Graham Potter on Chelsea's performance after a hard-fought win

Graham Potter is happy after his team (Chelsea) managed to win in the last minutes. “We're delighted with the result, it's a tough place to come,” Potter told BBC Sport.
“I thought we started quite well but conceded from the first action into the box.

Credit to the boys, they recovered well and did not let their heads go down. It was nice to get an equaliser and get back in the game.
We had to survive moments as they are a good side with dangerous players. To be a goal down and come away with three points is fantastic so credit to the players."
The team showed character and skill.

They did not give up until the very end. "There's character, that's for sure. They could've felt sorry for themselves after conceding the goal but the players stood up all the way through. There was a collective spirit among the players.

We are delighted with the three points."

Thiago Silva's potential red card

There is a lot of talk about whether Thiago Silva could have received a red card. "I thought it was touch and go,” he said.
“The fact he was quite far from the goal saved him and it could've gone the other way.
It's a close one, I can understand Patrick's [Vieira] frustration.

It's a 50-50 one." Gallagher brought victory to Chelsea with a great goal. This is an indication of his good games. "It was written in the stars. Unfortunately it came against Palace but I'm just buzzing to get my first goal.
Everyone knows how much I loved it here [at Palace] and I thank the whole club and the fans - even today with the reception they gave me.
Hopefully I can build a bit of confidence with the goal and push on.

I want to work as hard as I can for him [manager Graham Potter] and be available wherever he needs me, whether starting or coming off the bench”.
