Blues fans tear into player after poor first-half vs. Crystal Palace

Sarri tells Moses he is free to leave Chelsea

Maurizio Sarri gave an explanation as to why Victor Moses and Danny Drinkwater are out of favour at Chelsea as his side prepare to face Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Sunday.

Maurizio Sarri's side now sit third in the table - two points adrift of joint leaders Manchester City and Liverpool - following last weekend's win at Burnley so Chelsea will be desperate to maintain the pressure with another victory in west London on Sunday.

James McArthur stabbed a clever through-ball forward for Townsend, who raced clear of David Luiz before drilling a powerful low finish into the bottom corner - his first goal in 20 Premier League games.

Maurizio Sarri is one game away from levelling the record for the best unbeaten start to management in the Premier League - 11 set by Frank Clark in charge of Nottingham Forest during the 1994/95 season.

"I haven't played too many minutes, whether it be in the Premier League and the Championship, and at 22 it's not seen as enough by some people".

Sarri will be looking to maintain his unbeaten start when Crystal Palace visit Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The 22-year-old impressed whilst on loan at Selhurst Park last season and Eagles boss Roy Hodgson has assured the midfielder there will always be a place for him at the club.




Wilfried Zaha - a frustrating day for the star.

FW Pedro Rodriguez, 7 - Has had a tough time of late with injuries and illness, but remains the most clinical finisher in the Chelsea squad and underlined his status with a deadly first-time finish from Alonso's low cross in the second half. He improved also from a tactical and technical point of view.

Mateo Kovacic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek were both on the bench, with both players better suited to a more attacking role.

Three thoughts on Chelsea's 3-1 win vs.

Alonso scored six goals and made three assists in 32 appearances in Chelsea FC's title-winning season to prove a big at the west London outfit. Had he been partnered by a proper striker, then who knows what might have possible in this game and where they might sit in the table, instead of 14th with only eight goals to their name.

And with Eden Hazard also likely to miss out on the full match, Barkley will be required to get involved in attacking the Palace goal, testing Wayne Hennessey.
