'Outstanding' - Chelsea fans full of praise for defender in Palace win

  • Kante strike earns Chelsea slim win at Crystal Palace

Palace went into the game seeking to extend a three-match unbeaten streak that included a famous win over Manchester City before Christmas, but they struggled to prise the ball away from a Chelsea side determined to avoid a repeat of their Selhurst Park defeat last season.

"We have to see if the club will want him", Willian said.

"We haven't had very good physical impact, so we are in trouble in the box".

After the game, Sarri said, as quoted by Birmingham Live: "The problem is his ankle".

Morata and Giroud have managed just six Premier League goals between them this season, fewer than Southampton's Danny Ings, who has netted on seven occasions.

As far as Christian Pulisic is concerned, however, there seems to be a very mixed message concerning his future with some outlets claiming he's agreed and signed personal terms with Chelsea while others say the race to sign him is still on.

Sarri, though, has a paucity of options as striker Olivier Giroud suffered an ankle injury, adding to injuries for Cesc Fabregas (neck), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (back), Pedro (hamstring) and Callum Hudson-Odoi (hamstring). We need continuity in motivation and as a effect, in determination on the pitch because in the last months, we had some difficulties to find continuity.

In the last five minutes, Wilfried Zaha blasted over, while substitute Connor Wickham repeated the trick shortly afterwards as Palace fired another blank.

'Our first half was disciplined and focused and we limited their goalscoring chances. I will have a meeting with the doctor.

"It is never easy to play here or control it here especially when they (Palace) play long balls but we did well".

"I only didn't like that we weren't able to kill the match". He lost two or three unsafe balls and I think it was better to move the ball quicker. Better in the second half, I think, because in the first half we did everything very well but too slowly. While there has been plenty of conjecture over Hazard's future - with the Belgian admitting his quandary over whether to pursue a "dream" move to Real Madrid - Willian is happy to bide his time.
