Zaha admits head was all over the place after failed move

Wilfried Zaha has admitted that his head was all over the place after failing to secure a big move away from Crystal Palace in the summer. The Ivory Coast international was linked with a move to Arsenal and Everton but Palace stood firm on keeping the player. Zaha who signed a five-year-contract worth £130,000-a-week last year was supposedly coerced to continue at the club under Roy Hodgson.  However, with the Eagles currently sitting 6th on the log, he stated that his respect for the manager, teammates, and fans enabled him to look past the disappointment and come up with impressive performances.

Conte admits that Chelsea is struggling to compete on several fronts

  Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has admitted that his side is struggling to cope with the pressure of competing on several fronts after they were beaten by Crystal Palace in the Premier League over the weekend. Chelsea won the Premier League last season competing on fewer fronts than they are now and things are not going as smoothly as they would have hoped. Crystal Palace came into the game at Selhurst Park on the back of a winless run this season, and no goal registered. However, they sprung a surprise and we're impressive against the Champions who seemed out of sorts to garner all 3 points, leaving Chelsea to wallow in their second defeat in a row, and third of the season so far.
