"The injury was in the last five minutes of training, so I'm not sure whether he has to rest for two or 10 days".

"We played a very good match and for 85 minutes we were in full control". Yesterday [Saturday], in 10 minutes we had three injuries - Fabregas, [Loftus-Cheek] and [Danny] Drinkwater - then Giroud, and we were already without Pedro and [Hudson-Odoi].

'I thought he was a good signing from Liverpool's point of view, but he's been kept out of the team by some very strong players.

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

Chelsea got their way back and now must do everything to remain in the top four - a battle as tough as the one they started for the Premier League title before falling first of three. I will have a meeting with the doctor.

"We could have scored early but they also did a great match defensively, which is why it was so hard", Chelsea's Luiz told reporters. He lost two or three risky balls and I think it was better to move the ball quicker.

'We were better in the second half, because in the first half we did everything very well but too slowly.

Antonio Rudiger headed tamely into the arms of Palace goalkeeper Vicente Guaita before Kante sent a more forceful shot wide as Chelsea enjoyed the better of the opening exchanges. 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.

Still, there appears the added competition from AC Milan, although the Italian side's Financial Fair Play concerns may mean that the Blues could take advantage over the proceedings by discussing a straight-cash deal rather than going with monthly settlements.

Jorginho blasted wide as Chelsea pressed again, and Sarri's side won a free kick 25 yards out after a foul on Hazard, Willian's effort hitting the outside of the post.
