Winning EPL will be tough, says Chelsea manager Conte

That result, coupled with Tottenham's win at Burnley, means the Blues' lead at the top has been cut to seven points, and two of their next three games are against the Manchester clubs.

"At the end (of the season) if we deserve to win the title we will be very happy. Every game will be very tough from now until the end, whether the team is Manchester City or a side fighting in the relegation zone".

"In every game here, anything can happen because the league is so strong", Conte was quoted as saying by the Guardian. Their resurgence under new boss Sam Allardyce continues. In England it doesn't exist an easy game.

Be it the last-gasp victor from Manchester City's Sergio Aguero to take the glory away from Manchester United's hands on goal difference or Leicester City, a team touted to fight a relegation battle, going on to win the EPL in a 38-match season. This makes the match on Thursday against Manchester City all the more important for the Blues.

"Wilf made a decision to play for the country he was born in". Conte, however, insists his side will treat it like any other game. "His potential's becoming a reality". But it's very hard to find a reply to this result. Now we have to think about the next game. Sometimes players respond better to that and let's hope that's the case. It's a pity but it wasn't our day.

Striker Christian Benteke says Crystal Palace can be proud of their stunning win at Chelsea but still have work to do.

"Saturday for sure was not our day because we created a lot of chances to score a goal and we dominated the game, and when you lose this type of game in your mind you try to answer a lot of questions but it is very hard to find the right one for this result". "We dominated the game". Honourable mentions for goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey and Benteke, who has a known admirer in Conte. That has helped with our defensive resilience: "one goal conceded in four games, and we've won all four with him in the side".

"They didn't let their heads go down which is what I saw when I first came".

"The two goals we scored shocked Chelsea and put them on the back foot".
