  • GOOOOOAAAAALLLL!!!! PALACE 0-1 CHELSEA!! Cahill pulls up down the Palace left and Willian is left in all sorts of space to pick out Giroud on the edge of the six-yard box. The Frenchman sweeps the ball into the far corner to give Chelsea an early lead.

  • GOOOOAAAAALLL!!! PALACE 0-2 CHELSEA!! A thumping finish from Pulisic gives the visitors a two-goal lead. Willian exchanges passes with Giroud and plays in Pulisic to his left. Ward shows Pulisic down the line but the angle does not matter - the American hammers the ball past Guaita at his near post before he can even react.

  • GOOOOAAAAALLLL!!!! PALACE 1-2 CHELSEA!! WHAT A GOAL! Zaha picks up the ball a good 30 yards from goal, brings it forward slightly and belts a wonderstrike past Kepa. The Chelsea keeper perhaps could have done more to stop it, but my word that is quite some strike from Zaha.
