Chelsea fans feeling negative ahead of Crystal Palace trip

Being six points off the Premier League leaders at this stage of the season is nothing to feel concerned about, but for some Chelsea fans, they are in a negative mood.

Antonio Conte’s men currently sit fourth in the table and are slightly off the pace in the title race, with both Manchester clubs currently dominating.

Before the international break, the Blues’ five-game unbeaten run in the division came to an end when they were beaten 1-0 by Manchester City, who reside at the top of the standings.

Ahead of Saturday’s trip to Crystal Palace, the reigning English champions have some injury concerns, with Alvaro Morata and N’Golo Kante on the treatment table.

The Blues are the overwhelming favourites to get a result at Selhurst Park given that their opponents are yet to pick up a point having lost seven matches on the trot.

Some Chelsea fans, though, are not hugely confident about getting a result, while others think that team selection is vital.
