Chelsea 2-1 Crystal Palace: 5 Talking Points
Antonio Conte can finally breathe a sign of relief!
Chelsea ended their three-match winless run and got the three points they were hungry for! Willian's deflected shot gave the hosts the lead in the 25th minute.
Crystal Palace were then bombarded with attacks by Chelsea but they were doing well to block them all out. However, all that came to an end after Martin Kelly's clearance hit Wayne Hennessey, and then hit him and went in.
Palace had a goal controversially denied just before they scored one right at the end. Here are the five talking points from the game:
#5 Have players stopped listening to Conte?
Last season, when Conte was shouting out commands from the touchline, every single Chelsea player was listening to him and doing what he wanted. Now, they need to have become their own bosses.
During the first half, it was quite clear that Eden Hazard and Marcos Alonso were paying no heed to what the manager was asking them to do.
Conte kept shouting at them but they continued doing what they felt like doing.
Surprisingly, Davide Zappacosta was doing the same during the second half. Have the players lost their trust in the manager? It clearly looks like that.
