Chelsea striker, Tammy Abraham, scored his tenth goal of the season when he opened scoring in Chelsea’s two-nil victory against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Chelsea’s victory means they are now five points behind leaders Liverpool and level on points with second-placed Leicester.
Frank Lampard’s side moved above Manchester City, who play leaders Liverpool on Sunday, but sit behind Brendan Rodgers’ side on goal difference.
Tammy Abraham’s 10th league goal of the season and Christian Pulisic’s header ensured the win against a resolute Palace side who barely got out of their own half during the first period.
And after dominating a goalless opening half, Chelsea finally made the breakthrough when Mateo Kovacic and Willian combined to release Abraham – with the forward stroking a right-foot effort into the bottom right corner from 10 yards.
James Tomkins missed a glorious opportunity to equalise for the Eagles, heading Luka Milivojevic’s right-wing delivery wide from six yards.
But Chelsea more than merited their win, with Pulisic wrapping up the points with a close-range header after Michy Batshuayi’s deflected shot fell into his path.
Palace’s defeat, their third in four games, leaves them 10th in the table.
