They will be looking to close the gap though, as they host Crystal Palace on Saturday. Andreas Christensen has been subject to individual defensive errors in Chelsea's last three outings and hence has to be more wary of his game now.

"The teams ahead of us are going with a great velocity and it is important for us to not drop points in games, and in the future exploit the games we have at home. The game will be totally different", Conte said.

"I think the work rate that I am delivering to the team is a lot".

"We have to try to have the same focus, the same attention as the first leg against Barcelona. I hope in my heart to see him in this 11, to continue this performance because he is playing very well". It was their fourth defeat in five Premier League games which included dismal three-goal losses at home to Bournemouth and at Watford.

"It won't be easy". You can also catch the Premier League game on the go as well on Hostar app. At the same time we have to try the right solution to play this game.

Martin Kelly's own goal following Davide Zappacosta's shot saw Chelsea cruising before half-time, but Patrick van Aanholt's goal against his former club set up a nervy conclusion.

Conte backed striker Olivier Giroud, whose attempts to break his Premier League duck for the Blues were thwarted by Palace defender James Tomkins in the first half and the woodwork in the second.

Conte says N'Golo Kante is fine, in good form and has trained all week. Considering that it's the final stretch of games and our entire season depends on it, maybe putting those learnings into effect will be a good idea, right?

"It's a pity that at the end we conceded the goal".

However, Palace now sit in 17th place in the Premier League and will be seeking a result at Stamford Bridge to help pull them away from the relegation zone.

Chelsea have had a bad couple of weeks, losing twice in Manchester to United and City, but I am expecting them to be much improved on their return to Stamford Bridge.

The Blues' boss knows too well the threat of Zaha, but warned his players to be wary of striker Benteke and winger Townsend too.

Hodgson said: "The level of commitment wasn't good enough in the first half". I think then he will grow and grow.

Palace nearly pulled one back early in the second half, as Sorloth charged through on goal and blasted against the left-hand post.

After a brief rally following the appointment of Roy Hodgson, Palace are once again struggling to pick up wins in the league.
