Chelsea are starting to put together a nice little run in the Premier League.

The defeat against Crystal Palace, at Selhurst Park, seems an age away as Chelsea start to get back into the habit of showing they could still play a role in the destination of the 2017 / 2018 Premier League title.

After the 3-1 win against Newcastle United, Antonio Conte had this to say about the performance,

‘I think our start wasn’t good enough. After going 1-0 down, we started to play with good intensity and good football. Our start was a bit slow.

‘We did well after only two days’ rest. It was a solid performance despite the goal. We showed good motivation and good intensity. I made rotations in the game and the response of my players was positive.

‘I think that today, to play and win after two days of rest means a lot. Newcastle had the advantage with one day more of rest.’

But what did Conte think of Hazard`s cheeky penalty that wrapped the game up?

This is what the boss had to say to the Sky Sports team,

‘The most important thing is to score. The player can decide to shoot in every way, but the important thing is to score, otherwise it can make me a bit angry.’

Onwards and upwards Chelsea!
