Antonio Conte expects sleepless night after shock defeat to Crystal Palace

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has said he hopes Victor Moses returns from injury soon after he was forced out of today's 2-1 loss at his former club Crystal Palace.

Yet, his failings are not the only reason for Chelsea's barren start, because goals have dried up in other areas of the pitch as well.

The Spaniard, a 60 million-pound signing from Real Madrid, could be back for the visit of AS Roma in the Champions League on Wednesday, and based on the evidence so far this season, Chelsea should be a far better team as a result.

He said: "When you start a game without Morata and without Kante, it's not simple".

"It will be very hard for me to sleep", he said.

Against a team that had lost each of their previous seven Premier League fixtures this season without scoring a solitary goal, the Blues suffered their second successive defeat and third from eight games in the league. For this reason we have to put 150 percent in; 100 percent won't be enough.

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.

"For sure we have to find the strength to overcome this moment". I don't know if he'll be in the starting XI, but he's been working very well.

Questions have been raised about the depth of his squad this season and the Italian added: "The situation is very clear and everyone can see that situation". We want to try to be competitive in all competitions but it won't be easy.

"He's been a very important player for us".
