Chelsea recovered from that shock defeat to beat Manchester City on Wednesday and still hold a seven-point lead over their nearest rivals, who just about kept in touch with a miraculous comeback win over Swansea in midweek.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte described his side's gritty victory as a "big win" but said 90 points may be needed before they can start celebrating.
"I like to say only the winners write history", he said.
"I know he was never nominated for the best three players of the year here in England".
"For this reason, we must be focused and try to win six games".
"I was expecting from the beginning of the season to fight for the Premier League until the end. we are a little bit disappointed, but I am quite happy with the way we made good things in this season". "Otherwise it will be a good season, but not a great season". The visitors equalized later on after Courtois deflected Silva's shot into the waiting legs of Sergio Aguero.
Hazard has his penalty saved before scoring their second goal from the rebound.
And when you consider that Pedro had to fill in for Moses against Palace, and struggled at times in the defensive third of the field, Conte needs a player like Kolasinac to not only provide adequate cover, but also put pressure on those in the first team.

While the investigation does not establish a connection between the detainees and the suicide bomber in the St. Petersburg attack, Mirziyoev said " for all of us terror has no borders and no ethnicity ".
"It's an honor to have the fantastic players I have".
"But I think we suffered as a team in the right way".
With City, without a win in four games, a further two points back in fourth, Guardiola's chief concern will be ensuring they keep above Arsenal and Manchester United in the scrap for qualification for next season's Champions League.
For much of the top-of-the-table encounter, the runaway league leaders had been second best to City whose elegant passing and long spells of possession bore all the hallmarks of former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola.
"We have to think about the last seven, eight games left to get in the Champions League".
Kompany has had to work hard to convince Guardiola that he is fit enough for a chance, and believes his return should serve as a message to the club's young players that effort on the training pitch will get you a chance at City.
"It's an honour to have the awesome players I have", said the former Barcelona coach. He was nominated I think once in his career here as player of the month. After that you can win, you can lose.
