The game was originally scheduled for the weekend of the FA Cup semi-final but, with both teams in the last four of that competition, it has had to be brought forward.
It adds another fixture to the Blues' schedule before their trip to Wembley on 23rd April – Roberto Martinez's side will play Palace, Southampton and Liverpool in the 10 days prior to the cup semi.
Coincidentally, West Ham and Manchester United will play their FA Cup Quarter Final replay on the 13th with the winner facing Everton in the last four.
