People seem to have forgotten that City gave us a runaround back at the Etihad Stadium. They should have won the game but we only won thanks to some clinical counter attacks and catastrophic defending from them. Palace rode their luck against us today and I think we're need to do the same in some ways on Wednesday.

...And having a different Costa to the one we are having now.

Costa plays a key part in our games and he hasn't been the same since China.

Things change. Just because we beat City then when we looked invincible, doesn't mean it's routine especially when some individuals are not the same since we last met City.

Just hope Hazard turns up again on Wednesday because he is critical.

Do people really expect Pedro to do well at WB? Yeah, he scored a few goals from that position in the FA Cup but he's never fully convinced and was even given the runaround by Wolves. Asking him to do it in the Premier League, even at home, is suicidal, especially against the likes of Zaha, Puncheon etc. And not to mention, it was so awkward watching him trying to beat players from wide areas. Said this from last season, he's never looked comfortable when asked to do. Surprised Conte didn't play Willian at WB instead.

Not his defending as a wing back I'm criticizing. He really wasn't troubled much in that respect since we on the front foot nearly the entire 90. It's the fact that he got in to promising position after promising position and didn't deliver. Don't remember him even having a go at goal either.

One penalty denied in the first half.
There was no aerial power, essential in this type of situation.
Costa missed twice, the one was dead easy for him.
Now it becomes a thriller.

So what exactly does Costa have to do to be dropped? He was so insufferable to watch.

Like I said, do you expect him to perform better while playing at WB? As one of the front 3 attackers, he doesn't really have to beat players and can focus on linking up and finishing chances. It's a different story altogether when playing him at WB - he's had to constantly beat players (which is not his strength) and stay out wide as opposed to coming inside and playing to his strengths.

The whole team needs to turn up, not just Hazard. We won't beat City if we only 2-3 players on their game and the rest go AWOL.

He was essentially a winger today. Similar job today as he normally has. He was forward most of the time and only had a bit of defending to do which he has done most matches anyways. Don't think it was his position that was the issue today. Just that he wasn't decisive enough when he got into great positions.

This is the reason someone like Sanchez would take us to a whole new level. He'd have scored 3 today if he were in some of the positions we were in.

True. Can't argue with this. Though I wouldn't expect Costa to turn up. He's gone in the head now IMO.

Disagree. He's more like an inside forward when playing at the front - less focus on creating, more on linking up and finishing. Bloody different to when his task is primarily to create from wide areas.

4 league defeats this season. All 4 in London. Weird...

Palace hadn't picked up a point and scored a goal in a London derby this season before today...

fair play to Palace, today just wasnt our day, but we were farking playing at home, i expect this kind of result away against Palace, but never at home. Hope Conte gives this lot a huge kick up the arse, today the team was a mess, this needs to be a wake up call, because there still a lot do to, title race is far from over, can´t farking relax.

*Chelsea scores*
Chelsea: Wow, this looks it's going to be another easy day for us.
Crystal Palace: APRIL FOOLS!
*Chelsea gets pie on their faces and Palace scores twice*

That's how they beat us.

The gods of football so decided. Without national you'd never lost this match.

 

Our success so far is due to Conte's strict diet and training programs not quality of our team. These breaks fuck up his every program.
