Palace gets first EPL goal, points by beating Chelsea 2-1

As a result, Conte and Chelsea will be eager to see Moses return as soon as possible, while the player himself will be desperate to get playing again.

Conte, who appeared underwhelmed by Chelsea's summer squad-strenghtening with a return to Europe looming after last season's absence, said he was left with few options.

'In this moment we are very thin and same players always have to play. France midfielder N'Golo Kante is sidelined for several weeks with a hamstring problem, while England midfielder Danny Drinkwater is a long-term absentee due to a calf injury.

The young Belgian hardly got a look in last season until scoring the goal that actually sealed the Premier League title and hasn't really been given the opportunity to kick on this season either.

It's better to think about Chelsea, I have two years of contract and I want to live this incredible experience here, I'm learning another culture, another language and another football, and I want to give a chance to my family and my daughter to learn English. Moses it is the first time he has played three games in a row. @DavidLuiz_4 as lovely as ever this morning as he took some time before training to say hello to staff and visitors at Cobham.

"When you have a lot of games, you need to rotate players".

Reportedly furious with Chelsea's limp display at Palace on Saturday, Conte is said to have held a lengthy inquest with his team this week, accusing them of taking it easy and imploring them to raise their work-rate.

"Sometimes you have to take a risk, like [against] Manchester City [when] he got injured, but if I didn't start him you'd tell me I'm insane".

Chelsea top Champions League Group C after thrashing Qarabag and securing an impressive win at Atletico Madrid. "Sometimes the players need to rest instead".

And today Conte admitted in his pre-Roma press conference that he is flattered to be linked back to his homeland. This competition is very important for him and for the team.
