The Blues suffered a shocking defeat to Crystal Palace as they went down to 2 – 1 without their injured star players – Eden Hazard and N’Golo Kante.
The first goal came in the 629th seconds an own goal from Cesar Azpilicueta which begins the disastrous moment for the Blues.
Wilfred Zaha caused nightmares for the Chelsea side who were out-battled in midfield all afternoon due to the absence of their star man, N’Golo Kante. Palace got their first win of the season against the blues this afternoon.
The blues defenders went from among the best in the league to “top-flop” without N’Golo Kante. Gary Cahill, Luis and Azpilicueta are all experienced but were out-battled.
Michy Batshuayi was hauled off in the 57th minute for Pedro after a fruitless display managing gets only 19 touches and didn’t get a shot on target. Batshuayi has failed to win Conte over in his first away league start of his Chelsea career, and he may have to wait for a while longer to get another chance.
Morata has to remain the Blues and will return against Roma in the mid-week. Moses’ hamstring injury will make things harder for Conte, who needs to make his line-up stable to avoid a horrible season.
