Chelsea 2-0 Crystal Palace: Six wins in a row for Frank Lampard’s side, who move up to second

Chelsea cruised to a sixth win in a row against Crystal Palace on Sunday, with another free-flowing display from Frank Lampard’s young side proving too much for Roy Hodgson’s men.

Palace’s rapid start to the season – which saw them push into the top six early on – has been pegged back by a run of four games without a win, three of which have been defeats.

Tammy Abraham added his tenth goal of the season with a classy finish before Christian Pulisic headed in from close-range to move Chelsea up into second in the Premier League.
