Chelsea beat Crystal Palace without Victor Moses

Chelsea beat Crystal Palace without Victor Moses

"N'Golo is fine", Conte said.

"It's been really good", the Belgium striker told Sky Sports when asked about linking up again with his former Chelsea boss in the summer.

Antonio Conte has confirmed N'Golo Kante passed out before Chelsea's match against Manchester City last weekend but has been given assurances from the club's medical staff that the French midfielder has staged a full recovery. The Frenchman returned to the heart of the home midfield and was as busy as ever, setting the high tempo that Chelsea needed.

Giroud headed over from a Davide Zappacosta cross, but the Blues did not have to wait long before doubling their advantage.

Roy Hodgson and Antonio Conte were in the opposite dugouts when England played Italy in a friendly in March 2015.

On paper, Crystal Palace are better equipped to tackle the challenge, which admittedly looks increasingly ominous by the day.

The ball seemed to take a fractional deflection as it sped past Kelly and Giroud and went in off the near post. An 88th minute Harry Kane goal settled their contest at Selhurst Park recently in a 1-0 win for Tottenham. It began with Cesc Fàbregas spinning a pass from deep inside his own half to release Marcos Alonso down the left. The Belgian pushed the ball to his right where Zappacosta was advancing once more. His angled shot hit Kelly, bounced off the head of Hennessey, back onto Kelly, and in.

At the other end, Chelsea failed to find a third - Willian had a shot blocked by the courageous James Tomkins and a free-kick turned away by Hennessey, who also denied Hazard. He didn't play a lot of games but despite this his commitment was incredible, he helped me a lot. Seizing on a miscontrol from Andreas Christensen in the 49th minute, Zaha set Alexander Sørloth clear on goal.

Thibaut Courtois should be the man in goal. With Palace 18th in the table, it is vital the team can call on the services of Zaha and the other injured first-team players in time for the run-in.

Willian celebrates giving Chelsea the lead against Barcelona. We have to try to have the same focus, the same attention as the first leg against Barcelona.

Palace almost halved the deficit just after the restart when Alexander Sorloth hit the post, but that proved to be one of few opportunities for the visitors, who slipped to a fourth successive league defeat.
