Chelsea boss Lampard: Zouma, Tomori outstanding for Crystal Palace win

The defender, who spent last season on loan at Wigan Athletic, didn't look out of place in Frank Lampard's side, and several Chelsea fans took to Twitter to voice their praise of the young Blues star.

It may not have been Abraham's best display as he was largely shackled by former Chelsea centre-half Gary Cahill, but the striker's confidence knows no bounds and he stepped up in a rare moment when he could influence the game to score his 10th Premier League goal of the season. In fact, the Spaniard had started 147 of the Blues' past 148 Premier League games.

"We've had teams come here and be hard to break down, it's a test of not only how you unlock the door, but can you switch on to make sure you don't get hit by the sucker punch?"

The most incredible piece of skill came from the boots of the United States global who, for a moment, looked like Eden Hazard when he produced the skill of the game in a first-half dribble and shot. Pulisic ensured Chelsea's sixth consecutive league win in the 79th with a header when Michy Batshuayi's shot was deflected and looped into the air. The result saw the Blues close the gap to Liverpool to five points as they overtook Manchester City, who play Liverpool on Sunday, and Leicester, who take on Arsenal later on Saturday. "We had a lot of chances", Pulisic said.

Trump later took to Twitter with additional recommendations for witnesses, saying "Shifty Adam Schiff " and others should be added to the list.


Chelsea soon broke the deadlock after the break as Willian flicked a ball through to Abraham in the Palace box for the England global to slot a finish past Guaita. "I did believe in the younger players".

"I just felt today was a game that we can get Reece some minutes because he's deserving of them the way he's training and playing and, with Zaha, what better test".

"Obviously I'm getting some time and I'm in form a bit, I'm getting some goals".

"There's ups and downs in football, so I just have to keep going, keep improving". With 23 points from its first 11 games in the Premier League, the team is also proving it can be competitive and fun to watch.
