Chelsea lost at Stamford Bridge for the second time this season, as Palace defeated the Blues 2-1 away from home.
However, Chelsea saw a penalty appeal turned down when Andros Townsend appeared to handle Pedro’s shot inside the area in the 17th minute – and former Arsenal defender Martin Keown believes it could have changed the course of the game had it been given.
“The referee will be disappointed – he wasn’t in the right position,” Keown told Match of the Day.
“For me, it’s a definite handball.
“From one angle, it didn’t like look one, but you see it from another angle and Townsend got away with one there.
“You put your hand out to that extent, but that was the luck they probably deserved on the day.”
