BBC Sport's Gary Rose: "This was a third defeat in four Premier League games for Crystal Palace and leaves them looking firmly over their shoulders as the prospect of being involved in a relegation battle looms large.

"Despite that, there were some reasons for encouragement as Palace were good value for their first-half lead, with Chelsea struggling to lay a glove on them.

"The early goal in the second half was a blow but despite some Chelsea pressure they were looking on course for a well-earned point before the Blues' late double.

"Still, the pressure remains on Roy Hodgson and it doesn't get any easier with a huge game at fellow strugglers Everton up next."
