Chelsea sealed a 4-0 win over Crystal Palace

Chelsea 4 Crystal Palace 0 – Frank Lampard Back to Winning Ways

Chelsea got back to winning ways with a magnificent second half display as they beat Crystal Palace 4-0 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

Second-half goals from Ben Chilwell, Kurt Zouma and Jorginho’s brace from the penalty spot secured all three points for Frank Lampard’s side.

They won two late penalties in the match, both of which were scored by Jorginho, but captain Cesar Azpilicueta had to intervene after Tammy Abraham tried to take the second one.

Abraham went over to the spot to try and take the spot-kick but Azpilicueta got in his way and handed the ball to Jorginho.

The Spanish full-back has earned a lot of praise for intervening and preventing a possibly uncomfortable moment.

And on his 100th Premier League appearance, England left-back Ben Chilwell rammed in a 50th-minute back post opener to hand Frank Lampard his second premier league win of the season.

Kurt Zouma headed a 66th-minute second to leave Lampard all smiles after a poor start to the season.

Chilwell, who set up the second,was impressive along with Chelsea’s other new signings, keeper Edouard Mendy and centre-back Thiago Silva.

Jorginho added a 77th-minute third from the spot after Tammy Abraham was fouled by Tyrick Mitchell. Five minutes later Jorginho netted another penalty after Mahmadou Sakho bundled Havertz over.

The best chance for Roy Hodgson’s men came in the 63rd minute when Jordan Ayew’s diagonal effort forced a smart save from Mendy.
