Crystal Palace boss Hodgson unhappy with Chelsea defeat

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson was disappointed after their 2-0 defeat by Chelsea.

Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic were on again on the scoresheet for the Blues.

Hodgson said afterwards, "I thought we weathered the early storm well. We controlled an opponent in very good form.

"Eventually they scored a good goal, but the second goal was a little unfortunate as we were starting to grow into the game and looking a little bit likely ourselves. Then it was very difficult for us to get back into it.

"It's an unfortunate spell we find ourselves in, but I can't say I'm disappointed with our performance."
