BREDE Hangeland believes Crystal Palace could have got something against Chelsea if there was "another ten minutes" remaining on Saturday.
Fraizer Campbell set up a tense finish when he tapped home in the 90th-minute, and despite an added four minutes Palace were unable to grab an equaliser.
Hangeland couldn't fault the effort from his team-mates against the league leaders but admitted Jose Mourinho's side had more control in the second half.
"On another day we could have nicked something, even won on a good day," believes Hangeland.
"I was about half an inch away from sending us 1-0 up and it could have been a different story.
"It was disappointing in a way – I don't think they created that much, obviously they controlled the game in the second half after going 2-0 up.
"Ten against ten is not really an advantage against that type of team. Like always though, I thought out attitude and work rate was really good.
"Had there been another ten minutes on the clock, who knows? Maybe we could have got an equaliser.
"Individually, Chelsea are very strong. We had some tired legs but I thought the players who came on did well for us."
