We didn't take a lot of chances we created today. Antonio Conte's side is locked with Barcelona at 1-1 heading into the second leg on Wednesday.

Chelsea made the early running in a muted Stamford Bridge atmosphere and nearly broke the deadlock after only nine minutes when Wayne Hennessey kept out an effort from N'Golo Kante as striker Olivier Giroud tried to make contact just in front of him.

The in-form Willian got the first, as his 25-yard effort took a deflection on its way in, before Martin Kelly put into his own net after a Davide Zappacosta shot caused problems.

The 29-year-old is enjoying his best season at Chelsea, with his goal against Palace his fifth in as many games and his 13th of the season. "The commitment of all my players was good so we must be very happy".

Goldman Sachs boss Blankfein 'planning to exit' as early as year-end
Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which received nearly universal praise from Wall St. executives, including Blankfein. Cohn resigned his position at the White House earlier this week and is not expected to return to Goldman.

Against Manchester United and Palace Willian completed eight dribbles in each match, having not completed over seven in any other Premier League game this season. "You hope to kill the game but the players managed the last few minutes in the best way".

"He was a bit unlucky today, but at the same time we must be pleased for his commitment", Conte said of Giroud.

Patrick van Aanholt grabbed a consolation in stoppage time but it mattered little in the grand scheme of things and Chelsea moved to within two points of fourth-placed Tottenham ahead of their trip to Bournemouth on Sunday.

"If we want to fight for a place in the Champions League, it will be very important to not drop points".

Alabama edges Texas A&M on buzzer-beater
The Alabama Crimson Tide are shooting 32.3 percent from beyond the arc and 66.9 percent from the free throw line. Allen has scored 20-plus points three times this year, and the Gators have won all three of those games .

Palace boss Roy Hodgson made a half-time change as he tried to find a route back into the game, bringing on Wilfried Zaha for Christian Benteke.

Zaha was back following a knee injury, but Hodgson did not regret leaving the forward out of the starting XI.

Sorloth had a late effort ruled out for a foul as Chelsea, who brought on Pedro for Cesc Fabregas and Tiemoue Bakayoko for Eden Hazard as they seemed set to coast to the finishing line.

He said: "I saw it from the touchline. And they tell me there wasn't too much wrong with it".

Stop whinging, Warne says as Warner row heats up
Given that de Kock did not react to Warner at all in the footage, South Africa feel he has no case to answer. He could also be fined 100 percent of his match fee from the first test.
