The Blues succumbed to a 2-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge against Alan Pardew’s Palace side but Jose Mourinho feels Chelsea deserved not to lose because his side did enough to at least gain a draw.
He said: “Congratulations to Palace. It’s a fantastic result for them and a very good performance. We didn’t deserve to lose.
“But Palace gave us a very difficult game. The result should be a draw, which would still be bad for us.
“We did enough not to lose. We had good opportunities, a huge penalty appeal at 0-0.”

The Manager went on to blame himself for his team defeat.
Mourinho blames himself for Chelsea defeat
The Blues boss says he should have made changes during his side’s shock defeat to Crystal Palace but feels that, on the whole, his team did not deserve to lose the game
“I cannot say I had 11 players at the same time performing. To be fair, two or three of them, individual performances were far from good,” he said.
“I blame myself for not changing one of them, because I kept him in the game for 90 minutes. When I made the third change, I realized I needed a fourth.”
“If a player is not performing, there are two ways: trust the player and wait for improve, or… have to change. I can go both.”
