Palace talisman Zaha back in training ahead of Chelsea trip

Crystal Palace vs Chelsea Preview Can either bounce back from tough defeats

Antonio Conte was not overly concerned by the amount of chances Chelsea wasted in Saturday's 2-1 win over Crystal Palace, adamant the overall performance was a pleasing one.

Palace lie in the relegation zone, but a result against Antonio Conte's side will see them climb out of the drop. As things stand, Palace are placed 18 in the league table with 27 points.

To have been leading 2-0 and in complete control of the game and then falling to a last-minute loss must have been galling for Palace, especially after they conceded a late victor against Tottenham in their previous game.

The defending Premier League champions are on a hard run of form to heap pressure on their Italian head coach Antonio Conte.

Crystal Palace: Eagles boss Roy Hodgson has a number of injury concerns to contend with, the most pertinent being Wilfried Zaha. Giroud offered a focal point but also a poaching instinct, and might have turned a Kanté shot past Wayne Hennessey in the eighth minute had his foot been an inch longer.

"They've played two of the top teams, and lost in the last minute in both of them". The match will be held at Stamford Bridge in London. His presence in the middle of the park ensures that Chelsea's creative forwards will enjoy more freedom in possession than they are used to.

Indeed, Crystal Palace could become only the second team to win three consecutive away Premier League games at Stamford Bridge, after Blackburn Rovers (1993-94 to 1995-96). So when you have a player out for anything length of time there's always a risk you'll push for him to come back earlier than he should.

Zaha suffered a knee ligament injury against Newcastle United on February 4, with initial reports indicating he could miss the rest of the season.

"The second half was much better - I thought that we were more aggressive and pushed up better from the back and played as we'd hoped to right from the first whistle". They have fantastic players and are a brilliantly run club, a powerful club.

Conte said David Luiz and Ross Barkley were injured and he had to "check a couple of situations", without going into further detail. They are expected to be without the likes of Connor Wickham, Scott Dann, Jason Puncheon, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Bakary Sako, Julian Speroni and Mamadou Sakho.
