Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola warned his under-achieving squad that they are playing for their futures at the Etihad Stadium.
The defeat to Palace has not unduly concerned Conte.
'Today they answered those critics straight away with a really professional, well-thought-out performance, got the goals at great times, Hazard... exceptional tonight, the way they played was a team that was experienced, who wanted to get the job done.

"To handle a situation at 1-0 (up), we are not comfortable, not yet. It is a process to improve and we are still in the process, and we must improve in those terms".
Jesus Navas was again at right-back, but Chelsea's opener came down the other flank.

Gabriel Jesus has returned to training with Manchester City seven weeks after breaking a bone in his foot.
Chelsea wing-back Victor Moses is a major doubt after missing the Palace game with a calf strain, which saw Pedro fill in on the right flank.
