Chelsea Fans Are All Saying The Same Thing About Olivier Giroud

Chelsea

The win puts the Blues two points adrift of fourth-placed Spurs in the Premier League and halts successive league defeats.

Conte also revealed defender Antonio Rudiger missed the game with "muscular fatigue" but will be in contention to face Barcelona in the Champions League round of 16 second leg on Wednesday.

Two first-half goals heralded a return to winning ways in the league with Willian the man who set us on our way once again. There is Benteke. There are many good players in this squad. It began with Cesc Fàbregas spinning a pass from deep inside his own half to release Marcos Alonso down the left.

Giroud then hit the post after 66 minutes with a first-time shot from a low cross by Alonso. Today's game provides the ideal opportunity for us to do that, and Antonio Conte has pulled no punches with his team selection. Palace went up 2-0 thanks to goals from Andros Townsend and Patrick van Aanholt, but succumbed to a furious United fightback to lose 3-2.

Chelsea almost took advantage of that let-off, but Tomkins threw himself in the way of yet another goal-bound shot, this time from Willian, and Hennessey saved from Hazard. Unfortunately for the Palace defender, his clearance was in turn blocked by his goalkeeper's flying frame and bounced backwards, via Kelly's knee, into the net.

Antonio Conte's Premier League champions lost 2-1 to the Eagles in October and have the chance of revenge at Stamford Bridge in tomorrow's (1.30am local time) kick-off.

Zaha brought an attacking threat to Palace that had been absolutely lacking in the first half.

Zaha caught Andreas Christensen dallying in his own half and played in Alexander Sørloth, one on one with Courtois. For sure, compare that with the Barcelona game, I think we were not so good in ball possession. Former Blues youngster van Aanholt made things interesting nearing the end of the match when he scored for Palace on stoppage time. The French striker was replaced by Alvaro Morata in the 72nd minute but may have pushed himself into contention for a start at the Camp Nou.

Meanwhile, Crystal Palace will be looking for a win to move them out of the relegation zone and have already beaten Conte's side this season as well as the corresponding fixture last term.
