Chelsea beats Palace in EPL before trip to Barcelona

Chelsea 2-1 Crystal Palace: Disallowed goal questioned by Roy Hodgson Chelsea edge Crystal Palace to get back to winning ways
Chelsea Rogers | 11 March, 2018, 01:57

Although Willian did not manage to add to that, his opener was his fifth in his last five games across all competitions, while he generally caught the eye throughout.

"We have to try to have the same focus, the same attention as the first leg against Barcelona".

With nine games left to go, it's very much all to play for, but we need to start picking up points - and fast.

"It won't be easy".

"The best way sometimes is to speak with the players and to try to find together the right plan to face this game".

The Brazilian gave the Blues the lead with a deflected effort, and an own-goal from Martin Kelly just minutes later set the Blues on the way to a comfortable win, despite a late goal from Patrick van Aanholt.

"He was a bit unlucky today", said Conte.

Chelsea made the early running in a muted Stamford Bridge atmosphere and nearly broke the deadlock after only nine minutes when Wayne Hennessey kept out an effort from N'Golo Kante as striker Olivier Giroud tried to make contact just in front of him. For a lot of the game, we dominated and created many chances to score. "But the commitment of all my players was good".

A record low 26.5 million people watched Sunday night's telecast, a almost 20 per cent drop versus past year . Viewership for both the Golden Globes on NBC and Grammy Awards on CBS in January dropped from past year .

Against Manchester United and Palace Willian completed eight dribbles in each match, having not completed over seven in any other Premier League game this season.

"It's important to have balance within the game, because when we lose our balance it's very hard".

Chelsea are hosting Crystal Palace this evening knowing that only three points will do if we want to be playing Champions League football next season.

Palace boss Roy Hodgson barely disguised his criticism of striker Christian Benteke, who was taken off at half-time as the return of Wilfried Zaha transformed the visitors.

"I don't think we had all 11 doing that in the first half".

Zaha was back following a knee injury, but Hodgson did not regret leaving the forward out of the starting XI.

Hazard blasted a shot over the bar before Sorloth thought he had pulled a goal back, only for the whistle to blow for a foul in the build-up.

He said: "I saw it from the touchline".
