How Crystal Palace’s players rated in their 1-0 defeat to Chelsea

In attack, they struggled to create clear cut opportunities, but they were coming up against the best defence in the league. 2016 has been an awful year for Palace and they will be hoping that things improve in the new year. Here is how their players rated on Saturday:
