Chelsea now sits fifth in the Premier League, five points behind Tottenham Hotspur, who occupy the final spot for next year's European competition.

The Blues have won 12 and lost only one of their last 19 home league matches in all competitions.

For Palace, the situation is the bottom-half equivalent of a top-four scrap. However, they can make up some gap on their rivals this week as Manchester United and Liverpool play each other on the same day.

Crystal Palace dropped all three points against Manchester United after taking a 2-0 lead last weekend in what was a disappointing night.

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.

The defeat leaves the Eagles stranded in 18th place, one point adrift of Southampton in 17th. They'll be champions of England until a new champion is crowned. We don't think so.

Chelsea are in danger of losing three successive top-flight home London derbies to the same opposition for the first time since 1974 (against Arsenal). It will be a case of discussing with him, the doctor and the physios regarding when he's ready to come back.

The Premier League champions have been widely criticised for their poor showing against Manchester City, with Conte getting the bigger stick for adopting a defensive approach in the game. Tiemoue Bakayoko is injured while Ross Barkley has failed to prove his fitness till date.

The visitors have a lengthy injury list. Wilfried Zaha, Joel Ward and Yohan Cabaye are doubts for the game. We deserved to win.

Roy Hodgson's men have scored in all of their last six away matches, having started the season without a goal in their opening eight games on the road.

Tomkins then launched himself at the ball to keep out Willian's goalbound shot and Giroud was thwarted by the long legs of Hennessey from a Thibaut Courtois punt upfield. The return of key players in due course will help them start winning games against sides around them in the league.
