Chelsea back on track with victory over Crystal Palace

11 March 2018

The Blues lost back-to-back games against Manchester United and Manchester City and now sit in fifth position, five points behind fourth placed Tottenham Hotspur.

Chelsea claimed three points after a turbulent week, but their performance still left something to be desired as Crystal Palace almost clawed their way back into the match with a display of fighting spirit.

And Conte admits the Blues can not afford to drop many points in the remaining games if they are to qualify for the Champions League. Here is our predicted XI. He's working very hard and he's helping the team without the ball. On the other hand, Chelsea are fifth in the table and are on the outside looking in when it comes to Champions League places for next season. He didn't play a lot of games but despite this his commitment was incredible, he helped me a lot.

The Celtics maintained a double-digit lead for the most of the third, as they took an 86-74 lead into the final frame of the game. The Celtics capped off a three-game road trip with a 2-1 record, making them 5-1 in their past six road games.

Despite next Wednesday's Champions League clash at Barcelona, Conte insisted the Palace game has priority.

Kante's omission from the match day squad to face league leaders Manchester City had raised eyebrows and after the Blues slumped to a 1-0 loss at the Etihad Stadium, reports filtered in that the Frenchman had collapsed on the eve of the tie.

The gaffer hints that he trusts the two forwards but refused to guarantee them a place in the starting line-up against Palace. But the introduction of Wilfried Zaha at half-time gave the visitors renewed heart and Patrick van Aanholt pulled a goal back in the 90th minute to test the nerves of Stamford Bridge unduly.

Chelsea are going to beat Crystal Palace today, right? David Luiz, Ross Barkley and Ethan Ampadu are, however, all sidelined.

"Townsend, for me, is a really good player. You have to regret the games against Bournemouth, Watford and United", he remarks.

Roy Hodgson has lost each of his last three Premier League games at Stamford Bridge, with his only victory there coming on his first visit - 1-0 with Blackburn in April 1998 thanks to a Kevin Gallacher goal. This means that Townsend should be very motivated to perform at the highest level against one of the best sides in the league, particularly with the World Cup in Russian Federation fast approaching.

Arsene Wenger in focus
