Crystal Palace 1-4 Chelsea: The blues are back to 4th position

Chelsea put on a show in London on Saturday afternoon, cruising to an emphatic 4-1 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
The Blues raced into a two-goal lead inside 10 minutes, after Kai Havertz curled a clever shot into the far corner of the net, and Christian Pulisic blasted home from a tight angle. Havertz almost added a third soon after, but Vicente Guaita clawed away his low effort.

The Spanish shot-stopper could do little to deny Kurt Zouma from notching a third on the half-hour mark, as the defender powered home a towering header from a delightful Mason Mount cross. Antonio Rudiger almost scored a header of his own, but his effort was cleared off the line as Palace limped into the dressing room 3-0 down at half-time.

Chelsea were in cruise control at the start of the second half and looked to add more goals, Ben Chilwell firing wide on his weaker right foot. The visitors received a shock on 63 minutes, however, when Christian Benteke leapt to score an excellent header at the back post.

But the result was put beyond any doubt with just over ten minutes remaining when Reece James picked out Pulisic at the far post, and the American tucked away his second of the match to wrap up all three points.
