Chelsea move into the top four with the win while Palace suffer back-to-back defeats in the league.

Chelsea dominated possesion in the first half but were restricted to few clear cut chances due to Palace’s resolute defending.

The hosts opened the scoring five minutes after the break when Chilwell reacted first to a rebound in the box and smashed the ball into the net.

Chelsea doubled their lead when Zouma converted Chilwell’s cross with a looping header.

Chelsea were awarded two penalties in the space of five minutes late and Jorginho scored them both.
