Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, says his side can not afford to drop more points from now til the end of the season following their recent struggles. "Sometimes it is important also to share the responsibility with the players that you have to prepare for this type of game", he said.

Conte has also been heavily linked with a return to his previous job as Italian national coach in recent weeks, although this latest report suggests his future will lie in club football and not at worldwide level.

"I tried to keep him for another season but he wanted to play and I understood this".

The second leg of Chelsea's Champions League round-of-16 tie against Barcelona on Wednesday looms large ahead of the Palace game, but Conte insisted that his players will not be distracted from the task at hand.

Speculation has suggested the Brazil worldwide is not happy in France, despite making a fine start to life with PSG, racking up 19 goals and 13 assists in 20 Ligue 1 appearances.

Chelsea have lost four of their last five Premier League matches and face a struggling Crystal Palace side tomorrow evening. I can take different decisions. He didn't play a lot of games but, despite this, his commitment is incredible and he helped me a lot in the changing room.

"I did this when I was a player", he recalled.

The Metro add that PSG will once again shell out on bolstering their ranks with the addition of three Blues players. Olivier played against West Brom from the start and played against Hull, and then came on in every game, I think. "But I repeat, I don't like to speak to the press what happens with one player, with two players, with the team".

Former Chelsea captain Terry returned to the club's Cobham Training Centre on Thursday, greeting his former teammates and manager. He killed me in a bad way, not in a soft way. "Then I have to decide who". I was on the bench against Piacenza'.
