Conte questions Chelsea's ability to defend title

Antonio Conte Chelsea Crystal Palace

GETTY Antonio Conte’s Chelsea take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park this afternoon

Everyone can see our situation.

However, there was some good news for Chelsea fans as Conte confirmed that he is hoping to have Morata back available for selection for Wednesday's Champions League clash against Roma at Stamford Bridge.

"I repeat - my job is to be focused on my work with my players, try and do our best".

The Nigeria global has emerged as a key player for Antonio Conte and played a huge role in the club's title triumph last season.

Eden Hazard contributed 16 goals to last season's title-winning campaign but is yet to score this season, while Pedro scored nine times last season but has only found the net once this term. "This season we are facing four competitions and we are having a few problems doing this", Conte said.

Midfield: Chelsea have problems in the middle of the park as N'Golo Kante is on the sidelines with a hamstring injury that he suffered while away with France during the global break. "When you have a few injuries, you are in trouble".

A Cesar Azpilicueta own goal gave Palace the lead before Tiemoue Bakayoko equalised in the 18th minute.

Chelsea's diagnosis on Moses leaves the 26-year-old in a race to regain his fitness before Conte's side face Manchester United on November 5. You know very well the potential of the other teams but it is important for us to look at ourselves. This season will be very hard for us.

"Today's opportunity has gone by, though, and we let that slip". They struggled without the Spanish striker against Palace, with Michy Batshuayi failing to impress.

"I think the performance of the whole team was bad, not one player or two players, but all the players today".

Conte may chose to freshen things up in attack though with Pedro pushing for a recall which would see Willian dropping back to the bench. But also because we have Morata and then Batshuayi.

"It is normal to be angry after a bad performance, but every player had a bad performance". "Not one or two players".
