Palace Stun Champions Chelsea

Antonio Conte admits Chelsea are going through a "difficult moment" after the Premier League champions crashed to a shock 2-1 defeat by lowly Crystal Palace on Saturday. For this reason we have to put 150% in; 100% won't be enough.

Gary Cahill urged Chelsea to go on the kind of relentless winning run that resulted in them taking control of the title race after a slow start last season.

"You saw the real Chelsea last season and it is important we try and emulate that sort of form".

Chelsea have lost their last two league games.

Victor Moses was an integral player for Chelsea last season as they won the English premier league title for the second time in three years and also helped his country Nigeria secure a berth at next year world cup in Russian Federation 2018.

Given how impactful Moses has been under Conte he will be major loss, and it will be a challenge for the Italian manager to find someone who can replace him on the right flank. "This season we are facing four competitions and we are having a few problems doing this", Conte said.

"When you have a few injuries, you're in trouble. This season will be very hard - we must put in 150 per cent".

Big win for the #Palace today no coincidence it coincided with #Zaha being back. gets the victor!

Should Alvaro Morata return in midweek that solves one problem that emerged during the defeat at Selhurst Park, namely Michy Batshuayi.

"I think the performance of the whole team was bad, not one player or two players, but all the players today".

"It is normal to be angry after a bad performance, but every player had a bad performance". But also because we have Morata and then Batshuayi [as our only strikers].
