

Loic Remy may have kicked his last ball for Chelsea after the striker was replaced during the first half of yesterdays’ win at Villa Park due to a groin problem.

Remy has endured an injury ravaged couple of years at Chelsea – just 9 Premier League starts since joining from Queens Park Rangers - and following this latest setback his time at Stamford Bridge maybe coming to an end. Speaking after the 4-0 win over Aston Villa, Guus Hiddink confirmed: "I think (Remy) will be out for a long period," although when asked if he would play again this season, the Dutchman added: "I can't say because the doctor has to make analysis tomorrow. Next week we will know more. But, my experience is you will not recover in just a few days." Given the form of Diego Costa in recent months, Pato scoring on his debut and the availability of Radamel Falcao only serving to intensify competition for places - Remy could be left out in the cold.

Loic Remy came on late in the second half and scored to draw Chelsea within one but couldn't rescue a point as the Blues fell 2-1 to Leicester City.

The bad news keeps coming for Jose Mourinho and his squad as they suffered another loss and also watched as Eden Hazard left the match in the first half with an injury. The injury didn't look extremely serious but it certainly didn't help to lose their most creative player when it was always likely that they were going to have to score goals. Loic Remy did well as a substitute but the starters couldn't breach the Foxes' defense and the west London club had to settle for a ninth defeat on the campaign that left them only a single point above the relegation zone.

Loic Remy and Pedro remain out for week 10.

Remy and Pedro missed Chelsea's midweek clash in the Champions League and the injury situation "has not changed" for Jose Mourinho. The Blues will likely start Willian and Eden Hazard once again, and both seem to be good choices against a mediocre West Ham side. Remy and Pedro's injuries are not expected to be serious and both have a chance to return in week 11.

Loic Remy and Pedro have both been ruled out of Chelsea's midweek clash against Dynamo Kiev.

Chelsea face Kiev in the Champions League in midweek and both Remy and Pedro have small injuries that won't allow them to play. This doesn't seem as a Mourinho trick as both players have reportedly remained in London. With Pedro out, one of Oscar or Eden Hazard will likely start in midfield, while Diego Costa will remain in his starting striker position.

Loic Remy and Radamel Falcao are battling for a start during Diego Costa's suspension.

With Costa suspended, both Remy and Falcao are ready to make an impact at Chelsea. Remy said earlier this week that he would love to face his old club this is shaping up like the perfect revenge game. It's risky to use either striker in leagues that lock at the first match kickoff, but in leagues where you can make changes up until kickoff of the Chelsea match, feel free to fire up Remy or Falcao.

New York Red Bulls pulled off a 4-2 win against defending Premier League champions Chelsea, with all four goals coming in the second half.

A rude welcome for the visiting Blues, who got the scoring started when Loic Remy latched on to a pass from Oscar inside the area and had plenty of time to slot home. Something happened at the half though and the Red Bulls, fielding a side made up mainly of academy players, came out firing with three unanswered goals between the 51st and 73rd minute. Chelsea did not sub in fringe players either: Eden Hazard, John Terry, Nemanja Matic and Diego Costa all came on for the second frame. Hazard would score to cut the Red Bull advantage to one, but the hosts would grab a fourth goal late to seal the points.

Palace could be back in the race for Chelsea front-man Loic Remy as Chelsea agree to let him go…

Reports in Turkey have stated that Chelsea agreed a deal to let striker Loic Remy go to Besiktas, but the player is yet to agree to the switch. This will alert Palace who can not only offer Remy the chance to stay in London, but the chance to link-up with former Newcastle boss Alan Pardew and captain Yohan Cabaye. A top class striker has always been the top priority for Palace as they look to kick-on from their consecutive 11th and 10th place PL finishes. Remy would fit the bill and looks to have relegated to third choice again at Chelsea, following their capture of Ramadel Falcao. Regular first-team football will also be vital if Remy is to feature for France in the Euros at the end of the season. Something you suspect Pardew might mention should it reach the negotiation stage…

Palace are reconsidering their move for Loic Remy after Chelsea slap a £15 million price tag on the French striker…

The move looked a distinct possibility when Chelsea agreed the loan deal for Falcao. A move that possibly relegates Remy to third choice at Stamford Bridge, or at best squabbling for second choice behind Diego Costa. Remy started just six PL matches last season, most of his contributions coming as a late substitute for Didier Drogba. And with Euro 2016 looming Remy will relish the opportunity to get maximum minutes in the pitch. His pedigree is proven and manager Pardew knows him well from his time at Newcastle, where he produced arguably the best form of his career – hitting 14 goals in 24 matches. His reported £80k a week wages are not a problem, but a £15 million transfer fee for a 28 year old with limited sell-on value might prove a stumbling block.

The chances of Loic Remy leaving Chelsea are increasing by the minute.

Chelsea are reportedly getting closer and closer to signing Radamel Falcao and if they are able to do that, Loic Remy might be on the way out. The combination of Remy wanting playing time and Chelsea needing to balance the books might send the player to another club. SkyBet has West Ham leading the race to sign Remy with odds of 5/6 with Crystal Palace coming in second at 4/1. Sunderland, Southampton, and Swansea are also in the running with odds of 10/1 or higher. Remy's fantasy value will increase greatly if he moves away from Stamford Bridge and it will depend heavily on where he ends up.

Loic Remy scored twice to give Chelsea one last win in the Premier League this season, this time a 3-1 win over Sunderland.

The Blues finish the season with 87 points and an eight point lead on Manchester City but it could have easily been more if they didn't get complacent in the last couple of weeks. Loic Remy showed he possesses the quality needed at the top level as he's done all season when filling in for the injured Diego Costa. Costa also scored today and the Chelsea striker force goes into next season healthy and in form. The Blues are already the favorites for the title next season and Costa and Remy will be big part of their run.

Loic Remy will be available for week 35 as Chelsea host Crystal Palace.

We don't know who will start for the Blues so it's recommended to avoid their forwards in formats where you can't make changes past the first match lineup lock. In daily leagues and leagues where you can make changes up to each individual kickoff, the starting Chelsea forward, whether it is Loic Remy or Didier Drogba, will have good fantasy value.

Loic Remy remains questionable for gameweek 33 with a calf injury.

Jose Mourinho stated today that he "doesn't know" if Remy will be fit for the derby against Manchester United this weekend but has a better than 50/50 chance. That tells us almost nothing about who will start against Manchester so we would recommend avoiding both Remy and Didier Drogba in leagues where the lineups lock at the first match. Hopefully Remy plays at least some part of this match and is then nailed on as a starter for the double gameweek coming up in week 34.

Loic Remy was a surprise omission from the Chelsea squad after picking up a muscle injury during the build-up to Sundays’ derby at Loftus Road.

Remy was touted as the player to carry Chelsea to the Premier League title during the absence of Diego Costa but a kick to the calf in training on Saturday ruled the Frenchman out of GW32. Initial reports indicate the problem is only impact which should see a return for visit of Manchester United although if further tests do reveal a strain then the striker could spend weeks on the sidelines. Isaiah Brown who was in Switzerland for the under-19s [UEFA Youth League tournament] was flown back to take his place on the bench. Jose Mourinho is hoping Diego Costa will be available for the Crystal Palace game in early May.
